Mills, Patricia Branco - Abstract

As part of my Masters, I have conducted a meta-analysis looking at how level of spinal cord injury (SCI) affects cardiovascular outcomes.  My abstract was accepted for poster presentation at an International Spinal Cord Conference in Florence, and attendance would give me the opportunity to raise awareness of the work being done in BC in the filed of disability research amongst the European clinical and research community.  The results of the meta-analysis will address how individuals are affected with respect to their cardiovascular function following a SCI, with clinical implications for improving recognition and, thereby, management of these disorders. Guidelines for the conduction of research in this field will also be established.
