SCI Care: What Really Matters

July 20, 2020

Exiting the Lockdown: Implications for SCI Care

The International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) has been a model in promoting knowledge exchange within the SCI community to share research and strategies to improve care and rehabilitation. The network, through its meetings and activities endeavours to foster education, research, and clinical excellence.

Adapting to the present challenges, ISCoS has shifted their approach to increase digital engagement. Accordingly, they have launched a new podcast series that covers various aspects of spinal cord injury including etiology, prevention and care; that provide valuable insights regarding the most up to date information for those providing care for SCI. The fourth episode of the podcast features the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation (ONF) Spinal Cord Injury Program Director, Dr. Tara Jeji and other international and provincial collaborators and experts. In part two of the “Exiting the Lockdown: Implications for SCI Care” episode, experts conclude the discussion tackling whether principles of management should change in as we prepare to exit lockdown along with other key considerations.
