The delivery of the taught neurophysiology component on a Basic Bobath Course has been reviewed as part of an ongoing BBTA process and has been more specifically designed to develop your knowledge and understanding of the systems model of motor control and its clinical application.
The course content emphasises the importance of evidence-informed practice with a focus on advancing clinical skills. The first two weeks on the Basic Course consists of five lectures conveying key principles of the Bobath concept, critical information on postural control, locomotion, reach, grasp and manipulation as well as clinical consequences of the upper motor neuron syndrome. Additionally tutorials explore neuroplasticity and motor learning in the context of influencing recovery, and the application of the neurophysiology to specific patients seen on the course to enhance clinical reasoning and treatment intervention.
There is time on the course for consolidation of what you have learnt during module 1 during patient demonstrations, workshops and treatment session with respect to the clinical neurophysiology as well as its application in module 2, the case report.
To underpin the taught aspects of neurophysiology a pre-course module is available to facilitate participant’s knowledge of applied neurophysiology prior to attendance on the course.
Bringing Neurophysiology to life on the Basic Bobath course is what the British Bobath Tutors strive to do in clinically relevant application to our actual patients! Come and join us on a course for your own clinical development, and take your own patients further in their recovery. Apply now: www.bbta.org.uk under ‘courses’.
