The Neurological Physiotherapy Level 2 Course is at Intermediate level aligned to the Competence Framework.
A physiotherapy practitioner at this level can independently manage clients with more complex presentations. It would suit physiotherapists:
- With some years of experience in this area of practice
- Who have undertaken relevant further learning or qualification in this area of practice
The Course uses a mix of teaching and learning approaches with a focus on active learning and learner-centred strategies. These include PowerPoint presentations, practicals and facilitated case-based group discussions. Within the Course, participants will apply and demonstrate their enhanced knowledge, and translate this into practical application. A range of case studies and practical sessions will allow the presenters to work within their experience.
Flexibility and movement capacity are fundamental to optimal function of the musculoskeletal system. Yet there are many misunderstandings about how we effectively assess movement capacity, and more importantly, how we use interventions to improve it in rehabilitation and high performance. In exploring this complex topic, I will clarify commonly asked questions: Does stretching reduce performance? Does flexibility / stretching reduce injury risk? What variables do I need to consider for stretching? How do I implement stretching into a rehabilitation / high performance program?

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 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. 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. This MHFA course will improve mental health literacy of physiotherapists.

This blended learning course consists of three components:
Join us as we focus on the important area of palliative care and hear from physiotherapists Rachel Coghlan and Susan Gravier.
Rachel will share her extensive experience and reflections on patients' rights as both a physiotherapist in the palliative care setting, across aged care and even more broadly across her experience as a Palliative Care Researcher at the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership.
Susan has been instrumental in leading the allied health arm of the CareSearch Engagement Project, developing valuable evidence based resources for allied health professionals through CareSearch and PalliAGED.
