How much practice is enough?

How can therapists increase patient motivation and involvement in practice?

How can therapists help coach patients with varying levels of motivation?

The aim of this workshop is to recommend strategies that can increase the dosage and intensity of practice in inpatient, outpatient and community rehabilitation settings. The workshop is relevant to diagnoses such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, amputation and hip fracture and will be of interest to physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, allied health assistants and nursing professionals. Evidence is reviewed for the effectiveness of extra practice, and strategies that have been shown to increase practice including one-to-one, semi-supervised and independent practice.

Target Audience: The workshop is appropriate for any allied health staff and nurses working in rehabilitation. The majority of the examples and case studies used to illustrate the learning content are based on upper limb and lower limb practice.

Balance Workshop

Providing clear exercise guidelines to successfully improve balance and prevent falls
Saturday
26th & Sunday 27th October

Venue: Rehabilitation Unit. Level 5. SCUH

Cost: SCHHS employee $550 / Non-SCHHS employee $570

Presenters:  Dr Simone Dorsch   &   Dr Kate Scrivener

Why should people not use their hands for support when doing balance exercises?

Do walking aids prevent falls?

How can therapists help people to ‘challenge’ their balance while being safe?

This balance workshop has been developed following the work by Professor Cathie Sherrington and colleagues that provided clear exercise guidelines to successfully improve balance and prevent falls. Despite this evidence, implementing these guidelines in clinical practice continues to be a major clinical challenge. Therapists have asked the StrokeEd collaboration about how to implement effective balance strategies that are challenging, of sufficiently high dosage and safe. This workshop aims to assist clinicians to develop evidence-based solutions for people with balance difficulties.

Numbers are limited so that therapists can work with clients in small groups and receive feedback from the presenters during clinical sessions. The workshop focuses on analysis of balance, retraining of balance and falls reduction in any population of people that are at risk of falls. The clients will have problems with their balance, with a variety of diagnoses including neurological, orthopaedic and frailty.

Target Audience: The workshop will be of interest to physiotherapists, physiotherapy assistants and other health professionals from hospital and community based settings who work with people with balance problems.
