Design A survey-based study. Setting SCI workshops at Peking University. Participants 125 Chinese SCI physicians attending annual workshops in two consecutive years. Interventions Not applicable. Outcome measures A questionnaire was administered. The following items were included: whether functional outcome measurement for SCI individuals was performed and with which assessment tool(s); what items should be included in the assessment; whether they knew about the SCIM, its latest version, the Chinese translation, and if so from what source; the possible reasons why SCIM was not implemented in clinical practice; and whether training before using the SCIM was needed, and the training method preferred. Results Among these physicians, 84.8{\%} performed functional outcome measurement for individuals with SCI, but only 29.6{\%} of attendees were aware of the SCIM and 20.8{\%} had used it. Lack of training was the major reason why SCIM was not used in clinical practice. Furthermore, 74.4{\%} of the physicians felt they needed formal training before using the SCIM.

Formal training on the use of the SCIM is essential for its dissemination and will improve functional SCI outcome measurement in China.",
