A main goal of SwiSCI is to establish a reliable epidemiological database for SCI that may inform Swiss social and health policy regarding measures to prevent SCI as well as to anticipate the future demand for specialized health care.
One of the core topics of SwiSCI is to investigate on social inequalities in health, and to closely look in patterns of health behaviours among persons with spinal cord injuries.
This research program focuses on various determinants and consequences of vocational reintegration of persons with spinal cord injuries in Switzerland.
The health services research group investigates and intends to improve how persons with spinal cord injury utilize health care services.
The aim of the personal factors research program is to develop a comprehensive understanding of psychosocial resources in relation to functioning, disability and well-being in persons living with spinal cord injuries.
