Internet Study of People with SCI Using an Intermittent Catheter

Researchers at the University of Rochester, School of Nursing, are conducting a study that is looking at the feasibility of an internet-based intervention to improve self-management and outcomes related to intermittent catheterization (IC) in people with spinal cord injury.

Participation in this research does not require travel as it is entirely internet and telephone-based. The study involves 3 study nurse phone calls, use of web resources, and an online discussion forum.

Eligibility:
1. adults age 18 and over
2. spinal cord injury
3. currently using an intermittent urinary catheter
4. expect to use IC for at least 9 months

You also need phone and computer/internet access during the study period (3 months). We will enroll 30 participants who will receive a total of $50 for study completion.
