Rick Hansen Spinal Cord Injury Registry

In September 2006, the Hamilton General Hospital was the first site in the province to initiate the Rick Hansen Spinal Cord Injury Registry. Hamilton General Hospital is one of the top 5 sites within the country in terms of consent rate for the registry. In addition, it is the only Spinal Cord Centre in the province to have actively integrated SCI Navigators through the Canadian Paraplegic Association Ontario with our hospital  Acute and Rehab Teams. We are currently participating in a number of multisite research studies involving both acute and rehabilitation spine services.
