Abstract

Study design:Clinical practice guidelines.Objectives:The project objectives were to develop the first Canadian recommendations on a model of care for the management of at-and below-level neuropathic pain in people with spinal cord injury (SCI).Setting:The guidelines are relevant for inpatient and outpatient SCI rehabilitation settings in Canada.Methods:On the basis of a review of the Accreditation Canada standards, the Steering Committee developed questions to guide the CanPainSCI Working Group when developing the recommendations. The Working Group agreed on recommendations through a consensus process.Results:The Working Group developed five recommendations for the organization of neuropathic pain rehabilitation care in people with SCI.Conclusions:The Working Group recommendations for a model of care for at-and below-level neuropathic pain after SCI should be used to inform clinical practice.
