This is Hannah. The last “new” spinal cord injury (SCI) patient to win a Samsung tablet in PBF Australia’s Peer Support Challenge.
Our Challenge is now open to all SCI in-patients on Ward 1A of the State Rehabilitation Service. The Challenge has also changed so it can be completed entirely on the Fiona Stanley Hospital campus. Still presenting everyday challenges to wheelchair patients, but with the safe knowledge that help is nearby if required.
PBF Peer Support Coordinator, Richard Higgins, said that the changes have been well received by the patients and are fantastic motivators to get them independent again.
