What is the difference between the Face to Face workshops and the Zoom online workshops?2021-12-16T12:05:38+11:00

The main difference is that face to face workshops involve clinical sessions which include either people who have had a stroke (Upper Limb and Lower Limb workshops) or who have balance problems (Balance workshop).

Face to Face workshops: Upper Limb and Lower Limb workshops: 3 x 6-8 hour days. These workshops include stroke survivor participants on each of the 3 days. Their skills are analysed and trained each day by therapists. Progress made by the stroke survivors is measured and their dosage of practice is recorded. There is additional practical content where therapists practice evidence-based interventions in small groups: mirror therapy, CIMT, mental practice and electrical stimulation.

Balance workshop: Face to face 2 x 8 hour sessions. It includes clinical sessions with people with balance problems on each day. Practical content includes planning group circuit classes based on current evidence which has been shown to improve balance skills and reduce fall incidence.

Zoom online workshops: 2×4 hour sessions. These workshops do not include clinical sessions. However, these workshops do include video recordings of analysis and training of stroke survivors or people with balance difficulties for analysis and discussion of intervention strategies. There is reduced lecture content (no spasticity/contracture lecture and reduced CIMT content in the upper limb workshop).

Do you have a mailing list for future workshops?2021-12-16T12:03:41+11:00

What does it cost to attend a workshop?2021-12-16T11:57:16+11:00

Costs of each workshop depend on whether the workshop is face to face or presented remotely via zoom.

Some workshops are of different length (from 1 to 3 days) which will influence the cost.
