SCI & U is a unique and consumer-centered self-management portal for Canadians with Spinal Cord Injury. It offers information and connections to members of the Canadian SCI Community. In the Winter of 2017, SCI & U will additionally offer 1-on-1 health coaching services to help people with SCI manage their health needs. SCI & U has been developed by Canadians with the lived experience of Spinal Cord Injury in collaboration with rehabilitation professionals.
SCI & U offers self-management information, a community blog, self-management stories and access to online events and meetings. In the Winter of 2017, SCI & U will offer 1-on-1 health coaching services as well. Our online coaches are Canadians with SCI and who have been trained to build others' confidence and health management capabilities.
Thanks to pilot funding from the Rick Hansen Institute, SCI & U offers services to clients free of charge.
