Spinal Cord Injury in the Child and Young Adult (ebook)


Persons with paediatric-onset spinal cord injury (SCI) also have unique developmental needs. They experience the typical ongoing challenges of each developmental stage (e.g. childhood, adolescence) as well as changes owing to their SCI. This book is intended for clinicians of all disciplines, from those who may only occasionally care for youth with SCI to those who specialize in SCI, as well as clinical and basic researchers in the SCI field. Topics covered include new developments in paediatric SCI research, current standards for optimal care, areas lacking scientific evidence, and recommendations for clinical practice and future research.

Readership:  Developmental paediatricians, paediatric intensivists, paediatricians, orthopaedic surgeons, spine surgeons, neurosurgeons, physiatrists, neurologists, urologists, plastic surgeons, psychologists,  occupational, speech, and physical therapists, biomedical/rehabilitation engineers, nurses,  life care planners, orthotists.
