The Institute for Safety, Compensation and Recovery Research (ISCRR) has awarded a research grant to Professor Belinda Gabbe from the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine at Monash University to evaluate a new model of bladder management care at the Victorian Spinal Cord Service (VSCS). Professor Gabbe’s project will follow on from the research that is underway by Dr Sandra Braaf on the personal and economic costs associated with urological complications for people living with spinal cord injury (SCI).
The findings of this study will provide a comprehensive assessment of patient and staff perceptions of the new model of care to be piloted at the VSCS.
