Education and Training

Since 1988, ParaQuad NSW has been offering training about spinal cord injury to personal carers and a number of other groups in the community including disability awareness to corporate organisations.

Training for Personal Carers

This series of training sessions have been developed for personal carers working in the community with people with spinal cord injury (SCI) or similar physical disabilities, and incorporates the following modules:

    • ‘Personal Care for Clients with a Spinal Cord Injury’ – an overview of the effect of spinal cord injury and the associated personal care requirements.
    • “Confident Communication and Professional Boundaries’ – an interactive workshop which allows participants to explore some of the difficult situations they face in their work and identify some strategies to manage them.
    • ‘Transferring and Moving People with Physical Disability’ – a manual handling workshop specifically designed for people working with clients with physical disability. The workshop contains practical content in a simulated client environment.
