EDISC continuing education

EDISC courses (11-15 January 2021) POSTPONED until June 2021

In light of the unprecedented global crisis caused by COVID-19, EUROSPINE has decided to postpone its EDISC courses scheduled for 15-19 January 2021, until 28-30 June 2021.
We are still confronted with uncertainty. Country-specific measures and travel restrictions are imposed with short notice, making it impossible to forecast whether the courses in January would be able to take place or whether our faculty and participants would be able to travel.
Our priority is the health and safety of our faculty, participants, partners, staff and everyone contributing to the success of our EDISC courses.
We will be combining all of our education offers, basic diploma courses, advanced diploma courses and the EDISC courses at the Hybrid EduWeek in 28-30 June 2021 at the IRCAD in Strasbourg, France.


In order to obtain the EUROSPINE Diploma in Interprofessional Spine Care (EDISC), practitioners must complete all 7 EDISC Modules of 1 to 2 days each. The education programme addresses important new developments regarding the management of spinal disorders.

Each module has specific learning outcomes which address issues related to the biomedical versus biopsychosocial model, how to best integrate new evidence into practice, how to gather clinical evidence and how to overcome barriers to interprofessional care.

Course format and design

This course includes blended learning of eLearning, lectures, interactive sessions, group work, case based discussions, workshops and plenary sessions.

The modules include pre-learning and assessments. The number of hours of personal study vary per module.

Not all 7 modules can be taken at once. A maximum of 4 modules can be attended during one EduWeek. It is highly recommended to take modules 1 to 3 (core skills) during the first year. It is recommended to take the modules in sequence starting with Module 1 ending in Module 7. It is also recommended to complete all EDISC modules within 4 years.

The following modules will be delivered:
  • EDISC Module 1: Using literature to inform my practice (core skills 1)
  • EDISC Module 2: An interprofessional approach to spine care (core skills 2)
  • EDISC Module 3: Communication and consultation skills (core skills 3)
  • EDISC Module 4: Assessment, diagnosis and management of spinal pain
  • EDISC Module 5: The aging patient seeking spine care
  • EDISC Module 6: Spinal deformities - Scoliosis during growth & other deformities across the life course
  • EDISC Module 7: Management and prevention of disability

Detailed programmes will be available shortly.
