Many patients with spinal cord injuries struggle with deficits in self-care and mobility, which can have a significant effect on their ability to be independent and potentially limit their quality of life. Rehabilitation nurses often partner with other disciplines within the interprofessional team to address these deficits and foster improved functional outcomes. In this course, participants will learn how to develop interventions that address expected functional deficits in ADLs and mobility to improve patient outcomes.

1. Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)

Individuals with a spinal cord injury are likely to have some functional deficits related to self-care, especially those with damage to the cervical spine. The ability to perform self-care is an important quality of life indicator. Rehabilitation nurses partner with other members of the interprofessional team to design a plan of care to address these needs. This chapter addresses the rehabilitation nurse’s role in promoting independence in bathing, dressing, grooming, feeding, and toileting.

2. Mobility

The degree to which a spinal cord injury affects a person’s mobility depends on the level and completeness of the insult. Rehabilitation nurses partner with other members of the interprofessional team to design a plan of care to address these needs. This chapter addresses the rehabilitation nurse’s role in promoting bed mobility, transfers, wheelchair mobility, and ambulation.
