Background and Objectives: One of the crucial purposes of the rehabilitation of people with spinal cord injuries (SCI) is to integrate them into society and improve their quality of life. Therefore, it is necessary to research on the importance of people’s needs in self-development and integration in society. This study aims to determine the level of needs of people with SCI in Saqez City, Iran, and investigate its correlation with the level of integration of these people after the injury in society.
Methods: This research was conducted in a cross-sectional descriptive-analytical type. The necessary information was collected using a community integration questionnaire (CIQ) and Kimbrol’s needs in the form of a census from 110 people with SCI in the rehabilitation unit of the Welfare Department and other related departments (aid committee, Martyr Foundation) in Saqez City. A total of 99 people participated in this study. Finally, data were analyzed using SPSS software, version 24.0 at a significance level of 0.05.
Results: In this study, 72.73% of the participants were men and the mean age was 44.67±13.91. The mean score of integration at home was 3.55±3.23, the score of the production activities scale was 2.33±1.52, and the integration score in the community was 6.97±2.83. The need for an improved house that was adapted to the conditions of the SCI people was one of the critical unfulfilled demands for these people in the direction of integration at home and social integration and productivity. On the other hand, the need for effective social and friendly activity is one of the unappreciated needs of people with SCI, which has a significant impact on their quality of life, social integration, and employment.
Conclusion: The primary demands of people with SCI, especially the need to adapt the place of residence and the workplace to increase the social integration of people with SCI, should be evaluated and intervened.
