  • Who have come together with common mission
  • Importantly, SCI AC is about more than just research.
  • Our ogranizational blueprint is based on the idea that the community-uni partners work together to generate research, whicis then translated intro products and services that are mobilized into the SCI community. You can see that the partnership is at the heart of these activities.
  • Lets take a step back and discuss the how of SCI Action Canada started. A few years ago, a group of SCI researchers wanted to investigate physical activity participation among people with SCI. Very little was known about what kinds of activities and how much activity people with SCI are participating in. The Study of Health and Activity in People with SCI (or SHAPE-SCI) was a multi-centre study that measured LTPA participation rates among approximately 700 participants with SCI.
  • Findings from SHAPE-SCI indicate that a large segment of the SCI population may be inactive. 54% of individuals with paraplegia and 52% of individuals with tetraplegia in the SHAPE-SCI study did no activity whatsoever.Martin Ginis, Latimer, Arbour-Nicitopoulos, Bray, et al., 2010a
  • A team of researchers from McMaster University, Brock University, and Parkwood Hospital performed a systematic review of all of the published evidence regarding the effects of exercise on the physical fitness of people with SCI. The interpretation of the research and formulation of the guidelines was then done by a consensus panel of researchers and community service representatives from across Canada. This is the exact same process as has been used by the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology to develop Canada’s new PAG for the general population.
  • The PAG provide recommendations for how often, how much, how hard, and how to engage in both strength training and aerobic activity.
  • The SCI Get Fit Toolkit is a four-page brochure that can be downloaded from the SCI Action Canada website at http://www.sciactioncanada.ca/guidelines/toolkit.cfmThe toolkit is designed to help Canadians meet the physical activity guidelines for adults with SCI. You’ll notice that the toolkit reiterates the PAG, and includes information about… (read list) However, sometimes reading the information is not enough to make it stick, or sometimes you need some extra motivation. Therefore, SCI AC developed other initiatives including..
  • Get in Motion is the first-ever national physical activity counseling service for Canadians with a spinal cord injury. The service is free and is implemented completely by telephone. Get in Motion is designed to provide people with spinal cord injury the opportunity to speak with an exercise counselor in order to gain support in starting or maintaining an exercise program.
  • Not all strength training has to be done in a gym! In fact, SCI Action Canada has developed home-based strength training manuals to help you get active in your home. We called these manuals “Active Homes” and there is one for people with paraplegia, and one for people with tetraplegia. You can download a pdf copy of the Active Homes manuals from the SCI Action Canada website at http://www.sciactioncanada.ca/activehomes.cfmScroll down for version for adults with tetraplegia.
  • Another example, researchers and partners worked together to develop, pilot-test and implement a home-based strength training program which resulted in training manuals and videos that are available on our website.
  • All of our resources can be found online at sciactioncanada.ca. These resources are for two primary target audiences are:
  • This is where I want to personally thank SCI BC and Bridging the Gap for your partnership in our mission to advance physical activity knowledge and participation among Canadians living with spinal cord injury
  • The next 5 slides will be added for the BTG conference presentation
  • Identify who:-Demographic information for individuals who have participated in BTG Have-a-Go sessions over the past 4 yearsIdentify what:-Current activity levels, types of activity (exercise/sport), level of sport participation
  • GAME PLAN:Duncan Campbell will be distributing the SurveryMonkey online survey to all BTG Coordinators nationwideBTG Coordinators are being asked to send the online survey via mass email to the BTG Have-a-go participants who have participants from 2009-2013.After two weeks, research assistants from McMaster University will contact participants who have not completed the online survey via telephoneData will be analyzed at McMaster University and communicated to BTG
  • One final question on the survey monkey questionnaire will ask if participants are willing to be contacted for future research (and our second study)
  • The second study planned with BTG will include semi-structured telephone interviews with BTG participants nationwide who are currently involved in sport. This project will aim to extend the results of the first project from Who and What to HOWInterviews will use the Physical Activity for people with a Disability (PAD) model as the guiding framework
  • Following the first two preliminary studies, BTG and SCI AC foresee longitudinal studies evaluating the effects of sport participation on health and QOL
