 The Integration of Postural Control and Selective Movement for Functional Activities (Part A)

Duration: Half Day Friday and All Day Saturday

Course Tutor: Paul Johnson

Course Description: This BBTA module will include patient demonstrations, theoretical and practical sessions. It will focus on the assessment and treatment of the acute and sub-acute patient.

Course Aims:

  • To identify a framework for assessment and treatment of the acute/subacute patient
  • To develop skills of observation, analysis, and facilitation in a neurologically intact subject
  • To link the evidence base and clinical practice

Learning Outcomes:

  • Describe key components relating to the analysis of position/postural sets (supine and sitting) and movement sequences (supine to sit, sit to supine)
  • Analyse movement in terms of efficiency and recognise potential causes for lack of efficiency
  • Understand the wide posture and tonal variations within neurologically intact population
  • Problem solve appropriate handling in individual models with respect to facilitation of movement

 

Suitable for: Qualified Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists working in neurology
