Providing bespoke care nationwide for clients with spinal injuries and neurological conditions
On the 28th November, I and fellow colleagues will be attending MASCIP 2019 in Loughborough.
MASCIP stands for Multidisciplinary Association for Spinal Cord Injury Professionals, this will be my first year attending and I am very much looking forward to it.
The Associations prime objective is to provide a national professional forum to promote standards in clinical practice, foster research and encourage the development of health and social care services for people with spinal cord injuries.
This year’s conference title is:
‘Up to Your Neck in it!’: Life with Tetraplegia
The focus being on various issues pertaining to the management of individuals with tetraplegia. The day will comprise of keynote speakers covering a range of topics, such as:
• Respiratory issues and management
• Case studies
• Independent living and well being
• Life with Tetraplegia, a partners perspective
To name but a few.
I have been fortunate enough to have made arrangements to meet with a stall holder who has invited me for a training session for the use and management of the Qufora system.
We look forward to providing you with feedback and hopefully some photographic evidence of our experience.
