2017 National Spinal Cord Injury Conference

Join us in downtown Niagara Falls for the pre-eminent gathering of clinicians, physicians, research scientists and consumers from across Canada and North America who are focused on achieving recovery and optimizing function for individuals living with spinal cord injury.

The 7th National SCI Conference, similar to prior events, focuses on how clinical care is designed, interpreted, delivered and evaluated using biological and clinical evidence to shape rehabilitation practice. In addition, we have planned a unique discussion of how advances in military medicine have informed SCI care and plan to highlight the unique needs and challenges of individuals with SCI injured in combat Key note speakers, along with workshops and oral and poster presentations, will provide clinicians and scientists opportunities to utilize information generated from multiple sources (i.e. clinical guidelines, algorithms, new technologies and rehabilitation interventions, decision support and economic analysis, and policy change, and new discoveries ) to customize and advance the rehabilitation of individuals with SCI over their lifetime. In addition, we plan a special acknowledgement of our veterans on Remembrance Day.

RehabINK

RehabINK is a digital publication project that was both founded and created by a group of rehabilitation science students at the University of Toronto. Their hope was that through this publication, they would be able to bring together our community and allow students, faculty, and researchers alike to showcase their work. Their vision is to create a sustainable student-run publication which will allow students to gain experience with the journal production and writing process. Most importantly they hope that this publication will help to spark discussion around the many thought-provoking topics we deal with every day. For that reason you will notice rehabINK is intended to be more like a “think tank” rather than a scientific journal.
