Daily Living Context and Pressure Sores in Consumers with Spinal Cord Injury
Principal Investigator: Florence Clark PhD, FAOTA
Jan 2000 – Dec 2004
This project examines the beliefs and practices underlying the activities, habits, and daily routines of 18 ethnically diverse consumers with SCI. The intent is to document how personality, lifestyle patterns and choices, and environmental context mutually interact within the individually constructed lives of consumers to influence the development of pressure sores. These results are used to develop a series of applied products, including: (1) a consumer-oriented self-help manual; (2) a set of guidelines for rehabilitation practice; and (3) a lifestyle-oriented occupational therapy treatment model.
