Schedule and Other Important Information (if applicable)

The MDT approach is a comprehensive biopsychosocial classification system that provides clinicians with the tools necessary to accurately determine the most appropriate and effective course of treatment for their patients, subsequently improving their patient outcomes. Approximately 4 or 5 lumbar patients will be assessed and treated by the instructor during this course. Legitimate patients, displaying symptoms, are selected by the hosting clinic allowing you an opportunity to see the benefits of the MDT approach first-hand. Patients return for a follow-up appointment before the end of the course. This course includes a pre-requisite web-based training component and 3 days in-class training. The online component will take about 5 hours to complete. The schedule for the course is: Fri/ 3.00pm - 8.30pm, Sat/ 8.00am - 6.00pm, Sun/ 7.45am - 4.15pm.

Refreshments breaks items are provided for all 3 days. Lunch will be on your own. A course manual is included in the course fee.
