Development and preliminary trial of an on-line vocational program for Australian adults with spinal cord injury

Project Member(s): Kneebone, I.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Lifetime Support Authority of South Australia

Start year: 2016

Summary: We plan to perform two detailed studies with established methodological approaches to address our three aims: to examine facilitators of and barriers to work force participation in community-dwelling individuals with SCI; to examine the feasibility of on-line vocational rehabilitation programmes; and to create a detailed picture of service delivery in vocational rehabilitation. At the conclusion of these studies we will have assembled a pool of data relating to vocational rehabilitation that will inform public policy.
