Spasticity Management – A Multidisciplinary Approach

Start: Feb 2, 2017 9:00:00 AM
End: Feb 3, 2017 4:45:00 PM

This two day course delivered by experts in the field will provide clinicians with an in-depth understanding of spasticity, the many interventions available to manage it and current research. The course will be of broad reaching interest – for all doctors, nurses and allied health professionals who regularly meet patients with spasticity. The course aims to assist clinicians with practical translation of the evidence into high quality clinical care for the individual. We will address assessment, physical and pharmacological management, botulinum toxin, intrathecal therapies and the importance of education and self-management. We will feature sessions regarding management of the acutely ill patient and what the future may hold in treating this complex symptom.

Fee: £190 including lunch and comprehensive delegate pack
