This one and a half day workshop is designed specifically for overseas qualified physiotherapists planning to sit their Australia Physiotherapy Council neurological clinical examination for Australian registration. The course aims to provide attendees with a workable framework for the assessment of neurological patients, foster clinical reasoning so that problem lists can be generated and then targeted with appropriate treatment techniques. The course involves a clinical reasoning module and multiple practical based case studies. There is ample opportunity to ask questions, practice techniques, handling and transfers, and participants will be provided with a booklet outlining materials covered.
