      SCIA is participating in some exciting research to identify the key elements to continuing a purposeful and meaningful life following a traumatic accident resulting in a spinal cord injury.

      We are seeking people who have had their injury for over 5 years to participate in either of these workshops:

      In person consultation – ALLOCATION EXHAUSTED
      Where:
      Sydney CBD
      Duration: 3 hours
      When: Monday, 2 December 2019

      The workshop will provide an opportunity for you to talk about your experiences after spinal cord injury. In particular, we would like to know what you think are the key elements to continuing a purposeful and meaningful life. The research team are keen to develop a Program assisting people with spinal cord injury in understanding the issues surrounding purpose and meaning after a traumatic event. The team has experience in developing such a Program for people living with chronic pain and would like to hear from you what strategies/topics you would recommend what this program should look like.

      A participant information sheet will be sent to those confirming attendance before the workshop, together with a participant consent form which we will ask you to return signed and dated at the start of the workshop.
      Participation in the workshop is completely voluntary. You will receive a $200 reimbursement for attending the workshop.

      Phone consultations (very limited spaces available)
      When: January 2020

      Rural and Regional participants to participate in telephone conversations in January at a suitably convenient time to discuss the same. Participation in the telephone consultations is completely voluntary and will also require a participant consent form which we will ask you to return signed.
      There is no financial reimbursement for the telephone consultations.

      If you are interested in participating, or have any questions, please contact Suzie Stollznow by emailing info@scia.org.au or 0401 691 114.

      People from indigenous or culturally diverse backgrounds are particularly encouraged to be involved.
