Course information

This is the ideal course for the Physiotherapist or Biokinetikist in the clinical setting to learn unique assessment & management skills for immediate and easy use.

Find the SOURCE of the presenting pathology;

 Correct faulty biomechanics in kids;

· Quickly return the patient to pre-injury level;

Apply validated tests and research based info updated to 2012.

Improve sports performance – both for elite and social.

 

The course includes the following:

Functional Biomechanics & Clinical Anatomy of the lumbar, pelvis, hip & lower limbs are taught as never before, with an immediate Clinical application.

Learn to identify abnormal movement patterns, muscle imbalances & local ‘core’ inhibition and interpret their clinical relevance.

Identify risk factors for persistent injuries of the Lower Quarter.

Assess the Lower Quarter in detail with an innovative, quick but comprehensive assessment protocol.

Clinical Reasoning. Acquire skills for predictive reasoning. Learn to prioritize management.

Learn to develop individual-specific treatment & rehabilitation strategies.

Accelerate treatment results with effective myofascial release techniques targeting the source of the dysfunction.

Learn to progress rehabilitation beyond the clinical setting to restore the patient to ‘pre-injury’ condition.

 

Participants will have to do pre-course reading as revision of the anatomy of the shoulder girdle (glenohumeral, scapulo-thoracic & scapulo-humeral) and cervical spine. A revision of the anatomy of the lumbar spine & pelvic girdle is strongly recommended prior to attending this course.

INTEGRATED CLINICAL PATIENT MANAGEMENT: LOWER QUARTER

Location:

Isa Carstens Academy, 426 Kings Highway, Lynnwood, Pretoria

Date:

Saturday 16 February 2013, 07:30-16:30

Price:

R1 400

DISCOUNTS:

     R100 for full payment 2 months prior to the date;

R100 if more than one practitioner from the same practice attends.

Course information

This one-day ‘Master-class’ is intended to challenge and further the knowledge & clinical reasoning skills of health practitioners who have attended previous ‘Going Global’ courses.

 

It will offer advanced application of clinical reasoning with biomechanical & musculoskeletal skills in the clinical setting.

 

The most important concepts from previous courses will be briefly revised, and then integrated & advanced, and finally, applied to the clinical setting. Advances in knowledge are occurring rapidly, and as with all Going Global courses, information is up to date (articles in press for 2011) from research deemed to be relevant and of a high standard, so that our decision making in the clinical setting can be evidence-based.

 

A patient who presents with lower quarter dysfunction will be assessed. A diagnosis based on the Biopsychosocial model will be made. Treatment and management strategies for both the long and short term will be reasoned & implemented.

 

This master-class should be considered interactive and challenging for the attending clinician.

 

A revision of previous ‘Going Global’ course notes is strongly recommended prior to attending this course.

DEVELOPMENTAL GYM: A TASK BASED APPROACH TO INTERVENTION FOR CHILDREN WITH MOVEMENT DISORDERS

Location:

Isa Carstens Academy, 426 Kings Highway, Lynnwood, Pretoria

Date:

Saturday 23 & Sunday 24 February 2013, 07:30-15:00 & 08:00-15:00

Presented by:

Pam Versfeld  Nat. Dip Phys

CPD points:

14 CEU's

Price:

R1 800

DISCOUNTS:

    R200 for full payment 2 months prior to the date;

    R200 if more than one practitioner from the same practice attend;

R200 for community service practitioners.

Course information

This workshop will introduce physiotherapists and occupational therapists to task based approaches to intervention for children with movement difficulties.

 

Task based approaches provide the most solid evidence for effectiveness of intervention. They are based on the growing body of neuroscience regarding motor learning, development and control which requires us to rethink and question many firmly held beliefs regarding assessment and intervention. So, be prepared to be challenged on the one hand, but also to have your own practice based evidence confirmed by the new science.

 

The workshop will also introduce participants to the Functional Strength Measure and goal attainment scoring for functional tasks. These tools allow Practitioners to provide the evidence for effectiveness of intervention.

 

The workshop will also provide an introduction to the Developmental Gym approach and will give participants credit for several modules of the full Developmental Gym training programme for physiotherapists.

This course will provide physiotherapists and related health practitioners with evidence based information and skills to meaningfully treat and prevent a fall in the patient over 65 to. Aspects that will be looked into are:

  • The main reasons for Falls in persons over 65;
  • The recommendations of the World Health Organisation with regards to the prevention of Falls, as well as the importance and implications of prevention;
  • The assessment and management of Falls Prevention according to a Western Australian model;
  • Physiotherapists’ role in the prevention and treatment of Falls.

 

On completion the participant will be equipped with:

  • An understanding of the epidemiology and the risk factors for falls in the elderly;
  • The assessment tools and outcome measures to manage the relevant client successfully;
  • The practical information and the skills to help the client to rehabilitate and prevent Falls.

Course information

Although the HPCSA's rules and regulations on advertising, touting and canvassing seem to be clear, private health care practitioners are still in the dark, especially when it comes to the practical applications thereof.

 

During this 2˝ hour interactive session, health care providers will learn:

              About branding as an essential component of marketing and advertising a private health practice;

           How to successfully and correctly market, advertise and brand your health care services within the required ethical and legal framework.

               To recognise the fine line that should not be crossed.

 

The use of social media such as Facebook, Link-it, Twitter and websites will also be discussed and explained by using practical examples.

 

Attending this course will not render the necessary qualification to be a professional physiotherapist, for which the official qualification as stipulated by the Health Professions Council of South Africa has to be obtained.

I would like to attend this course
