AMP’s Knowledge Project: Evidence, Insight and Management of Lumbo-Pelvic & Hip Disorders (Vancouver & Kelowna)

April 17 @ 8:00 am - May 15 @ 5:00 pm

Course Description:

The goal of this course is for you to successfully learn and transfer evidence into your clinical practice. This sounds easy, but it takes intention and strategy to do it successfully. Most weekend courses do not achieve a material change in practice. The short time frame and the lack of opportunity to practice new skills and knowledge in a clinical setting do not facilitate consolidation. That’s why we’ve revisioned a weekend course to take place over the course of a month with structured reflection, regular prompting, high frequency touch points, and a chance to, again and again, engage with the material and transfer it to your clinical practice while being supported by course facilitators.

We guarantee that this course will enhance your practice.

This 4 week blended online and in-person course will focus on improving clinician ability to treat patients presenting with lumbo-pelvic and hip disorders. Learn select high yield manual therapy skills that are supported by evidence and that you will use on a regular basis. More importantly, develop skills that will allow you to stage and classify patients to specific interventions and progress them through an exercise-based rehabilitation program that builds self-efficacy and resiliency. This course will also develop your communication and pedagogical strategies. You will gain insight and skills to effectively apply principles from pain sciences; which will maximize both patient outcomes and patient satisfaction.

Course features:

  • Blended online and in-person (Offered in Vancouver & Kelowna)
  • Morning coffee emails with prompts to explore, reflect, and focus on key topic areas.
  • Discussion boards to consolidate new ideas, explore nuance and application, and learn from peers and facilitators.
  • Two high signals in-person Sunday sessions.
  • Two live evening webinars.
  • A wealth of reference materials to dive into and explore during and after the course.

Upon conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Rule out serious conditions in the lumbar spine and pelvic region.
  • Classify low back pain patients to specific treatment groups and effectively stage patient recovery.
  • Apply selected thrust and non thrust manual therapy interventions proficiently.
  • Understand how to effectively prescribe and progress an exercise program for a patient presenting with lumbo, pelvic, or hip pain.
  • Demonstrate communication and pedagogical skills that will enable them to leverage pain science in a clinical setting.
  • Have adopted more than 3 habits to support reflective practice and continuous growth.
