This course is for qualified therapists (Physiotherapists & Occupational Therapists) 'Specifically aimed at those working with neurological conditions but may be of interest to those working in other areas'.


    Learning Outcomes

    • Understand the terms posture and balance as they relate to a 'normal movement' perspective.
    • Identify key aspects involved in maintaining the integrity of the upper limb in the early stages of recovery post CVA.
    • Relate the ability to control 'selective' movement of the upper limb to overall posture and balance.
    • Structure an assessment of the upper limb taking into account alignment, tone, patterns of movement, and relate this to potential for function.
    • Identify when an upper limb is/is not able to be facilitated and why.


    Who will Benefit

    This course is likely to appeal to qualified therapy staff working with adults with acquired neurological damage who have a basic level of understanding of assessment from a 'normal movement' perspective.
