Clinical Practice Guidelines

Since 1995, Paralyzed Veterans of America has funded and administered the Consortium for Spinal Cord Medicine, a group of 23 healthcare professionals, payer and consumer organizations, whose mission is centered on creating evidence-based clinical practice guidelines (CPGs).  CPGs are recommendations to healthcare providers based on current research findings that expert methodologists have graded for their scientific strength and validity.

The Consortium’s companion consumer guides help people living with SCI put expert information to use in their daily lives.  Guideline topics address critical health issues related with SCI. Using scientific literature and consumer input, the Consortium updates current guidelines and develops new ones while promoting a SCI research agenda that encourages scientific rigor and outcome evaluation.

Printed versions of the clinical practice guidelines and consumer guides are available for order.
