Who Should I See & What Should I Say? Health Care and SCI
By Jelena Svircev, MD , Staff Physician, Spinal Cord Injury Service, Department of Veterans Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System, Associate Professor, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Washington School of Medicine
Most health care providers are NOT experts in spinal cord injury. Yet, chances are that you will need the health care services they offer. We will review the challenges that individuals with SCI encounter when seeking medical care in the community and discuss signs and symptoms that can lead you to choose one health care provider or setting over another. We will also demonstrate some different approaches you can use to educate providers on SCI-specific issues and your overall health. Bring your humorous and horrifying stories of non-SCI care and join a lively discussion on working with non-SCI health care providers! Continuing education credits will be available for physical and occupational therapists: 1.5 contact hours.
5:30 – 6:30 pm Meet & Greet: meet in the hospital cafeteria (Plaza Café) to socialize and eat (buy or bring dinner) before the forum. No RSVP—just show up! (Call 206-616-2183 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.)
