ATAXIA WORKSHOP

This course will focus on the principles of rehabilitation for ataxic presentations. We will review basic relevant neuroscience of the cerebellum and brainstem, as well as an update of current relevant research, with link to clinical presentations and interventions, including a clinical reasoning focused patient workshop and practical sessions. The practical sessions will cover assessment of postural control, movement analysis and movement control, and skill development relevant for common clinical issues, including central vestibular integration with balance.

 

The course is suitable for qualified PT's and OT's who work in neurological rehabilitation, while it is helpful to have attended previous BBTA courses, it is not a pre-requisite.

A PRACTICAL COURSE ON OPTIMISING UPPER LIMB RECOVERY IN PATIENTS WITH NEUROLOGICAL DYSFUNCTION

Course objectives: Increase understanding of the dynamic relationship between posture and upper limb activity within function. Identify the components required for reach and grasp of the upper limb. Develop clinical reasoning skills in the treatment and management of upper limb dysfunction in a neurologically impaired patient. Increase confidence in handling and treatment skills of the upper limb. Generate discussion about the Systems Approach to upper limb function.

CLINICAL REASONING AND SYSTEMS CONTROL UPDATE

This 1.5-day course is for physiotherapists and occupational therapists who wish to improve their systems control knowledge, clinical reasoning and clinical confidence in neurorehabilitation. The course will include relevant neurophysiology, e.g. systems control, update on current understanding of postural and movement control with clinical application, and underpinning rationales for treatment. There will be two clinical workshops with clinical reasoning discussion and shared learning. The practical sessions will explore movement analysis, movement control, and intervention skills and progressions related to the clinical workshops.

The course is suitable for qualified PT’s, particularly those working in neurological rehabilitation, and while it is helpful to have attended previous BBTA courses, it is not a pre-requisite.
