Peter Esselbach is a sonographer with over 30 years experience and has worked as a MSK physiotherapist for the last 20 years. He will bring his unique perspective into the topic of how ultrasound imaging can be best incorporated into the diagnostic process and how it can impact outcomes. He will particularly speak to the latest research into the effectiveness of cortisone injections to the shoulder. A short demonstration of the diagnostic process used in shoulder ultrasound will be given.
Please note - This is a face to face session being held at APA SA Branch, Kent Town

This blended online MHFA course has been adapted from the standard Mental health first aid course for adults. Developed in response to COVID-19.
Physiotherapists are involved in the care of people from all walks of life. One in four people will experience a mental health problem at some stage in their life plus c Comorbid mental health problems are common amongst people who access physiotherapy services including but not limited to those experiencing chronic pain, chronic physical illness, multiple pain areas or following a traumatic event. In Australia, approximately one in five adults will experience mental illness in any given year and physiotherapists and other health care professionals can expect to have close contact with someone experiencing a mental illness or a mental health problem.
Lack of knowledge and stigmatising attitudes about mental illness may prevent people from seeking help or providing appropriate support because they do not know how. Stigmatised attitudes and lack of knowledge about mental health conditions are not limited to the general public and can impact on healthcare workers interactions with patients. Stigmatising attitudes can reinforce disempowerment, loss of self-belief and a sense of shame in the person with comorbid mental health problems.3,4 It has been suggested that training of healthcare workers in mental health literacy is essential to ensure appropriate support and referrals are made for people with mental illness.5 This MHFA course will improve mental health literacy of physiotherapists.
