The Paediatric Level 1 course is a highly interactive and practical course designed for physiotherapists who wish to develop their knowledge and skills in managing children's conditions. The course is recommended for new graduate physiotherapists with less than 3 years' experience, or adult physiotherapists who would like to gain more education in paediatrics. The case study format will allow participants to accelerate their learning of key concepts for application in the workplace. This course is a mandatory component of the experiential titling pathway in Paediatric Physiotherapy
The aim of this course is to update and improve the knowledge and skills of participants in best practice physiotherapy management of patients with acute and chronic cardiorespiratory impairments within acute, subacute and ambulatory / community settings. The intent is to build on previous entry level practitioner knowledge and expectations, and to assist with the ongoing development of skills and competence of the participants within the cardiorespiratory specialty area. At the completion of this course and in combination with course notes, readings and self-directed learning endeavours, participants should be able to demonstrate more advanced clinical reasoning skills in identifying and resolving cardiorespiratory problems. Attendees will have participated with the following sessions and will have an understanding of the physiotherapy problems related to the assessment and management of patients from a cardiorespiratory perspective. This course is a mandatory component of the experiential titling pathway in Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy.
APA has partnered with ASCA to provide the Level 1 ASCA Strength and Conditioning Coaching Course, specifically adapted for sports physiotherapists. The ASCA coaching programs are registered with the National Coach Accreditation Scheme (NCAS), which is administered by the Australian Sports Commission and is recognised as an industry leader via international affiliates across the globe. The course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to understand, apply and design programs including basic training principles and variables to physically prepare beginner level athletes to improve their sports performance. This adapted course will be conducted over one full day and is only available to SPA members. Participants must attend the full 1 day course, and required further practical supervision post-course (30 hours) with an ASCA coach, to gain accreditation.

This evidence based course aims to enhance the clinical skills of physiotherapists in the management of TMD. It presents current concepts of the syndrome including pain mechanisms and resultant pathokinematics and reviews the validated classification system of TMD and its subsets.
The theoretical knowledge supports the evidence that underpins the rationale for the clinical tests used in differential diagnosis and facilitates an integrated and critical approach to management of the related structures.
The practical component of the course assists participants to develop analytical skills and to apply appropriate treatment techniques. Emphasis throughout is placed on clinical reasoning to support management decisions of the TMD subsets and on how it directs evidence-based practice.
This panel presentation and roundtable discussion by Vic PBA Committee members is ideal for clinic owners and practice managers to review how they measure profitability and KPI's, what they measure and how they use it to maximise clinic sustainability.
Participants are encouraged to bring their key KPI's and current measures.
Breakfast is included in the registration fee.
