2 DAY MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
7-9 PM
MAXIMUM OF 50 PARTICIPANTS

Objectives

  • To provide an venue where clinicians can share techniques in treating musculoskeletal conditions and have the opportunity to practice them with the guidance of skilled clinicians (LBP, knee, shoulder, ankle, elbow pains)
  • To provide an avenue for networking of different clinicians for self growth in musculoskeletal and sports physical therapy
  • To appreciate how clinical reasoning is an important tool when evaluating and treating patients
  • To allow healthy open discussions on the case presented (LBP, elbow, neck etc) to challenge the clinician’s and participant’s reasoning and strategies in the management of the different musculoskeletal conditions

Format
There will be a musculoskeletal or sports condition that will be a presented and the lead therapist will conduct the evaluation part of the physical therapy session while educating the participants on the clinical reasoning process. The lead physical therapists will undergo the process of evaluation as described in the seminar and lecture. This will demonstrate to the participants, who have an interest in musculoskeletal rehabilitation, on how to improve their performance in clinics by providing an insight on the processes that skilled clinicians undergo in evaluating and treating patients with different musculoskeletal conditions. Cases that will be presented will be provided during the conclusion of the LBP seminar.

This is a great opportunity to see how having mentors can assist any clinician to become more effective and be guided accordingly. It will surely be an exciting set of sessions for anyone attending the mentorship program so make the most of this chance.

  1. Here is an important update from Mr. Ventura dated 11 Feb 2008:

    Dear Friends and Colleagues,

    Due to unforeseen events, the Low Back Pain seminar will be moved to April 19-20, 2008 instead of April 5-6, 2008. The venue will be set at the University of Santo Tomas, St. Martin de Porres Building (Medicine Building) at either the CME Auditorium or room 409. The other workshops and mentoring sessions will be held in room 209. I am still finding out the details and as soon as I receive any information, I will keep you all posted.

    My humblest apologies for any inconvenience.

    I am hopeful that several of our colleagues can attend the seminar because this bridges the gap of technology from the different continents of the world. (USA, Australia, Canada just to name some). Moreover, I will be attending a seminar of Prof. Pavel Kolar which the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago will be hosting on March 31, 2008. He is from Prague, Czechoslovakia teaching in Charles University and they have a different approach on neuromusculoskeletal rehabilitation especially for the low back. Some information/reference about Prof. Pavel Kolar can be seen from the link below. It will be an exciting event this coming April for our profession. Hope to see you all there and we can all learn from each other.
