Advanced Bobath Programme: Management of the complex ABI patient - with emphasis on upper limb rehabilitation



This course facilitates participants to deepen their current understanding in aspects of neurological rehabilitation developing clinical skills in the context of evidence based practice.

Participants will develop their problem solving skills through guided workshops used to demonstrate clinical reasoning and practical treatment sessions aimed at enhancing patient care.

The course will provide participants with the opportunity to review current evidence critically and synthesise this within their clinical practice in the context of the Bobath Concept.

Specific handling skills will be developed through structured analysis.

Learning Outcomes

  • Demonstrate more advanced clinical reasoning skills in the assessment, treatment and management of neurological conditions
  • Critically evaluate and synthesise the theoretical evidence base for neurological rehabilitation and in depth movement analysis to develop individually tailored treatments.
