Running a Course
Do you want to organise a Breathing Pattern Disorder study day where you work?
We are able to offer introductory or advanced study days at your place of work. Whilst all the courses are designed for physiotherapists they can include other qualified health professionals specialising in breathing pattern disorders and hyperventilation where appropriate and with the agreement of the course organiser and speakers. This would include osteopaths, specialist nurses and occupational therapists working in respiratory care.
We are able to offer other talks or sessions depending on your requirements and costs will be made available on request.
Introductory study day
Aimed at professionals who are new to assessing and treating people with breathing pattern disorders and hyperventilation and who are seeking to gain greater understanding and insight in what these conditions are and how they present. It will provide a theoretical background of the physiology behind symptoms as well as some practical skills in the assessment and treatment of the condition.
Advanced study day
Directed at professionals who are comfortable in their knowledge of breathing pattern disorders and hyperventilation and have experience in treating patients. It is more likely to be suited to band 6 or above physiotherapist depending on experience. It is appropriate for those who wish to update themselves, learn new treatment techniques and outcome measures whilst exploring additional management such as chronic cough and inspiratory muscle training. Case studies and practical group work will be included to share knowledge and practise skills.
Two-day weekend programme
This programme has been designed to incorporate both introductory and advanced study ay elements together. If you are considering this we would be happy to discuss this with your further.
Things to consider:
- If you would like two different groups of people for both days you need to make this very clear in your advertising.
- As per above explanations on introductory and advanced study days we do not recommend that the same people attend both days. It takes 4-6 months of working in the relevant clinical area to be able to put skills into practice after an introductory course. Ultimately it is up to the individual
- Funding for two courses is costly and with seven day working and limited funding for courses you may potentially limit those who are able to attend. We would recommend advertising for interest before confirming booking.
