Event description

Description

Presenters: Associate Professor Natasha Lannin and Laura Jolliffe.

This workshop will provide a brief refresher on the use of electrical stimulation (ES) in upper limb rehabilitation, before covering the research and protocols underpinning the recommended intervention approaches for using electrical stimulation:

- to prevent shoulder subluxation,

- to reduce upper limb post-stroke oedema,

- to strengthen very weak muscles to prepare for movement training,

- to embed occupational tasks into movement training early after stroke, and

- to use EMG-triggered electrical stimulation and trigger-switch protocols to maximise cortically initiated movements.

This workshop is considered to be of an intermediate level, however all clinicians are welcome (we will support those with only a basic understanding of ES through pre-reading and tutor support; please advise us on registration if you are new to using ES).

We use lectures, videos, small group and client-tutors to maximise application and clinical reasoning skills in use of electrical stimulation. Latest research evidence will be presented, along with demonstrations of protocols in daily clinical practice and an opportunity to practice with clients.

Registration fee includes notes, copies of protocols and all catering; please specify any dietry restrictions and allergies via email.

About the Presenters:

  • Natasha Lannin, is an Associate Professor at The Alfred Clinical School, La Trobe University and clinician researcher at Alfred Health. Natasha is a Master Trainer for Electrical Stimulation in Neurology, and regularly conducts workshops with clinicians both in Australia and internationally, integrating her knowledge of best-practice evidence, electrical stimulation and rehabilitation.
  • Laura Jolliffe is a NHMRC PhD scholar who is conducting research on use of clinical practice guidelines to maximise outcomes after stroke, and works at Alfred Health as a senior clinician and researcher. She brings her clinical expertise to these workshops, teaching how to increase clinical use of electrical stimulation in everyday clinical practice.
