This group has developed an educational program tailored for SCI professionals with some experience, who want to further develop their competencies. The program was established as Nordic Advanced Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Course (NASCIR) and was for the first time offered as a university course (7.5 ECTS points, advanced level) in collaboration with the University of Gothenburg and Ryggmärgsskadecentrum Göteborg. The course combines both intra- and inter professional approaches, as well as on-site learning with web-based learning.
The already established ISCOS e-learning modules are an important resource, as will be cases and scenarios specifically developed for this course. The target group are teams from SCI units with individuals that have relevant experience in the field of SCI rehabilitation. During the NoSCoS 2019 conference, the plans for another course starting in autumn 2020 were presented and accepted. Due to the pandemic the course has been postponed several times, but it finally took place in 2022.
And so yesterday we finished the first Nordic Advanced Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Course (NASCIR). Thanks to all participants and course staff for your fantastic enthusiasm, engagement and contributions. It has really been a pleasure working with you all!
