NutriNord_SCI is a Nordic, multidisciplinary network for health-professionals. Our goal is to spread knowledge based information on nutritional needs and weight management in all phases of SCI rehabilitation. NutriNord was established at the NoSCoS meeting in Linköping, Sweden, 2017.
The last years we have held workshops for health professionals, consumers and others, at the Nordic spinal cord society meetings (NoSCoS) every second year. Here, we discuss challenges, practical approaches, and share education materials in the field of nutrition and SCI. We are a non-profit volunteer network, with core members from the Nordic countries, with digital meetings 2-4 times pr year. Everyone who is curious and/or wants to participate in NutriNord’s work is welcome to contact/join us.

RN, Coordinating Nurse and Master of Educational, Psychology, Specialized Hospital for Polio- and Accident Victims.
I have worked with care, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with spinal cord injuries since 2007. With a master’s degree in educational psychology, my focus has been particularly on learning and development processes. I am particularly interested in nutrition, because nutritional status and eating habits are so important to patients’ daily lives and possibilities.
