Spinal Injury Nurses Association

About SINA

History of the Spinal Injury Nurses Association

The Spinal Injury Nurses Association was incorporated in 2002. The Association evolved from the annual Spinal Injury Conference which began in 1991 to provide a forum for nurses and carers and to enhance their involvement in spinal injury nursing.

The major activity of the Association is the Annual Conference held each year. Click on the Conference button on the navigation bar on the left to read about our last Conference.

SINA publishes two regular publications: Clinical 43 Notes, a 10 A4 page document three times annually in March, July and November, and Free Wings, a newsletter directed at enhancing the lifestyle of people with a disability which is published twice annually in March and October. Click on the Publications button to download a sample of these publications in PDF format.

SINA also publishes other high quality information for nurses and carers relating to spinal cord injury and these pamphlets can be bought from the Association at cost price.

The Annual General Meeting of the Association is held at the last session of the first day of the Annual Conference. Motions for the agenda should be with the Public Officer thirty days before the meeting to allow adequate notice to members.

The Spinal Injury Nurses Association is a non-profit, member based association subject to the rules of the NSW Department of Fair Trading with a voluntary President and Public Officer.
