This new 4 course programme is an exploration of how to use digital communication technology for assessment and treatment of patients.
Delivery of physiotherapy via the Internet of Things (IoT) was always going be the future. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic there has had to be a step change in the speed of development and adoption of this way of delivering physiotherapy. To many of us this is a confusing and difficult change in the way we work. It can be confusing and frustrating but most importantly none of us was to reduce the effectiveness of our assessment or treatment sessions. Not many of us have ever had training in how to do this and that’s why Physioplus has teamed up with two of the experts to create this fantastic 4 course telehealth programme for you.
Michelle Cottrell and Trevor Russell are both teleheath experts and have multiple high profile publications investigating how telehalth and physiotherapy can work together in this unprecedented time and moving forwards into the future. In this programme Michelle and Trevor will focus on different aspects of telehealth including platform selection and related practical issues such as ethics, assessment and management.
This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.
The programme is made up of 4 courses which are shown below.
