Two Day Refresher CPD - Aims & Objectives
This two day course is designed for chartered physiotherapists who have previously undertaken a recognised acupuncture foundation course and wish to refresh their practical skills in the clinical treatment of both acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. Day one covers a review of the analgesic mechanisms of acupuncture, the health and safety implications including contraindication and precautions as well as discussion regarding the concept of the layering technique related to physiological mechanisms and clinical reasoning. Practical aspects of the day will cover the needling of the most common acupuncture points utilised in clinical practice. Day two will take the knowledge from day one and build on the understanding of prescriptions and treatment design. Incorporating the points revised during the previous session, treatment for common conditions both by pathology and region will be discussed in theory and then needled practically. There is also the option of an admissions assessment at the end of day two to enable attendees to attain AACP membership if required. The course delivers 14 hours approved CPD. Participants should be MCSP and HCPC registered and have already successfully undertaken a recognised acupuncture foundation course.
Cost: £190.00 AACP Members, £260.00 non-AACP members
