2022 Lecture Series Health Matters

2022 Lecture Series

Health Matters

Changing the lives of people with spinal cord injury

Spinal injuries can have catastrophic and lasting impacts on the lives of those affected, as well as their families. Furthermore, the complex and diverse nature of spinal cord injuries mean that, in the months immediately following injury, it’s extremely difficult to provide individual patients with an accurate prognosis – adding anxiety and uncertainty to the stress experienced by patients and their families.

Join the expert panels as they share their insights on current best practise in spinal care. They will discuss improving prognostic accuracy in spinal cord injury, therapies for enhancing patient outcomes and the importance of early engagement in sport and physical activity to enhance long-term outcomes.

Expert Panels

  • Associate Professor Marc Ruitenberg
  • Ms Ellen Gillespie
  • Dr Claire Panagoda
  • Associate Professor Sean Tweedy
