EDISC continuing education

EDISC courses will be delivered ONLINE!

In light of the unprecedented global crisis caused by COVID-19, EUROSPINE has decided to deliver its EDISC courses initially scheduled to take place face-to-face in Strasbourg, France on 15-19 January 2021 online.
Our priority is the health and safety of our faculty, participants, partners, staff and everyone contributing to the success of our EDISC courses.

In order to obtain the EUROSPINE Diploma in Interprofessional Spine Care (EDISC), practitioners must complete all 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.
