NIDRR Model Spinal Cord Injury Systems

The thirteen SCI rehabilitation programs listed below are designated as Model Systems by the National Institute of Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR). To qualify for designation as a Model System and to receive funding from NIDRR, rehabilitation programs must utilize and evaluate a prototype of SCI treatment based on providing continuity of care through the development of five areas within a system.

 Model Spinal Cord Injury Systems must have:

  1. Emergency medical services.
  2. Expertise in treating trauma.
  3. A comprehensive rehabilitation program.
  4. Vocational and psychological counseling services.
  5. Community reintegration services.

Model systems must also conduct research of interest to NIDRR and collect data on SCI. In order to gain and maintain expertise in treating SCI, designated systems are expected to provide care to a significant volume of people with SCI, although consumers should be advised that designated systems are not evaluated for their quality of care.

As with any treatment decision, NSCIA recommends that persons who have spinal cord injuries should thoroughly investigate any medical or rehabilitation treatment facility before deciding to be admitted.
