Want to simplify your patient assessment and management, whilst improving your outcomes? Join us on Part B and learn how to use MDT to systematically assess, classify and treat cervical and thoracic spine problems. This course is worth 5 MDT CPD points for credentialed and diplomate members.
This 28 hour course focuses on the application of MDT to the cervical and thoracic spine. The course explores the assessment, classification and management of patients with cervical and thoracic pain, referred pain and / or functional limitations.
The first part of the course is completed as an online learning module. The online module must be completed prior to attending the remaining three days of face to face teaching.
The principles of MDT and how they apply within the biopsychosocial framework of managing patients with cervical and thoracic pain and functional limitations, is the key focus of this course. Participants will explore and practice the MDT assessment, classification and management process through lectures, workshops, discussions and patient demonstrations.
The MDT classifications of Derangement, Dysfunction and Postural syndromes are described in detail and appropriate management plans are considered, with emphasis on patient education and self-treatment.
Indications for the use of clinician procedures are also discussed and hands on techniques demonstrated and practiced. Subgroups not fulfilling the criteria of the MDT syndromes are considered and the basis for their differential diagnosis is outlined.
Patient demonstrations are used to illustrate the reassessment process and allow participants to get a realistic impression of the impact of the MDT system on different patient presentations, over 2-3 treatment sessions.
The course includes an illustrated manual and reference list.
This course will provide participants with the introductory knowledge and basic skills to begin to:
