Spinal Cord Injuries Part 6: Coding Spinal Cord Injuries for Registrars
According to SCIMS, in 2021, approximately 18,000 new Spinal Cord Injuries occur each year; these numbers only reflect those patients making it to the ED. Data from 2015 shows LOS has declined to an average of 12 days for inpatient care and 32 days for rehab. How many healthcare providers will care for an SCI patient over a 12-day stay? What education do they need? Based on evaluation data from the TCAA on-demand learning system, many healthcare providers have asked for additional education on spinal cord injuries. TCAA’s Education Committee has put together a seven-part series to provide education from EMS through Rehab. The series will conclude with sections on coding injuries and how to prevent them. The series will start in August and run through Spring of 2024. Each webinar will highlight healthcare providers from across the United States.

Attendees will be able to:
1. Describe the care of a trauma patient with spinal cord injuries.
2. Discuss the changes you can make with your processes to improve outcomes.
3. Identify coding rules for spinal cord injuries.
