UPDATE: A new Comprehensive Spinal Cord Injury Programme has replaced this old SCI programme. Follow this link to start the courses in the Comprehensive Spinal Cord Injury Programme.

Each time you work with an individual with spinal cord injury it is a unique experience depending on that individual’s presentation. You will use your knowledge and clinical reasoning skills to develop an individualised management plan specifically for that individual. As such we cannot prescribe to you specifically how to treat individuals with a spinal cord injury but you can use the resources below to inform your practice. We will examine different phases of management of individuals with spinal cord injury: acute, rehabilitation and long term management including best practice guidelines.


This course aims to ensure a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the role of clinical guidelines for the treatment and management of spinal cord injury as well as awareness of current best practice guidelines through each of the stages of spinal cord injury management.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Multidisciplinary / Interdisciplinary Team and the Role of the Physiotherapist
  2. Clinical Guidelines in Spinal Cord Injury Management
  3. Principles of Physiotherapy Management of Individuals with Spinal Cord Injury
  4. Motor Control and Learning in Spinal Cord Injury
