RHI and the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation are supporting the development and implementation of a health economics agenda for SCI research in Canada. The intent is to enhance decision-making in SCI care and the allocation of limited healthcare resources and research funding to support the translation of best practices; avoid excess healthcare costs; and protect and promote the well-being of Canadians who sustain a SCI throughout the continuum.
