EDISC Interprofessional Course


This course is composed of 7 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; how to overcome barriers to interprofessional care.

Target Audience

Healthcare professionals in Europe in order of availability and access: Primary Care Physicians, Physiotherapy, Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Naprapath and others who are graduated as clinicians from a recognized institution (i.e. professional school or university).
At least two years of clinical experience is recommended but all new graduates are encouraged to register.

Learning outcomes

There is a need to provide medical and non-medical practitioners engaged in conservative care with a harmonised evidence-based curriculum on patient-centered-centered collaborative care.
