Event description

Description

St James’ Physiotherapy department are delighted to welcome Daniel Treacy from the Stroke Ed team, based in Sydney, Australia. The Stroke Ed collaboration was established in 2011 and offers evidence-based workship to improve the skills, knowledge and practice of rehabilitation therapists, and influence the delivery of rehabilitation services to stroke survivors. This will be the first time the Stroke Ed team has presented in Ireland.

The 1000 Reps workshop aims to recommend strategies that can increase the dosage and intensity of practice in inpatient, outpatient and community rehabilitation settings. The workshop is relevant to diagnoses such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, amputation and hip fracture and will be of interest to physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, and nursing professionals. The majority of the examples and case studies used to illustrate the learning content are based on upper limb and lower limb practice. Evidence is reviewed for the effectiveness of extra practice, and strategies that have been shown to increase practice will be presented.

Intensity is a hot topic in rehabilitation - join us to learn more about how we can translate research into practice!

The workshop is divided into three content areas:

  • One-to-one practice under the direct supervision of a therapist.
  • Semi-supervised practice that takes place in the therapy area but is not under the direct supervision of a therapist.
  • Independent unsupervised practice that takes place outside of the therapy area and is not supervised by a therapist (i.e. on the hospital ward or at home).

For more information and learning outcomes, take a look at the StrokeEd website: http://strokeed.com/about-workshops/1000-reps-day/

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. The workshop manual will be sent electronically prior to the event - delegates will need to print this themselves if they require a paper copy.
