This will be a comprehensive course focusing on the anatomy of the spine and upper limb. Delivered primarily using human cadavers to provide a hands on, visual approach which will be supplemented by lectures, the delegate will benefit from a journey through the upper limb and spine of the human body. The course is to be held at the Human Anatomy Resource Centre, University of Liverpool.
This event aims to equip clinicians with the anatomical knowledge of the spine and upper limb required to effectively treat various pathologies in clinical practice. The course content will concentrate on the spine: vertebral column, spinal ligaments, spinal cord and meninges. In addition, the upper limb will be examined to include: the musculature of the shoulder, upper arm, forearm and hand, and the skeleton, nerves and arteries of this region. To be delivered through lectures and prosections.

The treatment of stroke in the UK has changed in recent years with advances in thrombolysis and changing pathways to identify potential strokes and treat within the 3-hour window for maximum recovery. This hasn’t reduced the need for orthotic intervention at all stages of recovery post stroke. This course will give greater understanding of the condition, treatment and provide tools for clinicians to utilise in their everyday practice to improve the outcome for patients.

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.
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.

BAPO are pleased to announce a brand new two-day course which offers a unique experience through practical dissection of the lower limb. Delegates will work in pairs under the careful guidance of academic staff at the Human Anatomy Resource Centre, University of Liverpool to explore the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and nervous system of the lower limb.
This event aims to equip clinicians with the knowledge of lower limb anatomy required to effectively treat various pathologies in clinical practice.
In detail delegates will begin the day by attending a lecture delivered by a resident academic to refresh their lower limb knowledge and to learn basic dissection techniques. Following this delegates will be assigned to a lower limb which they will spend the following 2 days dissecting. A hands on dissection will allow a prolonged, layer by layer, study of the lower limb, allowing a much deeper and wider understanding of the anatomical relationships of the various structures. Delegates will be guided by experienced anatomists and will be free to view previously dissected lower limbs and models and anatomical software will also be available to help on the day.
