Shikha Gupta, PhD in Rehabilitation Science, supervised by Professor MaryAnn McColl.Topic: Extent, determinants, and consequences of cost-related non-adherence to prescription medications among people with spinal cord injuries in Canada. Overview: Many people in Canada have to forgo their medications due to cost; a phenomenon called “cost-related non-adherence.” Despite emerging evidence, there is little conceptualization or exploration of cost-related prescription non-adherence with respect to disability in Canada. Spinal cord injury (SCI) is one of the most catastrophic and devastating disability for patients, their families, the community, and the healthcare system. Although people with SCI are high users of medications, evidence is missing regarding implications of medication-related costs on their health and social outcomes. This research aims to address this.
