This is a 5-day advanced level course intended for graduate physiotherapists and occupational therapists working with neurological clients across the care continuum that wish to explore and improve their clinical assessment and treatment skills to optimize patient potential and achieve optimal function.

Utilizing a best practice approach the course participant will develop their theoretical knowledge base and clinical skills through the utilization of daily patient treatment sessions, patient demonstrations, lectures, guided discussion and practical human movement analysis sessions. The practical information will be taught utilizing a clinical reasoning framework and problem based approach.

Course participants complete a pre-course questionnaire so that the courses can be tailored towards their individual learning needs. The material is presented in a dynamic and interactive manner with plenty of opportunity for active discussion, peer learning and self-reflection.

General Course Objectives
By the end of the course, the participants should be able to:
-Demonstrate advanced clinical reasoning skills in the assessment, treatment and management of a range of neurological conditions.
-Critically evaluate and synthesize the theoretical evidence base for neurological rehabilitation and in depth movement analysis to develop individually tailored treatments.
-Demonstrate advanced handling skills (facilitation) 
-Utilize the IBITA Model of Bobath Clinical Practice

Specific Course Objectives
By the end of the course, the participants should be able to:

-Gain an in-depth understanding of “core stability” and its relationship with respect to the development of balance, postural control, and anticipatory postural adjustments 
-Understand the relationship between core stability and functional tasks such as locomotion, reach and grasp of the upper limb
-Integrate theoretical knowledge and clinical skill for the retraining of core stability 
-Critically review the current efficacy literature with respect to core stability and recovery following neurological injury.
-Review and discuss measurement of core stability
-Evaluate the success of his or her management programs using objective measures specific to core stability
