The Prince of Wales Spinal Injuries Unit returns back with its sell-out Spinal MasterCLASS in a virtual flavour. This aims to provide an overview of the whole journey of Spinal Cord injury management in the acute and early rehabilitative setting. This will benefit any clinician (Medical, Nursing or Allied Health) who would have involvement in managing Spinal patients at any stage. We aim to have a practically structured approach towards optimising MDT care and management of patients with SCI. Ideal to develop an understanding and build up skills in SCI management.
Every year, around the world, between 250 000 and 500 000 people suffer a spinal cord injury (SCI). They are a growing population with more complex and frequent than usual health presentations, the majority happening in healthcare facilities which are non-spinal specific.
It is very challenging to meet the specialised needs of this group of clients without having a specific training and understanding of their health care needs.
