Prechtl’s Method of the Qualitative Assessment of General Movements: Basic Course Darwin 2021

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
