Course Aims:

  • To discuss the pathophysiology and consequences to the patient with established movement dysfunction
  • To develop skills of observation, analysis, and facilitation in a neurologically intact subject
  • To link the evidence base and clinical practice

Learning Outcomes:

  • Explain the pathophysiology and consequences of a Upper Motor Neurone syndrome
  • Demonstrate a deeper understanding of postural and tonal variations within the normal population
  • Problem solve appropriate handling in neurologically intact models to align/activate distal key points
  • Draw upon improved assessment skills to treat a patient with established movement dysfunction
