All physios benefit from a better understanding of how complex trauma cases are managed from start to finish.
At this lecture, Professor Paul Smith will present on the topic 'Managing complex trauma in the ICU' - medical considerations and implications.Physiotherapist Bernie Bissett will be presenting on specific physio considerations in the ICU and post discharge.
A/Prof Gavin Williams PhD FACP has developed a program to teach advanced gait and running skills to people with neurological injuries. His PhD resulted in ‘The development of a high-level mobility assessment tool (HiMAT) for people with traumatic brain injury'. As a post-doctoral Research Fellow he has been focusing on the assessment, classification and treatment of mobility limitations following traumatic brain injury. This lecture will outline the factors in exercise prescription for transitioning from walking to fast walking and running
Shoulder pain is a common musculoskeletal complaint across the life time that presents in clinical practice. Come and listen to Dr Alison Thorpe as she presents from her recent PhD research into rotator cuff.
Frailty: Time for physiotherapists to “walk the walk”. Translating evidence to practice
1. Define the concept of frailty according to current literature
2. Recognise the implications of frailty
3. Apply knowledge of frailty tools to measure frailty in your patients/clients across the continuum
4. Apply knowledge of best practice frailty interventions to reverse or hinder progression of frailty for patients/clients care in your area of practice.
Femoroacetabular impingement: What is it, does it matter and what can we do to manage it?
DVD Playback, Warrnambool
Hip pain is common in active young and middle aged people. Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a leading cause of sport-related hip and groin pain, and increases the risk for end-stage hip osteoarthritis (OA). At present, some controversy exists around the most appropriate assessment and management of FAI. This presentation will discuss FAI, whether it matters and what evidence exists on how it should be managed.
