Online Course: Aquatic Physiotherapy Level 2 - Unit B: Applied Physiology
This online unit examines the physiological effects of immersion and exercise in water, and applies this understanding to treatment planning for the diverse population that seeks aquatic physiotherapy. Using a systems approach, it reviews the cardiovascular, respiratory, thermoregulatory and neuromuscular systems at rest and during exercise in water, and discusses the clinical implications in aquatic physiotherapy.
Introduction to Functional Neurological Disorder - Part 1
It is strongly encouraged that participants attend lecture one if interested in attending lecture two. There may opportunities on both nights to share a few de-identified case scenarios and collaborate as a group.
Part 2 - Monday 8 June 2020
Please note: This is a live webinar. Online access details will be sent to registrants on the day of the event.
In order to improve safe mobility for their patients, physiotherapists draw knowledge from a wide range of sources including motor control & learning theories, practical courses, detailed movement analysis research, and neurological & musculoskeletal clinical evidence. As knowledge continues to grow, such a diverse source of knowledge provides challenges for teaching and developing clinical reasoning skills that inform our treatment selections. This is further compounded by many different physical, perceptual, cognitive, and behavioural impairments that impact on mobility and gait in many neurological populations. This lecture summarises several key principles and terminology that could be considered when retraining gait & mobility in many common clinical scenarios. These training principles include some key learning around skill acquisition and retention, physical capacity factors and cognitive & attentional strategies. In these challenging times, we will also discuss ways to build confidence & self-efficacy.
This 40-minute lecture will summarise how these key training principles can influence the design of specific mobility training programs for clinical populations such as Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, and Functional Neurological Disorders. This lecture will be followed by 20 minutes for questions and discussions.

Pelvic floor problems are common in women of all ages. Urinary and faecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, difficulties with defecation, pelvic pain and sexual problems are only some of the possible symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction.
Although Pelvic Floor Muscle Training has been proven to be effective in the prevention and treatment of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD) in women during pregnancy and after delivery, the lifetime prevalence remains high. This raises questions about possible obstacles or barriers to the prevention and treatment of PFD.
During this lecture several barriers to effective prevention and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction symptoms during pregnancy and after childbirth will be discussed. Let's bridge the gap between scientific research and clinical practice in order to improve women's pelvic health!

In line with the theme of National Reconciliation Week 2020, “In This Together”, this lecture will explore ways in which physiotherapists can collaborate effectively with Indigenous people in order to achieve the best possible outcomes.
It will provide an insight into how health is defined in the Indigenous population.
