The objective of the session are as follows: 1. To highlight common challenges associated with clinical trial recruitment in general, and with interventions for people with spinal cord injury (SCI), specifically. 2. To provide an overview of the recruitment processes currently in use within the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute (TRI) and the international Spinal Cord Injury Trial Toolkit (SCITT). 3. To reflect on how this discussion might influence recruitment procedures in your research setting using case based discussions


Jane Hsieh, M.Sc. has over 30 years in spinal cord injury (SCI) research through affiliations in academia, industry, and non-profit organizations. Her current role as Executive Director of the Accelerated Translational Program of Wings for Life includes managing a portfolio requiring up to date knowledge of SCI clinical trials from both scientific and operational perspectives. Involvement in large multi-centre drug trials in chronic SCI and many smaller but highly complex multi-centre trials in acute, chronic, drug, device, and biologic therapeutics has afforded Jane extensive experience in all aspects and types of clinical trials. This experience provides informed participation in Spinal Cord Outcomes Partnership Endeavor (SCOPE), Spinal Cord Injury Trials Toolkit (SCITT) and Spinal Trials Understanding Design and Implementation (STUDI).
