The Spinal Cord Injury Implementation and Evaluation Quality Care Consortium is aiming to help standardize best practices in high-priority areas so that patients with spinal cord injuries can receive equitable, high-quality support no matter where they receive rehabilitation. This initiative has been particularly successful at the Ottawa Hospital Rehabilitation Centre in the domain on sexual health, where patients, like Richard Gordon, are receiving education on how to navigate sex as a paraplegic.
