Managing spinal cord injury

About this course

We’re delighted to offer trusts and healthcare organisations the opportunity to increase staff knowledge of spinal cord injury (SCI) by offering live virtual education sessions via Zoom. These sessions are facilitated by members of our team of SCI nurse specialists and arranged for a date and time convenient to you.

All education is CPD*-accredited, and delegates will receive a pack of electronic materials to support the information provided in the sessions.

Our course gives you the flexibility to select topics most relevant to your staff and patients.  A basic session lasts approximately two hours and includes an ‘Introduction to Spinal Cord Injury’ presentation, plus one other topic of your choice. More topics can be added for an additional charge, and where possible we will also include a session by one of our support officers.
