Hi Everyone, My name is Claire and I am the research assistant for an international spinal cord injury study based in Canada. If you are a woman with SCI your input would be greatly appreciated! Dr. Anne Berndl designed a survey that collects information on the experiences of women with SCI regarding bladder, bowel, s*xual health and pregnancy to address the lack of knowledge about reproductive and urogenital health in this population. Dr. Berndl is a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, Ontario. She focuses on pregnancy and physical disability. This study was created with input from women with SCI and is funded by the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation. It is anonymous and takes about 30 minutes to complete. You may skip any questions that you do not feel comfortable answering. If you are interested, please visit the survey through the link below: https://questionnaire.simplesurvey.com/f/l/sci-up-survey Thank you in advance!
