MSK Foot & Ankle: Holistic Management and Treatment Strategies @ Jurys Inn East Midlands Airport
Jun 27 – Jun 28 all-day

The BAPO course “Assessment, Diagnosis and Treatment of Musculoskeletal Foot and Ankle Problems for Orthotists” was initially developed to support Orthotists working in the modern NHS. The NHS has streamlined services to reduce the strain on Orthopaedics, and AHP’s are increasingly relied upon to diagnose and treat Musculoskeletal conditions.

Evidence based treatment protocols were developed as part of a national MSK work stream in Scotland and published in Apr 2015. The course was created to support Orthotists treating MSK conditions in clinical practice, and ran from 2015-2018, inclusive.

Over this 4-year period, the course expanded and changed with the evidence, such that the content delivered between 2015-2016, was significantly different to that which was delivered between 2017-2018.

Upon reviewing the course content in detail, and at the request of many members of the profession; the course has been renamed and agreement received from OETT to consider reimbursement for those who did not attend the previous course, AND for those who attended the original course between 2015-2016.

KAFO “In a perfect world” @ Opcare Manchester
Jul 3 – Jul 4 all-day

The prescription of Knee Ankle Foot Orthoses is often seen as a challenge to those unable to build up a breadth and depth of experience, for many reasons.
The manufacture of KAFOs is also fraught with issues, where technical staff are often unable to accrue many aspects of the rationale behind prescription, design, and alignment, and the clinical staff struggle to communicate their needs.
Aims:
The course aims to address the problems associated with information exchange between professional groups within the industry, and the problems that are compounded through a lack of experience and confidence between both cohorts.
Our aim is to highlight simple steps in the patient journey and technical process that will save time, money and variability in practice and outcome in both clinical and manufacturing terms.
We will try to make up for the fact that we don’t live in a perfect world, so will present many tips and tricks to simply our collective practice.
