Workshops at congress deliver content relevant to daily practice

Eight workshops were held over the three days at congress, each delivering content relevant to areas of clinical practice.

The first workshop held on the final day of congress was a practical session on clinical reasoning and is of interest to physiotherapists across all specialties. The workshop was led by Mark Jones, from Australia.

The workshop provided an overview of key clinical reasoning theory, including the Hypothesis Categories framework developed by Mark. How to make essential clinical judgments within a biopsychosocial approach to practice were highlighted, as well as common errors made in clinical reasoning, with suggested strategies to minimise these and improve and facilitate clinical reasoning. Much of the presentation was given to psychosocial focused reasoning and understanding the person behind the patient.

Also held on Sunday was the workshop on Shoulder: Theory and practice by Jeremy Lewis, from the UK. Here the importance of taking a biopsychosocial approach for the assessment and management of musculoskeletal conditions involving the shoulder region was emphasised. The workshop also examined the complex relationships between the shoulder and body biomechanics, along with pain science, lifestyle, patient psychosocial factors, beliefs and expectations. It also highlighted best practice, with a look at the latest research evidence for managing rotator cuff related shoulder pain.
