Virtual education sessions

We are delighted to be able to offer Trusts and healthcare organisations the opportunity to increase their staff’s knowledge of spinal cord injury (SCI) by offering live virtual education sessions via Zoom, 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. Where possible, we will also include a session by one of our Support Network Officers.
