Vestibular rehabilitation has evolved as a specialist area of clinical practice in rehabilitation as our understanding and awareness of the debilitating sequelae of dizziness and vestibular impairments increases.This course aims to provide an overview of vestibular anatomy and introduce clinicians to the assessment and treatment of individuals with vestibular dysfunction resulting in activity limitations and participation restrictions.
This course aims to provide physiotherapy-specific information on ankle injury management and degenerative conditions, to improve the confidence as well as competence for physiotherapists in foot and ankle management for the benefit of their clients.
Treating clients with persistent pain can be a rewarding but also challenging in practice. Clinicians who work in this field are often at risk of compassion fatigue or burnout.
This lecture will introduce a series of self – compassion strategies to be incorporated into your daily life in order to deepen therapeutic presence, to enjoy clinical work more thoroughly, and for an overall sense of well-being.

Introduction to PTSD, common presentation and implications for physiotherapy. This will include a case study.
Sexuality is an essential part of our being. When things are going well, it fits within our other many identities. However, if our sexuality is not going how we would like it, it can become overwhelming and cloud all aspects of our life. Unfortunately, in our society there remains so much shame around sexual expression, and we are hemmed in by social expectations steaming from ridged views on masculinity and femininity and 'normal sexual behaviour'.
As professionals, we work within our culture, as such you may also experience your own shame or fear about asking questions about sexual trauma. That's understandable. We are not taught how to talk about sex when it is going well, let alone when it is not.
However, physiotherapists are in a unique position to help people heal from their sexual shame. In doing your job, touching client's bodies, you can trigger memories of sexual trauma. Triggering is not the problem, in fact it offers an opportunity for restoration and healing. You don't have to be an expert. Empathy dissolves shame. Empathy can be communicated by giving permission to speak, by asking questions, acknowledging the physical reactions, with non-judgemental listening and validation, without trying to fix any feeling, empathy is what helps people heal.
