2. Group discussion is KEY
• Learning occurs best when educational
material is discussed in a group format
• “Sessions are like group therapy”
3. Variety of Teaching
Techniques
• Sessions are more powerful when
demonstrations, visual aids, problem
solving and case examples are used
• “The presenter shouldn’t just sit there and
read the slides”
4. Optional attendance but
Mandatory learning
• The material that is presented in the
education sessions is vital for learning how
to manage living with a SCI
• “I wish I had attended more sessions while
I was at GF Strong”
5. Take Control
• Participants reported that the sessions
consistently gave the message that clients
must take control of their own care
• “You’re your own best advocate”
6. Laying the foundation for
Self-management
• Attending education sessions helps
provide the knowledge, skills & confidence
to begin to self-manage
• “The sessions open your eyes, helps you
get through, makes you aware of your new
body and its demands”
7. Need for session summaries
• Summary of key points discussed during
each presentation should be given at the
end of each session
8. Print vs. online information
• The SCI manual that is given to each
inpatient is a useful resource for clients,
families, friends & future care providers. It
is a reliable, easily accessed resource.
