About Can-SCIP

The Can-SCIP (Canadian Spinal Cord Injury Best Practice) Guideline is the first comprehensive living guideline for adults with traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) in Canada. The guideline has been adapted to align with our national health care environment and is designed to address the complexities of SCI care by including all recommendations from pre-hospital to community- based care. A national group of clinicians, researchers and people with lived experience within the field of SCI reviewed and developed the current recommendations based on the evidence synthesized by the SCIRE (Spinal Cord Injury Research Evidence) team and their expertise.

The Can-SCIP team would like to thank Praxis Spinal Cord Institute for their ongoing support.
