Interprofessional Course


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 development regarding the management of spinal disorders.

Specifically, it addresses 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.

2019 Schedule

Course format and design

This live educational event included blended learning of lectures, interactive sessions, case based discussions and plenary sessions.
