A two-day course presented by Brendon Haslam – Neuro Orthopaedic Institute

This lecture, practical and interactive course devised by Brendon Haslam and David Butler, of the Neuro Orthopaedic Institute (NOI), is about developing management strategies for the neurological patient with pain. It will help you to understand how the pain system works, the notion of pain as an output, and how this fits with neurological diagnoses/conditions. The relationship of pain to other homeostatic and response systems such as the immune and endocrine systems, cognitions and language will be introduced.

This course will cover assessment and management strategies for neurological populations (such as Stroke, Spinal Cord Injury, Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis). You will learn how to utilise strategies such as graded motor imagery, sensory retraining, and neuroscience education to influence pain and other outputs as appropriate, develop ideas of progression, and, importantly, learn how these fit within the rehabilitation model utilised in neurological rehabilitation, in both the acute and long-term setting.

NOI’s core philosophy is to create and provide evidence-based multimedia resources and courses for the treatment of pain. NOI reinvests directly into ongoing research in pain literacy education, graded motor imagery and neurodynamics.

Evidence-based Lower Limb Retraining

Retraining lower limb skills following stroke and brain injury – 3 day workshop

Sat 22, Sun 23 and Mon 24 June 2019

NeuroRehab Allied Health Network, Thomastown

Presented by Dr Simone Dorsch and Dr Kate Scrivener – StrokeEd

This workshop teaches therapists how to minimise lower limb impairments in people post-stroke and increase engagement in activities such as sitting, standing up, sitting down and walking. Workshop content is based on research about movement science/motor re-learning and evidence-based interventions.

The workshop is run over 3 days and accepts a maximum of 24 registrants. This enables small groups to work with clients and receive feedback from the presenters during clinical sessions.

The workshop will be of interest to physiotherapists from hospital and community based settings, as well as occupational therapists, who teach adults following stroke and acquired brain impairment, as well as university lecturers. The workshop focuses on retraining of limb skills.

StrokeEd offers evidence-based workshops to improve the skills, knowledge and practice of rehabilitation therapists, and influence the delivery of rehabilitation services to stroke survivors.
