In 2017 the annual ESCIF Congress was organised in cooperation with the Slovenian Paraplegic Association, Zveza paraplegikov Slovenije. The congress was held for the twelfth time and for the first time in Slovenia. The congress took a place in a beautiful and accessible hotel on the Adriatic coast Dom Paraplegikov.
The theme of the congress was:
'Roadmap after SCI. Following the same path?'
This topic is very important to obtain a good quality of life of people living with SCI and to increase life expectancy with as little as possible SCI related problems during the course of life. To achieve this we must walk hand in hand with government and legislation, medical care and NGOs. And also other people living with SCI. Different European models were presented in the congress and the participants could share their experiences and views in different workshops.
