Advances in Motor Control Research: Implications for Rehabilitation

This 1-day curriculum, designed for clinicians and scientists, will focus on recent advances in motor control and motor learning research in children and adolescents with cerebral palsy (CP). Scientific evidence will be presented and discussed with an emphasis on the implications and application of these insights for clinical practice. Recent findings from studies that make use of novel interventions such as motor imagery, implicit learning, action observation and the stages of motor learning will be highlighted. Examples from current clinical trials will also address key components of treatment protocols that are likely to influence and facilitate change in clinical practice. The course provides a unique opportunity to update clinicians on the latest advances in motor control and learning research in CP and current use in clinical practice.

Who should attend? Occupational therapists, Physiotherapists, Medical Specialists, Students.

Instructors CPteaching is hosting in conjunction with Ms Rachel Toovey, physiotherapist and researcher at the University of Melbourne, and highly regarded, international expert in disorders of motor control, Professor Bert Steenbergen.

General Movements Course Basic

This three and a half day course provides an introduction into Prechtl’s Method on the Qualitative Assessment of General Movements in young infants. This new assessment method has shown its merit for the prenatal and postnatal evaluation of the integrity of the nervous system. Compelling evidence is now available that qualitative assessment of General Movements (GMs) at a very early age is the best predictor for cerebral palsy. This method has become a potent supplement to the traditional kind of neurological examination.

Who should attend? Medical specialists, neonatologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, registered nurses, and other professionals in the field of infant neurology

The theme for 2018 is ‘Empowerment and Partnership’ and will demonstrate the partnerships that make us strong, well-informed, empowered clinicians. It is also to make new partnerships and to empower developing nations. All of us can think of the partnerships that we have and consider how we as individuals can enhance these partnerships, make new ones so that we can make that difference for the child who we are treating, and ultimately give them the gift of empowerment.
