ACL Tears: Non surgical management

ACL injuries are an extremely common and costly injury in the Australian general and sporting population. Almost routinely, patients are offered surgical care to return to high-level activity and pivoting sports. This concept, as well as the dire view of a patient or athlete who has suffered an ACL tear has been widely propagated in mass media, and has affected populations both amateur and professional. Current best research challenges these ingrained paradigms.

This unique course will give clinicians the confidence to best assess, and provide a comprehensive non-surgical management program to, a patient presenting post ACL injury. During the course, participants will participate in: discussion around evidence-based risks, harms and benefits of non-operative and operative ACL tear care research-based assessments that assist determination of return to play case study discussions of both non-operative and operative patients. observation of the presenter's assessment, management and creation of a Treatment Management Plan for a patient with an acute ACL tear (If a patient can be sourced, this session will be incorporated into or replace the case study session).

Women's Pelvic Health Level 1

This 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 Pelvic Health Course.

This practical course will be structured around a ‘clinical case studies' format. Physiotherapists will be guided through a number of case studies requiring interpretation of completed Australian Pelvic Floor Questionnaires, bladder and bowel diaries, as well as results of Trans-Abdominal Real Time Ultrasound (RTUS), to develop an introductory management plan involving pelvic floor muscle training (where indicated) and lifestyle advice for each case.

In particular, physiotherapists will have the opportunity to perform Trans-Abdominal RTUS to assess pelvic floor function and bladder volumes, as well as learn the necessary procedures required to perform a visual assessment of anal sphincter contraction (note: no internal examinations are performed at Level 1).

This course will be presented by the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) in combination with Women's Health Training Associates (WHTA).
