The Current Status and Future of Hip Replacement and Hip Resurfacing - by Mr Ronan Treacy 

Total hip replacement has been one of the most successful interventions of the last fifty years. In many respects the procedure has become a victim of its own success as most implants give a greater than 90% chance of near normal function in ten years. Multiple fixation methods have been developed and, in an attempt to improve bearing wear and longevity, newer bearing surfaces have been introduced; often with unintended and unwanted consequences.
 
This talk will outline the history and development of key implants, their merits and drawbacks and it will also take a glimpse at the future, where the perfect implant will be positioned precisely, restoring natural hip function with minimal disruption to the business and social life of the recipient; or are we dreaming?!

A Simplified Approach to Diagnosis and Management of Common Knee Problems by Mr Dominic Spicer

When presented with a painful knee - an accurate diagnosis is half the battle . However - even in 2017, finding a cause seems in many cases to either take multiple visits or unnecessary and often expensive investigations - some of which end up being replicated. This talk aims to cover the more common problems and present a simple algorithm for getting an answer - cost effectively - and discusses the rationale behind some of the 'solutions'.

Sports Injuries of the Hand and Wrist by Mr Sam Gidwani

The hand and wrist are prone to injury from numerous sporting activities. This talk will aim to provide an overview of the commonest injuries sustained by sportsmen and women, whether elite athletes or occasional participants. I will also provide a framework for the assessment of patients with wrist pain following sporting injury, guidance on when to refer for imaging and a summary of current gold standard treatment.

• An overview of the commonest sports injuries
• Radial and ulnar sided wrist pain following injury
• Percutaneous scaphoid fracture fixation
• Tips on examination of the wrist

When Runners Feet Go Wrong by Mr Sam Singh

The popularity of running means we see a whole spectrum of conditions now that we rarely used to see before. Are you confused with whether condition could be synovitis, bursitis, neuroma or a plantar plate problem? Or why is the big toe so sore? These are the types of conditions we will cover helping to you answer and treat your patients more effectively.

Assessment and Management of Common Shoulder Problems by Mr Adel Tavakkolizadeh

Shoulder pathologies are common but the complex anatomy can make clinical assessment difficult. This overview will cover the common shoulder conditions and provides an approach to a quick and systematic assessment of the joint and formulation of an appropriate management plan. My talk will focus on conditions seen regularly by physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors.

Red Flags for Spinal Surgery by Mr Bahram Fakouri

The adult spine consists of 26 vertebrae and 23 intervertebral discs. Four out of five adults experience some type of back pain during their lifetime. Most of the time, the pain along our spine is of benign nature and can be managed conservatively, but in rare cases the underlying spinal condition requires an urgent surgical intervention. The objectives of this talk is to give an overview of several spinal pathologies that are usually managed by an operation.

  • Introduction to red flags and spine,
  • symptoms and treatment of caudal equina,
  • symptoms, diagnosis and management of spinal infection and spinal tumours


Ankle Pain: Diagnosis and Treatment Options by Mr Martin Klinke

The ankle joint links the lower limb to the foot and has to provide stability as well as sufficient flexibility to allow undisturbed propulsion. An injury to the ankle can have significant effect on our gait but it is not always only the ankle joint that is the cause of persistent pain in the hindfoot. There is a multitude of pathologies that can be responsible for recurrent or persistent discomfort and these may limit patient's activities. The ankle interacts with the hindfoot joints and the soft tissue structures around these joints are of greatest relevance to allow full function of the foot. The sprained ankle is the most common injury to the body but recovery is not always as straight forward as we wish. Mr Martin Klinke will discuss common ankle and hindfoot pathologies but also present less frequent but relevant injuries that one needs to recognise and treat appropriately.

111748| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| Chinese Scalp Acupuncture by Dr. Tian-Jun Wang - Peterborough - October 2017|

Scalp Acupuncture is one of the modern microsystem acupuncture techniques which combines Chinese acupuncture needling methods with western medical knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology and particularly the elementary functional neuroanatomy about representative areas of the cerebral cortex.

The workshop will introduce the origin and development of scalp acupuncture, the location of stimulation areas and indications, the manipulations and cautions of scalp acupuncture and its clinical applications.

The practical interactive workshop will enable the participants to learn how to integrate scalp acupuncture into their current clinical practice, gaining an insight into both the theoretical and practical basis for the integration of scalp acupuncture therapy alongside their own professional discipline.

111747| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course - Surrey - July 2017|

AACP Foundation Acupuncture Course

This course is divided equally between direct contact time and self-directed learning. It is designed to offer you a level of knowledge, skill and understanding that will allow you to practice acupuncture in a safe and appropriate manner, in a clinical setting.

Tailor-made for Physiotherapists, 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).

You will be encouraged to critically evaluate your own clinical practice and where appropriate, challenge the current evidence base. This course is designed to provide you 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).

- attend all 6 days of the course

- 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).

You will also benefit from one year FREE membership with the AACP.

Previous delegates have said:

I found the course really eye opening and refreshing to be taught such a skill and encouraged to actually make my own judgements about it based on a variety of sources instead of told why I should believe what someone else is saying.

I think the course itself is a credit to the AACP as an organisation and I am really glad I had the opportunity to benefit from the tutors personal experience and viewpoint as a teacher. I feel really quite lucky!

Brochure Short Course Lean Six Sigma Green Belt

Lean and Six Sigma are quality improvement methodologies structured to reduce waste and product or service failure rates to a negligible level. Six Sigma companies typically spend less than five percent of their revenues addressing and repairing quality problems. The Six Sigma process encompasses all aspects of a business; including management, service delivery, and design, production and customer satisfaction. As a philosophy, Six Sigma drives business culture and requires a nearly flawless execution of key processes, making Six Sigma a high standard for companies and individuals to achieve. By reducing process variation, Six Sigma frees an organization to focus on improving process capability. As sigma levels increase, the cost of poor quality decreases and profitability increases. This is why Six Sigma is highly associated with the delivery of consistent, world-class quality.

The Objective of the Course is to give participants an overview of the Six Sigma and Lean concepts and tools, including Six Sigma deployment practices, project development, and the DMAIC problem-solving approach. Once you've completed this program, you'll be ready to successfully participate in a Lean Six Sigma team.

111713| University of Sheffield| Sacred Texts and Sources for Religious Literacy|

This unit considers how society imagines and constructs the world in the context of societies seeking to find an idea of a common purpose, or a method for achieving it. Participants will:

  • explore how public discourses resort to consumerist alternatives and/or those found in radical orthodoxy or Islamism.
  • Analyse emerging literatures which explore the possibilities and challenges of engagement using alternative logics
  • explore how sacred texts inform and challenge established discourses and more recent alternatives.
  • evaluate sources expressive of wider ideas of belief and spirituality, reflecting the informal, consumerist landscape.

This unit will allow participants explore the specific questions of how leadership is described in principal Sacred Texts and Sources; encourage and direct participants to evaluate and critically assess how sacred sources resonate, contrast and underpin and lead to dissonances for leadership theories and practice and equip participants to develop their own interpretations, practical approaches and applications—via action research—of how key leadership themes in their own practice are informed or contrasted with sacred texts and other sources of public interaction. Example themes include workplace interactrions; attitudes to workload; workplace ethics.

 

This module represents one unit of the Leadership, Religion and Society programme, a course that has been carefully designed to enable students to develop knowledge of key aspects of religious interaction in the public sphere, including the historical relationship between religion, leadership and power, issues related to diversity, equality and plurality, the boundaries between public and private, the understanding of the responsibilities of religious freedom, gender, identity and democracy and participation. It also addresses the reality that Western societies are becoming increasingly religiously diverse. The programme will engage students in contemporary areas of religious debate and research which will offer a direct impact on their professional practice. Research has suggested that there is an opportunity to enhance the quality of conversation about religion and belief in the public realm. A lack of expertise in this area leaves front lines service providers at a disadvantage when managing issues related to religion and belief in the diverse publics which they engage with.

The course has been designed mindful of the needs of its constituents and draws on strong research expertise in the relevant areas. There are no other programmes of this kind in the UK. The course will be of interest to a wide range of professional groups, including those working in law and criminal justice, and health and social care, as well as local government employees (working at national and local levels), educational professionals, and corporate and professional organisations involved in community projects and individuals who deal with a broad spectrum of the public in their everyday professional activities.

 

Cost: Standartd Arts and Humanities postgraduate fee, pro-rata as required.


Duration and modes of study: Two residential Study Schools, which will consist of 40 hours of Lectures, Seminars, Tutorials. Teaching elements include Directed Reading, Seminars, Lectures, Action Research, Peer Group Work as well as independent study.

111712| University of Sheffield| Interdisciplinary Imaginations of Religion, Belief and Leadership|

This unit will critically map a wide range of contemporary conceptions of religion and belief deployed in the workplace. Analysis of religion and belief is rapidly emerging across academic disciplines outside of Theology and Religious Studies, through such themes as diversity, equality and plurality, public-private boundaries, religious freedom, democracy and participation, gender and identity politics. Participants will become meta-critics of the narratives that are deployed about religion and belief. In the light of recent national and international equalities and human rights legislation participants will evaluate the relative merits of differing stances towards religion and belief identities in public life.

The aim of this module is to:

  • equip participants with a detailed understanding of the global religion and belief landscape, and trends within it, as a basis for understanding the employee and service user environments of work places and the public sphere
  • provide participants with critical knowledge of the suite of ideas in currency across a range of disciplines for understanding and critiquing the categories of ‘religion’, ‘belief’, ‘spirituality’ and ‘religion and belief’
  • analyse how different academic disciplines—such as theology, religious studies, politics, sociology, anthropology, psychology and geography—have interpreted religion and shape current imaginations of it within public discourse and leaderships.

111711| University of Sheffield| Contemporary Challenges of Religion in Professions and Practice|

The unit arises from viewing Western societies as increasingly religiously complex, where equalities and human rights laws and guidance require engagement with diverse service providers and users. Yet public discourse and professional practices have been dominated by post-religious assumptions which impede the quality of conversation and practice. Participants will explore the ways in which religious diversity in society is encountered and engaged in public professions, and what questions and challenges this poses for their practice: what is the real religious landscape of service users? This will allow participants to re-evaluate their own professional frameworks and paradigms.

Participants will:

  • interpret and critique the discourses on religion and belief that revolve around risks, controversies and crises, usually associated with sex, gender, money and violence
  • develop knowledge and skills to identify principles and practices underlying a range of legal, policy and regulatory guidelines relating to religion and belief, and to apply them in their own leadership setting
  • analyse and interpret the possible practical ways of engaging effectively with the religion and belief practices of colleagues and service users, drawing on participants’ experience.

111710| University of Sheffield| Leadership and Religion in Society: Past, Present and Future|

This unit introduces the historical relationships between religion, leadership and power, which are used as a basis for interpreting employment leadership contexts in western culture. The history of European church-state reformation settlements will be compared with geo-political shifts in settlement between sacred and secular, migration and increasing globalization. The shift to identity politics where religion & belief gain new significance will be analysed. Participants will be equipped to both learn and speak of the place of religion in the public realm by developing critical and interpretative skills to consider the options service providers have in responding to religion and belief identities.

The unit sets out the key contexts and discourses through which religion and belief appear in contemporary public thought and leadership theories. It enables participants to identify why religion and belief are issues for them in the first place, how this is rooted historically and philosophically, and what risks and opportunities are presented.

Participants will:

  • gain an understanding of the Reformation as a point in European history when relations between church and state were being recast in a settlement which has persisted, and evolved, through to the current day in relation to geo-political settlements.
  • consider how this made way for philosophical challenges which themselves opened up new ways of thinking about religion in society which continue to underpin contemporary perspectives and assumptions
  • explore how past perspectives contribute to and sometimes obstruct ways of engaging well with contemporary religion and belief, and how to address them; and evaluate how inherited assumptions of secularity inhibit the ability of leaders to perceive religion and belief as relevant.

See what previous delegates have said about this course:

I attended the "Anatomy for Acupuncture with 3D software? at Keele University Anatomy Department. The lecturers were very knowledgeable and there was lots of practical time with the cadaverous material and needles, well worth the cost and the travel time - I would thoroughly recommend this course and all physios would benefit from an update of real anatomy.

-Damaris Eliot

I would just like to say what a brilliant course I went on on Saturday, the Anatomy for Acupuncture at Keele university with John Hobbs and Luke from the anatomy department. It was one of the most useful courses I have been on for a long time and, although a more expensive, was definitely worth it. Should definitely be run again. To be able to see the human anatomy on cadavers and look at key points related to it was brilliant. Thank you

-Helen Nash

The course was fantastic, great tutors, so interesting again (after 30 years!) and of course with all that clinical experience, it was a great reminder of the wonders of anatomy! I'd highly recommend it to all. Thank you to Jon and Luke for a superb day.
