Event Description

This fast-paced, information-packed course is firmly based on the latest research as well as my own experience and is constantly updated. It demonstrates how our assessments and treatments are surrounded by uncertainty, and how they are not as specific or sensitive as many would like us to think. As distressing as this may sound I attempt to show how it can be an advantage and allows you to focus on what matters the most, the patient.
This course has been developed over a decade of experience and has taken two years to write, and is constantly changing as the evidence does. It has even lead to three small clinical trials of my own.
This course won’t promise you any quick fixes, miracle treatments, or fancy exercises, but it will give you the confidence that doing the simple things really well is both effective and evidence-based. It will also provide you with lots of practical tips that you can use in the clinic immediately.
Now in its sixth year, these widely acclaimed courses aim to be informative, informal, and fun. Presented in my own unique and occasionally controversial style as we explore the myths and misconceptions that surround physiotherapy and look for a simpler way forward.
