Working With People With Ataxia


Course: Working with people with ataxia

People diagnosed with ataxia present with a diverse set of symptoms that require unique symptom-specific assessment and treatment selection and execution. University teaching touches only briefly on this population, hence physiotherapists are often ill-equipped to confidently manage this patient group. The aim of this course is to provide and improve your knowledge and capacity to assess and treat people with ataxia across the spectrum of models of care. During this course you will be expected to undertake/demonstrate the application of assessment and treatment skills for people with ataxia via peer and patient interaction sessions.

Completing this course will enable you to:

understand the diverse range of pathologies that can lead to the symptom of ataxia
understand the range of assessment tools/outcome measures available to capture the impairments and function in people who have ataxia
understand the evidence and role rehabilitation and exercise plays in the management of people with ataxia
undertake an evidence-based assessment and treatment of people with ataxia.
