Welcome to EDISC!
OverviewWelcome to EDISC! The EUROSPINE Diploma in Interprofessional Spine Care is the new and innovative continuing education programme of the EUROSPINE.
To obtain the EUROSPINE Diploma in Interprofessional Spine Care (EDISC), practitioners complete 7 EDISC Modules. 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.
The following modules will be delivered ONLINE:
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)

Course format and designThis course will be delivered entirely online. This course includes a blended approach of eLearning, lectures, interactive sessions, group work, case based discussions, workshops and live plenary sessions. The number of hours of personal study vary per module.
The EDISC Diploma can be obtained by completing 7 modules over a period of three years. The EDISC programme is built sequentially starting with module 1 and ending with module 7.
After each completed module, continuous medical education (CME) credits and certificate are awarded. If the learner participates only in certain modules, modules in this case can be taken in a non-sequential way.
