This Module is sub-divided into trauma of the upper, middle/lower cervical spine, the thoracolumbar spine and the sacrum. Classical spinal trauma is extensively dealt with in terms of injury mechanism, classification concepts, clinical presentation and applied imaging techniques. Indication criteria for non-surgical and surgical treatment modalities are discussed widely together with the expected outcome.

There is a specific section dealing with fragility fractures in the elderly (osteoporosis), their identification, diagnostic work up, risk factors and the augmentation procedures available in the case of persistent pain, progressive deformity or instability.

At the other end of the age curve, the Module does also focus on the specificity of pediatric and growing spine injuries, their diagnostic workup, their natural history and treatment options.

Module Structure:
This Module consists of 19 online lectures.

Mode of Examination:
Each lecture has an online pre-learning quiz and concludes with a final lecture assessment. The final assessment of every lecture in a given module must be passed, before the learner can earn their NASS Certificate of Completion.

All online quizzes and assessments use a standard multiple choice question format.
