Hunting for the name of a spinal cord injury article!Watch this thread
I'm doing my dissertation on spinal cord injury. There's an article I really want to read but I don't know what it's called. I know it's by Oliver, M and was written in 2001. I have a few details about how the study was carried out, which is below. If anyone can shed some light on this elusive article it would be much appreciated!
- Able-bodied controls were matched (age, gender, SES) with spinal cord injured people - Scales used:
Control measures of HADS, COPE, LOC used
Life Satisfaction Scale (Fugl-Meyer, 1991)
Visual Analogue Scale:
- quality of life - "the satisfaction received from everyday activities and relationships“
- value of life - "the intrinsic will to live in order that you may experience life";
- meaning of life - "your ability to find a reason for living which is individual to you".
Participants completed all of the above for their current status
Able-bodied controls read a factual vignette about a person with C5 incomplete SCI , 3-5 years post injury and completed the scales again
SCI group re-completed measures from perspective of able-bodied person
