The APA QLD Neurology group has coordinated with the Bereavement Service of the QLD Children's Hospital to deliver a lecture discussing management of clinician grief and loss in a caregiving profession such as Physiotherapy.
This discussion will include:
Knee arthroplasty procedures are common surgeries in Australia. Physiotherapy is an integral component in the effective and cost-efficient management of patients following surgery. Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) refers to patient-centered, evidence-based, multidisciplinary team developed pathways for a surgical specialty and facility culture to reduce the patient's surgical stress response, optimize their physiologic function, and facilitate recovery.
Please note: This is a live webinar. Online access details will be sent to registrants on the day of the event.
This lecture will provide an overview of the physical activity and stroke literature. Dr Natalie Fini will present research findings from her PhD including a two year longitudinal study of physical activity and cardiovascular risk in people following stroke. Her research demonstrates the importance of participation in moderate to vigorous physical activity following stroke.
Dr Natalie Fini is an accomplished clinician, researcher and educator in Neurological Physiotherapy. She is currently a lecturer and post-doctoral researcher at The University of Melbourne. She is also the current chair of the National Neurology Group of the Australian Physiotherapy Association. Her research interests include physical activity, stroke rehabilitation and recovery from neurological injuries.

This lecture will provide a comprehensive overview of the role that physiotherapists approved by SIRA for Workers Compensation cases as well as for CTP (there is not a requirement to be SIRA approved for CTP cases) can presently undertake with completion of the Certificate of Capacity/ Fitness. The lecture will provide an understanding and working examples on how to measure patient's capacities and tolerances, how to report this on the certificate and how to use this role to collaboratively drive better return to work and activity outcomes for your patients in both the NSW workers compensation and CTP schemes.
This is a student event for student members only.
Practical student workshop which, as the name suggests is run with the assistance of machine rather than on the floor.
Scott Brown has years of experience both in Machine Pilates and with running this APA student workshop. Backed with a wealth of knowledge he is sure to enlighten.
