The Transitionz Programme Evaluation



This research project aims to find out what patients have accessed the Transitionz Programme at the Burwood Spinal Unit since it started in March 2009. This will contribute to an evaluation of the programme. Ultimately it is hoped this will lead to both an improvement in service delivery and outcomes for people with an SCI in New Zealand.


A retrospective audit of clinical notes was used to collect demographic information and pre-collected patient outcome measures.
