How Physiowizard has not discovered this gem sooner I’m not sure but…….
The aim of this resource is to provide comprehensive information on SCI management to students and clinicians from all medical and paramedical disciplines involved in SCI care. The educational resource comprises 7 modules each consisting of various sub-modules. The “Overview for the whole team” module provides basic information of SCI Management for all disciplines involved in Spinal Injury Management. Five other modules cater to the needs of various disciplines i.e. Doctors, Nurses, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists / Assistive Technologists, and Psychologists / Social Workers / Peer Counsellors. It is recommended that users go through the first module, “Overview for the whole team” before they access their discipline specific modules. The 7th module provides information on various aspects pertaining to the prevention of SCI.
