Botulinum toxin-A as an Adjunct to Paediatric Upper Extremity Rehabilitation

Date: Wednesday 15 May 2019 08:45 - Thursday 16 May 2019 13:00
          Venue: The Children’s Trust, Tadworth Court, Tadworth, KT20 5RU
Cost: £340 per delegate

 

Hosted by Dr Brian Hoare, a Paediatric Occupational Therapist at Monash Children’s Hospital, Melbourne, Australia, this 1.5-day training course will focus on the rationale for using Botulinum toxin-A (BoNT-A) as an adjunct to upper limb rehabilitation in children with neurological impairment. Using the latest evidence from scientific literature, combined with over 18 years clinical experience in the use of upper limb BoNT-A, day 1 of this course will assist clinicians to make sense of who, why and when to consider the use BoNT-A as an adjunct to evidence-based upper limb intervention. Day 2 will involve the practical application of this knowledge. Participants will be actively involved in the assessment of a range of children with upper limb muscle overactivity and in the formulation of treatment plans. Detailed course notes and reference material will be provided.

Early bird delegate places are available for this course when booked before Friday 1 February 2019.
