Speaking to physiotherapists this lecture will focus on enhancing engagement in Disability services for Indigenous Populations, developing relationships, considerations in communication, goal setting and working with families.
Improving on your knowledge and clinical reasoning gained from our level 1 course, this course is designed to give physiotherapists sound knowledge of the anatomy, biomechanics and pathology of injuries to common body areas and across different sports. Topics covered include hip and groin, elbow wrist and hand injuries, foot pain and tendon pain.
First time this course is offered in Brisbane for many years!
The McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) is a commonly used method of assessment, classification and treatment for patient with symptoms arising from the lumbar spine; however most undergraduate physiotherapy programs only teach a very brief overview, if at all. The aim of the course is to introduce participants to the McKenzie Method of MDT and its utility for assessing, classifying and treating patients with symptoms arising from the lumbar spine.
This course encompasses the differential diagnosis, assessment and management of the cervical spine and shoulder. It aims to integrate research evidence with best clinical practice and is designed to improve participants' ability to differentially diagnose contributing mechanisms and impairments in patients presenting with pain in the upper quadrant, with consideration of cervical, neural and shoulder structures. A broader range of clinical examination techniques and advanced clinical reasoning and management options will be covered.
This course will explore the theoretical and practical sides of managing sporting injuries with an emphasis on current research. Presented topics include shoulder, ankle and knee injuries with focus specifically on ligament, tendon and muscle. Participants will also gain information on acute onfield management and travelling with a sports team, as well as a large practical component on taping techniques.
