Method: To answer the question of what people with spinal cord injury (SCI) can likely expect in terms of quality of life (QOL) and health as they approach the end of life, longitudinal data from the Spinal Cord Injury Model Systems Collaborative Aging Study were examined. Result: Over the course of the study, only 1 in 4 reported poor or fair QOL and health and provide reassurance that life with SCI can be both healthy and of a good quality, even in the last years of life.
