Back on Track revision appeal

This vital and practical handbook is about to be revised

Back on Track

The work at hand

The Back on Track handbook compiled by the New Zealand Spinal Trust is now due for a re-write since its 2014 edition. Back on Track is a vital and practical resource for those navigating life with spinal cord impairment. Some recent feedback received from a family member:

“Even though Dad is no longer with us I still find I refer to the ‘Back on Track’ manual from time to time. For me it’s actually part of the reflection process, processing that journey and the memories as it was such an impactful traumatic time for all of us and one I will never forget.

The manual is a valuable resource I will never forget the day our world turned upside down and we eventually found ourselves at Burwood Spinal unit and were given the manual to help us understand and come to the realism of the future.”

Provided to every new spinal cord impaired patient when in hospital, Back on Track is available free to take away when returning home.
