Reflection on Basic Bobath Course
I would highly recommend the Basic Bobath Course to any Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist working within neurology. The course has finally given me the link between theory and practice, which has helped to develop my assessment, handling and treatment skills. During the course the lectures were very informative and interactive. There was plenty of time for practical sessions to gain feedback on handling skills from the tutors and peers. This together with patient workshops helped to further develop treatment options and clinical reasoning.
The tutors, Sue Armstrong and Debbie Strang, provided an excellent and engaging learning experience. They were always very approachable throughout and gave plenty of time for questions and discussion. We also benefited from having two overseas trainee Bobath tutors on the course, they gave us excellent demonstration and feedback on treatment handling techniques. Overall the course has greatly improved my practice.
