Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This systematic review investigates whether community transition programs reduce hospital readmissions and improve quality of life for adults ages 18 to 65 who experienced traumatic spinal cord injury and are making the initial transition from subacute rehabilitation back to the community. This review will enhance OTs’ familiarity with the evidence base for transition programs to inform practice and future program development.
