If you have a complex or longstanding health issue, it can help to see a practitioner with a special interest or additional training in your area. Every\n year Ethos Health staff spend time on structured professional development, usually as a student but sometimes as a teacher as well. Here’s what our\n team have been up to over the last few months:

\n

Elliot Meers:\n

\n

 Musculoskeletal Masterclass with Rod Whiteley (attended May 2018)

\n
    \n
  • A course aimed at providing sports physiotherapists with a better ability to provide higher quality care for their patients.
  • \n
  • This course focuses on translating the latest sports physiotherapy research to practice, with real-world patients ranging from weekend warriors to\n elite athletes.
  • \n
  • Masters of Sports Physiotherapy
  • \n
  • Elliot has elected to commence this degree through La Trobe University in 2018. It will provide him with specialised skills and knowledge in the area\n of sports physiotherapy. Post-graduate studies are an essential step in becoming an ‘APA Sports Physiotherapist,’ which leads to opportunities\n with professional sporting teams.
  • \n
\n

Bronwyn Vaughan:\n

\n

 Introduction to Dry Needling (attended March 2018)

\n
    \n
  • Dry Needling is a method of treatment commonly used by physiotherapists in Australia. It is not included in our undergraduate studies, meaning further\n training is required to learn specific techniques.
  • \n
  • Dry needling can be a great adjunct to treatment for muscular pain and spasm, in combination with a tailored exercise program that is specific to your\n injury.
  • \n
\n
    \n
  • APA Sports Level 1 (attended May 2018)
  • \n
  • This course is the first ‘official’ step on the Sports Physiotherapist career pathway.
  • \n
  • Bronwyn already has extensive sports physiotherapy experience, having recently finished a season as Physiotherapist for the Newcastle Jets W-League\n side, and several seasons with Wanderers Rugby and a number of representative teams.
  • \n
\n

Tim Schneider:\n

\n

 APA Sports Level 1 (taught May 2018)

\n
    \n
  • Tim was one of the highly experienced physiotherapists who had the opportunity to teach at the Sports Level 1 course this year.
  • \n
  • As part of the course, Tim shared his expertise in how physiotherapists can accurately diagnose and treat injuries of the knee, ankle, foot, hip, groin,\n spine and shoulder.
  • \n
\n

Connor Eyers:\n

\n

 Mobilisation of the Neuro-immune System (attended April 2018)

\n
    \n
  • In the body, the nervous system (our nerves) can contribute to the development of neck, back and shoulder pain. We often have patients present with\n ‘nerve pain,’ which may result from tension in the neural system.
  • \n
  • This course helps physiotherapists improve their skills in accurately diagnosing physical dysfunction of the nervous system (i.e. tension in the circuit)\n and how to utilise specific ‘neurodynamic’ techniques to reduce neural tension and relieve pain.
  • \n
\n

Benn West:\n

\n

 Research to Practice conference (attended April 2018)

\n
    \n
  • Every two years, Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) hosts the ‘Research to Practice’ conference.
  • \n
  • It is a challenging task to keep up with the latest evidence within health care. Knowing this, attending conferences such as this provides an excellent\n opportunity to improve knowledge across all areas that can be immediately transferred into everyday clinical practice. Each conference features\n international leaders in the Exercise Science, Exercise Physiology and Sports Science fields.
  • \n
  • Benn has led the development and delivery of our C-Fit program for people undergoing cancer treatment, and took the opportunity at the conference to\n learn more about the latest research on the impact of exercise on this population.
  • \n
\n

Nick Davies:\n

\n

 Functional Movement Screen (FMS) Level 1

\n
    \n
  • The FMS is a rating and ranking system that examines mobility (how flexible you are) and also your motor control (muscle strength\n and how well you can utilise this strength to perform a particular movement, such as a squat).
  • \n
  • A FMS screening is useful as part of a pre-employment system, pre-season athlete testing, and to bookend a work-based fitness challenge.
  • \n
\n

Dr Jane Watson:\n

\n

 Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA) conference

\n
    \n
  • Last week, Jane presented the results of our diabetes blitz program, sponsored by nib health funds, at the annual DAA conference in Sydney. this has\n led to interest from other research institutions in the program and its benefits.
  • \n
  • Jane also attended a number of conference presentations focused on obesity management, paediatric dietetics and community based healthy weight initiatives.
  • \n

Upskilling our people

by Ethos Health - 04 Jun 2018

If you have a complex or longstanding health issue, it can help to see a practitioner with a special interest or additional training in your area. Every year Ethos Health staff spend time on structured professional development, usually as a student but sometimes as a teacher as well. Here’s what our team have been up to over the last few months:
