Training for Healthcare Professionals

Please note that due to the current restrictions around the coronavirus pandemic, we are unable to schedule any face to face education or training. Please visit our Virtual education sessions page or contact Karen on the details below for information on virtual education offerings.

The SIA Academy provides a variety of training for healthcare professionals working in non-specialist settings, ranging from Study Days to inhouse education sessions facilitated by our SCI Nurse Specialists. Our CPD-accredited training and education gives an insight into the complex and sometimes unique issues that affect people living with spinal cord injury.
