James is a Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine, with extensive clinical experience and research expertise in the field of spinal cord injury medicine and rehabilitation, having worked across the continuum of care in acute hospital, sub-acute rehabilitation and community outreach services. His research is broadly focused on areas including management systems, functional, psychological, health and participation outcomes, pain management, health service delivery and utilization, quality of life, life expectancy and use of assistive technologies, such as functional electrical stimulation.
James is Chief Investigator for a 2012-2015 NHMRC Partnership Project entitled ‘Right care, right time, right place: Improving outcomes for people with spinal cord injury through early intervention and improved access to specialized care’, examining timeliness of access and quality of care, rate limiting steps and decision-making processes along the early care pathway from scene of injury to definitive treatment in a specialized Spinal Cord Injury Unit, and resultant health outcomes following traumatic spinal cord injury. It involves collaboration among key stakeholders responsible for and interested in health services provision, funding, policy development
and research into care for people with SCI.
This event is made possible through Renison University College, University of Waterloo, the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation, and the Centre for Family Medicine through an International Research Partnership Grant
