Results: In the present study, the result of the KMO test was determined to be 0.89, and that of Bartlett├?┬ó├?┬?├?┬?s test was 2.919; both tests were observed to be significant at p<0.001. The Cronbach ├?┬?├?┬▒ reliability coefficient of the self-perceived burden scale, was determined to be 0.96. Significance of results: As a result of the statistical analyses, it was determined that the self-perceived burden scale, had validity and reliability and could be used in the Turkish patients with spinal cord injury.
