Falls, sports, and vehicle accidents are the leading causes of traumatic injuries among the 161 people covered by the New Zealand Spinal Cord Injury Registry’s first report, released yesterday by ACC Minister Iain Lees-Galloway.
You may remember the launch of the Registry in 2016, when it was jointly established by ACC, Canterbury District Health Board and Counties Manukau Health, in partnership with the Rick Hansen Institute (Canada).
This report is a significant step toward improving information sharing and the understanding of spinal cord injuries, and the common complications that occur following injury.
