This introductory course aims to enhance the skills of clinicians in the field of musculoskeletal physiotherapy in the management of temporomandibular disorders (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 examination and treatment techniques. Throughout the course emphasis is placed on clinical reasoning to support management decisions of the TMD subsets and on how it directs evidence-based practice.

People who are diagnosed with ataxia present with a diverse set of symptoms that require unique symptom-specific assessment and treatment selection and execution. University teaching touches only briefly on this population hence physiotherapists are often ill-equipped to confidently manage this patient group. The aim of this course is to provide and improve the knowledge and capacity of physiotherapists to assess and treat people with ataxia across the spectrum of models of care. During this course participants will be expected to undertake / demonstrate application of assessment and treatment skills for people with ataxia via peer and patient interaction sessions.
This face-to-face course has been designed to provide an opportunity for physiotherapists to develop their practical skills and clinical reasoning associated with content taught in the online Level 1 Women's Health Through the Life Stages Course.
The course will include practical skill development in musculoskeletal assessments across the childbearing year (including SIJ provocation tests), provision of education classes across the childbearing year, early postnatal assessment and advice, and group exercise prescription across the female lifespan (female adolescence, pregnancy, early postpartum and post-menopausal bone health).
In addition, the course will provide an opportunity to explore clinical case studies to enhance clinical reasoning across all topics.
Presented by the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) and Women's Health Training Associates (WHTA).

For those with minimal aquatic physio experience, the concept of managing patients in a hydrotherapy pool may seem quite daunting. What should i expect? What should i do? What do i look for to avoid anything going wrong? Why can't patients just be managed on land?A panel of physiotherapists with extensive aquatic physio experience from various backgrounds (inc musc, neuro, and paediatrics) have been invited to share their knowledge and wisdom, and answer questions that you may have. We aim for as many physios as possible to 'take the plunge' into aquatic physio with confidence, rather than feeling 'in too deep.'
