Training for Healthcare Professionals

Symposium on Spinal Cord Injury Acquired Through Illness or Condition
21 February 2018, Cedar Court Hotel, Wakefield WF4 3QZ

This event will run 9.00am-4.00pm (approx) and lunch and refreshments will be provided. The SIA Healthcare Professional Study Day programme is supported by Slater & Gordon Lawyers and SIA Healthcare


This Study Day, which has been renamed from ‘Managing Spinal Cord Injury- the non-trauma perspective’, was relaunched in London in September with a fantastic response, so we are delighted to be able to hold it again. The agenda can be downloaded here, along with a flyer, and will look at issues including Cauda Equina Syndrome, Metastatic Spinal Cord Compression (MSCC) and Transverse Myelitis. The cost to attend is £50 +vat for NHS health professionals and students and £100 +vat for non-NHS staff.

Our cancellation/non-attendance policy applies to all SIA training events.
