The overall purpose of this study is to investigate progression of impairments the first year following injury beginning with inpatient rehabilitation in the acute phase. In the second year of the 3-year award we met nearly all aspects of our proposed SOW. Both sites maintained all regulatory requirements, IRB approvals from local institutions, maintained all modifications and continuing renewal. Collection of baseline data at sites continued total SCI 33 and control 27 with 75 percent of 6-month follow-up assessments completed on appropriate timeframes. One-year assessments for both group with SCI and controls were initiated. The addition of GSRH to the Drexel site for recruitment of SCI enhanced enrollment with 1617 completed by year end. Monthly PI meetings and quarterly full team meetings facilitated ongoing communication to include strategies for recruitment and problem solving as needed. All reports quarterly technical and annual financial were comprehensive and were submitted on time. We disseminated preliminary information in January 2019 presentation at Combined Sections Meeting of the American Physical Therapy Association. Three abstracts have been submitted for the CSM of APAT 2020 conference.
