Nielsen Foundation and the Rick Hansen Institute; as well as SCI professionals to discuss the role of CPGs in SCI care. An index case on the topic of Ventilator Weaning will be presented to provide a concrete structure for discussion. The case will provide a frame of reference for the panel discussion around the respiratory management of high cervical SCI. The speakers will provide historical context for efforts to align stakeholders; as well as, discussion of implications of current endeavors which directly and indirectly guide the medical management of spinal cord injury. The panel participants will be moderated in their discussion by Dr. Ken Parsons.
