Eligibility: Completion of Part A. This course focuses on the application of MDT to the cervical and thoracic spine. The course details the assessment, classification and management of patients with complaints of cervical and thoracic pain, related referred pain and functional limitations. This course includes two pre-requisite online training components and 2 live in-classroom days. The 1st online component you will complete by yourself at your own pace, the 2nd online component will be instructed live by the course instructor via Zoom on 13SEP(TUE) from 4.30pm until 9.00pm. The 3rd and 4th days will take place in the clinic and will focus heavily on patient demonstrations, procedures and clinical reasoning. Live Days: 17SEP (SAT) 8.00am - 5.00pm / 18SEP (SUN) 8.00am - 4.15pm. Until further notice, face masks will be required to be worn during the in-person course days. Course status: Confirmed.

The principles of MDT and how they apply in the context of the biopsychosocial framework of managing patients with cervical and thoracic pain and functional limitations will be a key focus. The participants will explore and extensively practice the MDT assessment, classification and management process through lectures, workshops, discussions, and patient demonstrations. The classifications of Derangement, Dysfunction and Postural syndromes in the cervical and thoracic spine are described in detail and appropriate management plans are discussed, with emphasis on the use of patient self-treatment procedures and education. Subgroups not fulfilling the criteria of the MDT syndromes are introduced and the basis for their differential diagnosis is outlined. Follow-up patient demonstrations will illustrate the reassessment process and allow participants to get a realistic feel and understanding of the impact of the MDT system on differing patient presentations over 2-3 treatment sessions.
