This course aims to provide physiotherapists with an opportunity to improve their knowledge and skills relevant to physiotherapy assessment and treatment of common conditions of older people. It takes an indepth look at the ageing process, chronic disease management, pharmacology and pain management, delirium, dementia and depression, falls and balance, strategies to optimise physical function and use of outcome measures.
This course is a mandatory component of the experiential titling pathway in Gerontological Physiotherapy.
This blended learning version of the Gerontology Physiotherapy Level 1 course includes:

In this practical and interactive course, Michael will demonstrate functional assessment tasks and exercises that can be used to accurately identify and develop an appropriate intervention.
Accurate assessment and effective functional strengthening of the lower limb kinetic chain (LLKC) is vital in ensuring an adequate recovery from common hip, knee and ankle pathology. Exercises that can be taught and performed in the clinic and home with minimal equipment, enables all clients to achieve the desired result from their exercise program.
Exercise intervention needs to be able to isolate, adequately activate and strengthen the appropriate muscles to achieve the desired result for your client. A lunge or squat does not always achieve the activation you expect and your ineffectiveness will delay your clients' recovery.
Drawing from the latest evidence based research, participants will learn and experience how to activate the primary muscles required for lower limb pathology rehabilitation.
Utilising this knowledge, the group will also assess a patient in the session and develop an effective exercise intervention to address their dysfunction.
You can expect to learn how to adequately assess clients and identify pathology and dysfunctional movement patterns contributing to their presentation and intervene accordingly to address their deficits.
Physiotherapists working in aged care, community settings and acute care hospitals frequently have to manage people with Parkinson's disease (PD) and other movement disorders.
This course will improve skills relevant to the assessment and treatment of these disorders. It will cover recent research findings, new medication and other changes in PD management (eg, surgery) and their implications for physiotherapy practice.
This lecture will be delivered by Dr Lesley-Ann Hall, consultant Neurologist at FMC. The session will cover everything MS from diagnosis to management, and even MS in the COVID-19 era.

Join us for MPA NSW's new 'Case Review' Series, where any MPA member can submit a case for review by a Musculoskeletal Specialist. This online-only event will feature a submitted complex neck/shoulder case, and Trudy Rebbeck (FACP) will offer a 'second opinion', providing insights into clinical reasoning and decision making regarding assessment and treatment.
