The module covers:

  • The key concepts that apply to assessment of Spinal Impairment.
  • The way in which some terms are given specific meaning within the Guides is different to that from clinical practice.
  • A logical path for consideration of Spinal Impairment, whether using the Guides, or with use of the Spinal Impairment Guides Modification Document.
