On behalf of the organising committee, I invite you to the 27th Australia New Zealand Spinal Cord Society, Annual Scientific Meeting .Three simple words define the ethos of the conference : Hope, Care, Cure in the context of spinal cord impairment. Together the three deliver superior patient care and advance new discoveries through research in spinal cord impairment. For the last 27 years ANZSCoS has been instrumental in promoting research, knowledge and advocacy for individuals with spinal cord impairment.
We invite all sponsors and exhibitors to participate and make this conference a huge success. There will be up to 400 delegates attending the trans Tasman conference. The delegates will come from all streams of Australia, New Zealand health system. There will be surgeons, rehabilitation physicians, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social workers, clinical psychologists and researchers who are committed to the three simple words hope, care cure for the spinal cord injured.
This provides great opportunity for the exhibitors and sponsors to raise awareness of their product and educate the multidisciplinary teams which in turn will make the lives of spinal cord injured individuals much better.
The programme will offer interesting topics for policy makers and professionals involved in the management of spinal cord injuries. The sub-themes cover professional standards and ethics; education and training; management of complex cases.
The theme of the conference is “Paddling our Waka together”. The industry, sponsors and exhibitors are part of the team paddling the waka to make the lives of spinal cord injured individuals better. Hence, your participation is crucial in making this conference a huge success.
