This was the theme of the European Spinal Cord Injury Federation congress in Tuscany in 2012. The report is based on the findings of a study carried out by the Italian research institute INSTUD in preparation for the congress, on presentations made during the congress by ESCIF member organisations on the current situation in their countries, and on further information and discussions evoked during the congress. The congress presentations and the INSTUD report can also be downloaded from this website. We suggest that you read these as background to this report.
