Improving the skillset of the Allied Health Professional in exercise prescription and rehab programming
The course series objective is to upskill and educate allied health professionals in the field of exercise prescription and rehabilitation programming involving pain/ailments, injuries and surgery for the knee, the shoulder and the lumbar spine. You will be learning key exercises and progressions, as well as how to design, construct and implement effective rehab programs for your clients from one of Australia's leading Physiotherapists. You will become proficient in selecting the right exercises, constructing the best rehab program for each individual acute case as well as developing long term program layouts for common chronic complaints and post-operative protocols. On these courses Tim Keeley brings together over 21 years of extensive clinical experience, supported with evidence-based practice and research.
Right now more than ever, it is so important that allied health practitioners like you need to be on board in delivering the right exercises and the right programs. It is important to not only create excellent outcomes and patient compliance, but to improve your own development and set yourself apart from your peers in such a competitive workplace.
The exercises and programming knowledge you will learn on these courses will increase your toolkit and skillset, to help you continue to deliver the best treatment choices and rehabilitation regimes for your clients.
All the text knowledge in the world is no match for being able to do the exercise yourself and show your client. Allied health professionals need to be able to relate to the client, give the confidence that they know how to exercise correctly, be able to demonstrate exercises and then know how to teach them effectively. Each client will have different abilities, coordination, strength and conditioning, as well as personality. What may suit one client with exactly the same injury may not suit another simply because they think, act and work differently. You need to be able to adapt your ideas and exercise progression philosophy to the individual, as well as to your environment.
There are 3 courses, each completely separate and all with two delivery options:
Face-2-face courses (2 Day) at one of the locations
Online courses, where you get 6 weeks to complete
You DO NOT have to do all three courses if you only wish to choose one area.
A degree qualification in either: Physiotherapy, Physical Therapy, Osteopathy, Chiropractic, Exercise Physiology, Podiatry, Sports Science or Sports Therapy. You must be a registered clinician with current Professional Indemnity Insurance to enter any of the courses. Face-2-face course participants are required to act as subjects or models and work in groups for practical workshop sessions. By accepting the T+C's upon registration you understand and agree to that the sessions may be recorded for online material.
