Research subject

Living with Spina Bifida often requires life-long medical care and support, due to complications and often impaired cognitive function. This project involves all persons with Spina Bifida in a large county council and includes medical, physical, psychological, cognitive and social aspects. Persons with Spina Bifida also describe their situation through interviews and participatory research.
