SwiSCI - Inception cohort

Pathway 3: The Inception Cohort

Pathway 3 is an inception cohort study running since May 2013.

The study includes persons with SCI at an early stage after onset of injury. Patients are recruited at the time of admission to their first rehabilitation program in one of the collaborating rehabilitation centers (Nottwil, Basel, Sion, Balgrist). Standardized and detailed information from the acute and early rehabilitation period is collected prospectively with foci on biomedical, functional, and community outcomes.

The design of the 3 pathways

SwiSCI is composed of three complementary pathways that, taken together, will establish a population-based and continuous cohort study. 

SwiSCI Pathways

After recruitment through one of the three pathways, SwiSCI aims to follow-up participants over the life span through a survey in the community every 5 years.
