Spinal cord injuries are commonly seen following disasters and conflicts. They are associated with a high risk of complications due to delayed transfer to specialist centres, especially in low resource settings where pre-existing spinal cord injury services are often minimal. This course will examine the assessment and treatment considerations for people with spinal cord injuries and highlight some of the common complications seen in disaster and conflict settings.


This course aims to increase your knowledge of the assessment and interdisciplinary treatment of people with spinal cord injuries in disasters and conflicts. It also highlights the higher risk of secondary complications due to factors associated with disrupted health systems and issues of access.
