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.
