About this course
Delivered by one of our support network officers, these hour-long sessions are a fantastic opportunity for healthcare professionals to increase their awareness of issues around living with a spinal cord injury.
Our support team help spinal cord injured people in hospital, at home and in the community. From being newly injured, through to being discharged and beyond – they can provide a lifetime of support or just be there at tough times. And most of our officers are living with a spinal injury themselves.
This experience gives them a unique role in supporting and educating healthcare professionals in many different settings.
These Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accredited presentations are ideally suited for team training sessions. By the end of the sessions, those taking part should leave with an increased awareness of what it’s like to live with a spinal cord injury from someone with first-hand experience. And knew-found knowledge on the wealth of support our support advisers and other teams here can provide.
Who would benefit?
Suitable for healthcare professionals in many different settings who would benefit from the personal and professional insights into SCI that our Support Network Officers can provide.
There is no set fee for in-service training, but we do seek to reimburse costs as far as possible.
