Gait course starts today


If the auto-publish feature within this blogging software is working then this post is being published at exactly the same time as our first major clinical gait analysis course starts. I’m really excited by this which is being run in collaboration with colleagues from the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry and the Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

The course is based on previous courses that I helped develop whilst I was working in Melbourne with Kerr Graham and teaches the approach that I’ve called Impairment Focussed Interpretation. We’ve got over 40 delegates from 10 countries in Europe and South America.

One of the things I’m particularly pleased with is the electronic manual we’ve developed. To have a look at this you can click on the link in the previous sentence and navigate through it using the links in the drop down menus at the top of the page (note that you can click on all the menu items not just those at the “end” level). Most lectures have a slideshow and accompanying notes. Some of the manual is password protected so you won’t be able to see  all the content. If you want to do that you’ll have to register for the next course. To  be kept informed about when that is likely to be then register an interest by sending an e-mail using this link.  The more interest we have the sooner we are likely to put on the next course.

Note that you, or any of our delegates, are able to leave comments at the foot of any of the pages.

Final reminder is that we are now taking applications for our Masters Programme in Clinical Gait Analysis by part-time work-based distance learning. The programme starts in September. Most potential students will benefit from doing some preparatory work in advance and the sooner you enrol the sooner we can start supporting you in this.
