Schedule and Other Important Information (if applicable)

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. Indications for the use of clinician procedures will also be discussed and the procedures demonstrated and practiced. Subgroups not fulfilling the criteria of the MDT syndromes are introduced and the basis for their differential diagnosis is outlined.

Approximately4 or 5 legitimate patients, selected by the hosting clinic, will be assessed and treated by the instructor during this course. The patients will return for a follow-up appointment before the end of the course. This 26-hour course is a combination of a pre-requisite web-based training component and 3 days in-class training. The online component will take about 5 hours to complete. The tentative schedule for the live course is as follows: Fri 1:00pm - 9:00pm, Sat 8:15am - 6:00pm, Sun 7:45am - 3:30pm. The pre-requisite for this course is the completion of Part A. A manual covering the course material, is included in the cost of this courseLight refreshments will be provided during breaks.
