National Spinal Cord Injury Conference 2019

The 8th National SCI Conference promotes and embraces the diversity of human experience in terms of sex, sexuality and gender expression. We will promote unbiased methods and attitudes during the conference. 

Approximately 40,000 Canadians are currently living with a spinal cord injury and about 1,000 Canadians acquire a new spinal cord injury or disease each year.

These individuals not only have to adjust to their new circumstance, but must also be cautious of many secondary complications including: pressure sores, osteoporosis, depression, etc. How can you assist their rehab process to allow for a smooth transition back into the community?  Are their unique considerations based on sex or gender that should influence service delivery or may augment rehabilitation outcomes and or community participation and wellbeing? Can we up our game to ensure the health of women?

On October 17-19, 2019 join international research leaders in spinal cord injury, clinicians and consumers in Niagara Falls, Ontario for the Canadian Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Association (CSCI-RA) 8th National Conference.

The Conference organizing committee is putting together an exciting program featuring keynote addresses, podium and poster presentations, workshops, and breakout sessions. Additional highlights include a hands-on precourse and a delegate reception.

The 7th National Spinal Cord Injury conference was a huge success attracting over 400 delegates from across Canada and internationally. On behalf of the Organizing Committee we cordially invite you to actively participate in this Conference.
