Event description

Description

In our mission to raise the bar of the health profession, join us for our not-for-profit 2019 Thought Leaders Series, "Shoulder Pain. Can't Seem to Shrug it Off?"

Now in it's fourth year, we are humbled to be able to provide our Life Ready symposiums to not only our staff, but to welcomed guests in the allied health industry and to be able to inspire, develop and nurture careers in physiotherapy.

The management of shoulder pain can be a challenge for physiotherapists and this year's symposium aims to improve our confidence in assessing and managing shoulder pain across different populations.

This October we are very fortunate to have two incredibly experienced, specialist physiotherapists, Dr Alison Thorpe and Dr Mary Magarey present and share their extensive knowledge in the area.

Friday Evening Symposium (6.00pm - 9.30pm)
Location: Perth City Farm
The night will being with drinks and canapés in the Art Room at Perth City Farm. The symposium will commence with a lecture presented by Dr Thorpe where she will share her extensive knowledge of rotator cuff related shoulder pain along with the findings from her PhD that explored the current evidence for shoulder surgery decision-making and the association of psychological factors with shoulder pain and the outcome after surgery.

After a brief intermission, with time enough for another beverage, Dr Magarey will discuss her approach to treating and managing shoulder pain. She will present the principles of dynamic management of the shoulder complex and how to assess and manage shoulder pain conditions with more confidence.


Saturday Workshop (11.00am - 5.00pm)
Location: Life Ready Physio + Pilates Bicton
Dr Magarey will further expand on the information discussed on Friday evening in a more intimate workshop setting. She will demonstrate a live patient assessment and initial management of two different shoulder pain conditions. This is a fantastic opportunity to see how an experienced, specialist physiotherapist approaches two different patient presentations. There will be discussion time during which Dr Magarey will further explore her clinical reasoning and management planning. Very limited tickets are available to this exclusive workshop.

PLEASE NOTE: Attending the Friday night symposium is a pre-requisite to attend the Saturday workshop.
