Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The 1-day training course will focus on the rationale for using Botulinum toxin-A (BoNT-A) as an adjunct to upper limb rehabilitation in children with neurological impairment.  Using the latest evidence from scientific literature, combined with 18 years clinical experience in the use of upper limb BoNT-A, this course will assist clinicians to make sense of who, why and when to consider the use BoNT-A as an adjunct to evidence-based upper limb intervention. Detailed course notes and reference material will be provided.

By undertaking this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the latest concepts and terminology for muscle overactivity in upper motor neurone disorders.
  • Understand the administration and mechanism of effect for BoNT-A.
  • Understand the data relating to safety and efficacy for the use of upper limb BoNT-A injections in children.
  • Understand possible adverse events following upper limb injection of BoNT-A.
  • Review upper limb anatomy and the impact of muscle overactivity following upper motor neurone disorders.
  • Gain confidence for the recommendation of specific upper limb muscles for injection of BoNT-A.
  • Understand the role of the therapist in upper limb spasticity management.
  • Gain confidence in who, how, why and when to recommend children for upper limb injection of BoNT-A.
  • Understand the aims of upper limb BoNT-A injection in children (function and symptom management).
  • Gain confidence in the timing, planning and implementation of evidence-based intervention following upper limb BoNT-A.
  • Objectively evaluate outcomes pre and post upper limb BoNT-A injection.
