Spaulding is one of 14 institutions selected by the National Institute on Disability Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) to participate in the SCI Model Systems Project. Model Systems sites demonstrate improved care, contribute to a national SCI database, foster SCI research, and provide SCI education. Dr. Leslie Morse, DO, is the program director.
The heart of the SCI Model Systems Project is a national database that tracks information about injury, care, rehabilitation, and living with SCI. Data is collected by Model System sites, including Spaulding. Data is gathered on people age 10 or older, beginning at the time of their SCI with follow-up questionnaires every 5 years.
