New Zealand SCI Registry, modeled after RHSCIR, releases annual report

Falls, sports, and vehicle accidents are the leading causes of traumatic injuries among the 161 people covered by the New Zealand Spinal Cord Injury Registry's (NZSCIR) first annual report. Degenerative disorders, infections and auto-immune diseases were the most common causes of non-traumatic injuries.

Modelled after RHSCIR, NZSCIR launched in 2016 and captures experiences of New Zealanders who have sustained a traumatic or non-traumatic SCI in order to help facilitate the translation of research into clinical practice and promote evidence-based practices. RHI supported the establishment of the Registry and contributed to its annual report.
