Evidence-Based Upper Limb Retraining Course
Course: Evidence-Based Upper Limb Retraining Course
*This course is appropriate for AHPRA registered physiotherapists and other suitably qualified/experienced health professionals*
This workshop focuses on helping physiotherapists to minimise upper limb impairments post-stroke, and increase engagement in daily activities. Workshop materials are based on published research and movement science, and are regularly updated to include new evidence and therapies. Currently the workshop content includes task-specific upper limb retraining, mirror therapy, electrical stimulation, mental practice and constraint-induced movement therapy. Eight stroke survivors will participate in the clinical sessions.
The workshop will be of interest to physiotherapists from hospital and community based settings, who teach adults following stroke and acquired brain impairment, as well as occupational therapists and other suitably qualified/experienced health professionals.
