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).
This course aims to help participants further their assessment and treatment skills and better understand multidisciplinary management of complex vestibular patients, spanning from acute to community settings. It comprises a mixture of lectures and practical components. This course is suitable for neurological, musculoskeletal and emergency physiotherapists interested in vestibular management and who have completed an Introductory Vestibular Rehab Course.
Presented by Specialist Sports Physiotherapist Jane Rooney, the course will cover contemporary evidence based assessment and management of commonly presenting acute knee conditions. This 2-day course has a large practical component and interactive clinical problem solving.
Join Jane Rooney, FACP, Specialist Sports Physiotherapist (as awarded by the Australian College of Physiotherapists in 2009) during a masterclass observation session in assessing and treating a live patient with a complex knee condition.
Participants will undertake a clinical reasoning form during the examination; participate in a Q&A session; and explore Jane Rooney's experienced clinical reasoning process, including differential diagnosis, treatment plans and prognosis.
This hour and half seminar is ideal for physiotherapists undertaking the APA Specialist or Titling training pathway, or physiotherapists wanting to improve their clinical reasoning and patient examination skills.
The masterclass is included in the full ‘The Acute Sporting Knee' course registration but can be purchased as an individual event.
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).
