Second Annual UCLA Spinal Cord Injury Symposium

Course Description

The UCLA Spinal Cord Injury Symposium is a one-day course that presents contemporary and future strategies in the management of spinal cord injury. The first half of the day emphasizes the clinical management of spinal cord injury ranging from initial patient evaluation through postoperative rehabilitation. The management of both chronic spinal cord injury related to cervical spondylotic myelopathy and acute traumatic spinal cord injury will be discussed in didactic lectures, case presentations, and question and answer sessions. Recent evidence-based studies will be utilized. The second half of the course will be focused on emerging basic science and clinical research, and delves into novel functional restoration and neural repair strategies including neuromodulation, stem cells, and cellular therapies. A patient testimonial regarding life with a spinal cord injury will provide context and meaning to all of the treatment modalities.

Target Audience

The target audience is health care professionals and researchers invested in improving the care for spinal cord injury patients including neurosurgeons, orthopedists, neurologists, intensivists, rehabilitation specialists, physiatrists, pain management physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and spinal cord injury researchers.
