Event description

Description

Prechtl's Method of the Qualitative Assessment of General Movements
Basic Training and 1-day Refresher Course

2019 Courses

Did you know you can detect children at high risk of cerebral palsy in the first few months of life?

The Basic Course provides an introduction into Prechtl's Method on the Qualitative Assessment of General Movements in young infants. This new assessment method has shown its merit for the prenatal and postnatal evaluation of the integrity of the nervous system. Compelling evidence is now available that qualitative assessment of General Movements (GMs) at a very early age is the best predictor for cerebral palsy. This method has become a potent supplement to the traditional kind of neurological examination.

The Refresher Course will provide a 1-day additional intensive training in correct judgement. This training will deal with the details of the assessment, the proper terminology and technique as well as with the application of individual developmental trajectories. Participants should bring one case study. To attend the 1-day Refresher Course, participants must have attended and passed the Basic or Advanced GMs course.

Who should attend?

Medical specialists, neonatologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, registered nurses and other professionals in the field of infant neurology. Participation in the Advanced Course is possible only for individuals who successfully passed a Basic Training Course held under the auspices of the GM-Trust.
