This course is open to Gunn IMS practitioners who:
1. Have completed Gunn IMS Parts I and II (either the iSTOP or UBC program)
2. Hold current registration to practise from their relevant regulatory college
3. Hold current malpractice insurance AND
4. Have practised IMS for at least 3 years
The objective of this course is to revise and expand on course participants’ knowledge, understanding and practice of Gunn IMS by reviewing relevant theory, research, and patient assessment/treatment skills.
To facilitate the review of clinical reasoning and treatment planning, we will invite local practitioners attending the course to present a patient from their caseload to be assessed and treated on the course by course instructors, as demonstration. Course participants who would like to have a patient considered for this role, should have already assessed the patient as being suitable for Gunn IMS. Treatment may or may not already have initiated. All informed consent procedures should have been completed. Should you have a suitable patient, please advise us at the time of your application so that we may contact you.
Needling techniques, including “at risk” areas, will be reviewed. Theory, clinical reasoning and safety aspects of Gunn IMS practice will be reviewed and discussed. Assessment skills will be reviewed in demonstration form on an actual patient(s) - initial treatment will be demonstrated and treatment planning will be discussed.
