Assessment is arguably one of the most important steps in the rehabilitation process, as it provides the information on which clinical reasoning will be based and upon which decision-making is reliant. The treatment efficacy is only as good as the assessment on which it is based and should be an ongoing and continuous process. This course will explore the assessment of Spinal Cord Injury in relation to the World Health Organisation (WHO) International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and review the range of outcome measures available to utilise across neurological conditions.


The aim of this course is to ensure a comprehensive understanding of spinal cord injury assessment including knowledge of the ASIA Assessment and the varied outcome measures which can be used to monitor impairment as a result of spinal cord injury.


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

  1. Framework for Physiotherapy Management
  2. Neurological Assessment and Classification of Spinal Cord Injury
  3. Prognosis and Goal Setting
  4. Outcome Measures for Spinal Cord Injury

Target audience
