134710| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course - Oxford - September 2020|

This course is divided equally between direct contact time and self-directed learning. It is designed to offer participants a level of knowledge, skill and understanding that will allow them to practice acupuncture in a safe and appropriate manner, in a clinical setting. The course provides a Western medical approach to acupuncture - grounded in current research evidence rather than in traditional Chinese philosophical thinking. This course does not cover the traditional Chinese medical approach to acupuncture, except where Western scientific theory and evidence can be used to explain concepts of traditional Chinese medicine (e.g. fascial planes and meridians).

Participants will be encouraged to critically evaluate their own clinical practice and where appropriate, challenge the current evidence base. This course is designed to provide participants with a rationale for using acupuncture as an adjunctive treatment for the management of common musculoskeletal pain conditions. Topics covered include the laboratory and radiological research which is used to explain the mechanism of acupuncture analgesia; current evidence from acupuncture clinical trials research; and the non-specific "placebo" effects associated with acupuncture analgesia. In addition to needling classical acupuncture points, participants will be introduced to the concept of myofascial trigger points, and the use of acupuncture needling for pain associated with myofascial trigger points.

Students must:
- Have HCPC physiotherapy registration
- Have CSP membership
- Be able to practise acupuncture in a clinical setting between the course parts
- Give the tutor informed consent to receive repetitive needling (with particular regard to being or trying to become pregnant)
- Be able to treat three separate patients in a safe and legal environment for their case studies. Failure to do so may affect your professional HCPC registration. (see AACP website for safety guidelines)
- Attend all 6 days of the course

134707| University of Birmingham| Haemostasis and Thrombosis Training and Update|

This course will cover all aspects of Clinical and Laboratory Haemostasis and Thrombosis.

Course Overview

Maintenance of blood fluidity and patency of the vascular system is crucial for normal human physiology. The term ‘haemostasis’ refers to the normal response of the vessel to injury by forming a clot that serves to limit haemorrhage. Thrombosis is pathological clot formation that results when haemostasis is excessively activated in the absence of bleeding. Under normal physiological conditions there is a delicate equilibrium between the pathological states of hypercoagulability and hypocoagulability in the circulating blood. Both inherited and acquired disorders can result in either bleeding or thrombosis.  Thrombosis may occur in veins (venous thrombosis) or in arteries (arterial thrombosis). Venous thrombosis leads to congestion of the affected part of the body, while arterial thrombosis affects the blood supply and leads to damage of the tissue supplied by that artery (ischaemia and necrosis). Fragments of either an arterial or a venous thrombus can also break off as an embolus which can travel through the circulation and cause thromboembolism. Accurate clinical and laboratory diagnosis of these disorders is therefore not only critical for the prevention of significant morbidity and mortality but improves patient care and quality of life through prevention and treatment of future bleeding and thrombotic events. Our understanding of these physiological and pathophysiological conditions has also improved significantly over recent years. This has not only resulted in improved diagnosis but in the evolution of state of the art modern laboratory testing and therapies for both bleeding and thrombotic disorders.  As the subject is also rapidly and continually evolving, this course aims to continually give up to date training from established clinicians and scientists in the field.

  • Up-to-date physiology and pathophysiology of Haemostasis and Thrombosis
  • Comprehensive training in basic and advanced clinical and laboratory practice in Haemostasis and Thrombosis
  • Interactive state of the art Lectures from established clinicians and scientists in the field
  • FRCPath focussed
  • Case based data interpretation
  • Practical Demonstration of Haemostasis Assays


Learning outcomes

  • Understand the physiology and pathophysiology of all aspects of Haemostasis and Thrombosis
  • Understand the clinical and laboratory diagnosis of inherited and acquired disorders of Haemostasis and Thrombosis 
  • Understand state of the art laboratory testing for diagnosing and monitoring treatment of Bleeding or Thrombotic Disorders
  • Understand state of the art treatment strategies for either Bleeding or Thrombotic Disorders


Who is the course for?
It is aimed at SpRs preparing for the part 2 FRCPath examination but is also suitable for clinicians, scientists and biomedical scientists in academia, the NHS, pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies wishing to gain intensive training in Haemostasis and Thrombosis.

134651| University of Birmingham| Gene expression analysis by RNA-sequencing - extracting and interpreting meaningful data using online tools for beginners|

This course is designed primarily for bio-medical researchers and scientists who are interested in this technique but do not wish to learn bioinformatic analysis in detail (i.e. use of command line, programming languages).

Course Overview

  • fundamental principles of differential gene expression analysis by RNA-sequencing.
  • An overview of RNA-sequencing, experimental design, sample collection (wet lab techniques) as well as library preparation and sequencing will be taught.
  • introduction to the analysis pipeline, common problems and troubleshooting.
  • Examples of real data and a practical workshop in which course delegates will be able to carry out basic RNA-seq analysis using online tools on pre-defined data. Analysis will include differential gene expression and gene ontology analysis and how to interpret results.
  • Interpretation and further analysis of gene expression data will be discussed with practical examples. e. Further analysis and tools e.g. that are specific to different data sets will also be discussed to enable course delegates to continue their analysis beyond the course.

Please note that while this type of online analysis is suitable for small numbers of samples, larger and complicated datasets usually require bioinformatic analysis and use of command line. This course is intended for the biologist/clinician to get a greater understanding of all steps involved in experiments using RNA-seq.


Learning outcomes

This course aims to provide an introduction to gene expression analysis using RNA-sequencing. At the end of the course, the course delegates will:

  • Understand key steps in experimental design for gene expression studies and make appropriate choices for materials and analysis that are best suited to their needs.
  • Through the use of online tools, the course delegates will be able to get a basic analysis of their data and be able to interpret their results.
  • Will gain a deep understanding of how to communicate with bioinformaticians and understand the ways in which the data could be interrogated further.

 

Who is the course for?

This course is designed primarily for bio-medical researchers and scientists who are interested in this technique but do not wish to learn bioinformatic analysis in detail (i.e. use of command line, programming languages). They either need basic analysis and interpretation (using online tools), or have a bioinformatician working for them, but need to communicate their special needs to the bioinformatician.
