Lorraine and I are enjoying a busy 2014 with our young family, the busy clinic and Pilates studio as well as our University tutoring and lecturing roles. We are proud to be involved in higher education supporting upcoming students as well as fellow medical professionals and we’d like to share some of the details of what we have been up to.
Lorraine has been regularly lecturing as well as examining on the undergraduate physiotherapy programme as well as the prestigious Masters in Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy at UCD over the last number of months. Given such positive student feedback she has once again been asked to be a clinical tutor for Masters degree students on placement at the Mater hospital over the coming weeks. Lorraine will again this month present a lecture in lower limb biomechanics and injury management to the Irish College of General Practitioners.
I (Simon) have also been busy lecturing as well as examining on the UCD undergraduate physiotherapy programme as well as providing anatomy lectures to the Masters degree students. I have provided a workshop in myofascial pain syndrome to the undergraduate students which involved Dry Needling demonstrations.
We are very pleased to share with you news of the successful launch of our own continuing professional development course series. These 1-day courses provide training in advanced techniques in Medical Acupuncture & Dry Needling for fellow medical professionals. We have developed our courses with a modern approach making best use of internet technologies, improving delivery of theory content while maximising practical training time. Our first course in the series recently took place on the 26th of April in the clinic and was fully booked attracting very positive feedback from our attendees.
Our focus on continuing education is also directed right here in our clinic and studio. Our team of Chartered Physiotherapists and Pilates Instructors engage in further study each year to keep up to date with latest developments in our profession. We share our knowledge and experience between us at our weekly team meeting where we hold complex case discussions.
The strong emphasis on further education within our entire team ensures we can continue to offer you and all our clients the very best service for reducing pain, ensuring a speedy recovery and reducing your risk of recurrence of musculoskeletal injuries.
Until next time, in good health.
