Do you have a spinal cord injury (SCI), traumatic brain injury (TBI), or burn injury? Or do you care for someone who does?

If the answer to either of these questions is yes, the Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center (MSKTC) is a free resource that can help you. The MSKTC develops easy-to-access resources such as factsheets, slideshows, and videos to support individuals living with SCI, TBI and burn injury. Best of all, these resources are research-based and developed in collaboration with leading SCI, TBI, and burn injury researchers from Model Systems funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research.

Examples of resources include:

  • Factsheets, which give brief overviews of information on key topics relating to SCI, TBI, and burn injury
  • Slideshows, that translate research information in an easy-to-understand format
  • Videos, which show how Model Systems research benefits end users
  • Hot Topics Modules, that bundle factsheets, slideshows, and videos based on Model Systems research

Example resources that can help you seek and maintain employment, and help develop your employment skillset include:

The MSKTC also recruits individuals 18 years and older with SCI, TBI, or burn injury and the people who care for them to participate in research studies and test consumer factsheets.
