The New Zealand Spinal Cord Injury Registry (NZSCIR) collects information about people who have had a Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) to help improve our understanding of SCI in NZ. This can help to improve how we support people with an SCI and how we prevent SCI and related medical complications.
This nationwide registry covers participants from both supra-regional spinal services in NZ (Auckland and Christchurch) with either traumatic or non-traumatic SCI.
A range of information is collected including age, gender, ethnicity, basic SCI data and where treatment was received. If consent is given, we add details about participants' treatment, complications, rehabilitation, and medical conditions.
We follow consenting participants into the community to see how SCI affects those in the community and what services are needed to ensure ongoing community participation.
You can join the registry or find more information, reports and contact details on the NZ Spinal Trust website
