Alberta Spinal Cord Injury Education Initiative

Alberta Education Initiative: Spinal Cord Injury Reference Manual

If you have experienced a spinal cord injury, the information contained in the Alberta Education Initiative: Spinal Cord Injury Reference Manual can give you a better understanding of spinal cord injury and how to manage the changes that occur as a result. It also contains lots of information about returning home and how to carry on with your life.

Alberta Spinal Cord Injury Education Initiative: Health Care Professionals and Physicians

Responding to the expressed concerns of their members, Spinal Cord Injury (Alberta) identified the need for increased awareness and education for all healthcare providers when treating people with a spinal cord injury. In response to this need, the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital and the Foothills Medical Centre in Alberta joined together to develop a manual called Alberta Spinal Cord Injury Education Initiative: Health Care Professionals and Physicians.
