The article focuses on a new clinical practice guideline on bladder management for adults with spinal cord injury (SCI). The steering committee of the Consortium for Spinal Cord Medicine, which is financially supported by the Paralyzed Veterans of America, decided to develop the guidelines to help people with neurogenic bladders. The consortium is comprised of a steering committee that represents 22 professionals, consumers and insurance organizations who carefully review the guidelines. INSET: About the Consortium.
