Objectives: The present cross-sectional study attempts to acknowledge level of resilience, its association with quality of life, community integration, demographic/injury-related variables and identify the determinants that affect the resilience among spinal cord injury individuals living in the community.
Methods: The data was collected from 108 participants using convenience sampling method. Demographic/injury-related questionnaire were used to identify the characteristics of the participants. The CD-RISC10, WHO-QoL(Bref) and CIQ-R were used to measure resilience, quality of life assessment and community integration. Association between resilience and independent variables were examined through pearson’s and point biserial correlation whereas, univariate and multivariate linear regression analyses were applied to identify the influence of the demographic/injury-related factors that contribute to resilience, whereas independent t-test and ANOVA were employed to identify the determinants that affect resilience.
Results: Almost 78% of participants had a moderate-to-high level of resilience. In multivariate analysis, Gender, Marital Status, and Profession were found to be statistically significant. Among these predictors, employment has a higher beta value (β=0.684,p=0.026) which signifies its importance in evaluating resilience. Significant associations were established between resilience, quality of life domains, Community integration, and demographic variables which included marital status, duration since the injury, and frequency of going out.
Discussion: The present research work brings attention to the significance of using appropriate intervention such as vocational rehabilitation support as well as awareness about the injury to help strengthen resilience and reintegration amongst SCI individuals into their communities. A further longitudinal study is recommended to determine predictive factors of the dynamic nature of resilience over time.
