Workshop 1: 02 Oct 2015

WORKSHOP 1

 

Pre-Conference Workshop 1 (Half-day)

 

Title:       Neurophysiology of Walking in Young Children and Implications for Rehabilitation

Date:       2 October 2015 (Friday)

Time:      9:00 am to 1:00 pm

Venue:   Seminar Room 113-115, School of General Nursing, Queen Elizabeth Hospital,

                    Jordan, Kowloon

 

Speaker: Prof. Jaynie YANG

 

Prof. Yang is a professor in the Department of Physical Therapy, a member of the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute, and the Women and Children’s Health Research Institute at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB.  Her undergraduate training is in physical therapy (Queen’s University), with graduate training in the biomechanics of human walking (University of Waterloo), and post-doctoral training in the neuroscience of human walking (University of Alberta).  Her work bridges the gap in neuroscience of walking between quadrupeds and humans.  By using young children as participants, she showed that children are born with a sophisticated locomotor system similar to other mammals.  More recent work has examined motor learning during walking in young children, which is proving to be different from adults.  Her translational research focuses on optimizing retraining of walking after injuries to the nervous system, and understanding the neural mechanisms underlying training-induced changes. Current projects are on intensive leg training for children with perinatal stroke and training with the ReWalk exoskeleton for adults with severe spinal cord injury.

 

Description:

The workshop will summarize the neural control of walking in humans, focusing especially on the early stepping in infants.  It will then review current understanding of motor learning in children with emphasis on walking.  Finally, it will review animal work on the importance of activity in molding motor development, and the implications for children with early brain injury.

Speaker: Ms. Gail SOWDEN

 

Ms. Sowden was appointed as a Consultant Physiotherapist in 2005. She is passionate about improving the quality of care of people with musculoskeletal pain through the delivery of cost effective evidence based practice. She is the Allied Health Professions lead for pain and vocational rehabilitation across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent NHS Partnership Trust (UK) and influences national policy and practice through involvement in projects (e.g., standards, competencies) and membership of societies and committees (e.g., a British Pain Society Committee). In 2014 she became a member of the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network(AHSN) Integrated Care implementation team and an NIHR CLAHRC West Midlands Diffusion and Leadership Fellow. She has led service design and redesign projects resulting in the commissioning of new services and job roles. She provides leadership and clinical input into an award winning interdisciplinary chronic pain service and delivers postgraduate teaching as well as internationally regarded clinical skills training. She also works in a clinical trials unit (Keele University) where she is involved in world leading musculoskeletal research (e.g., STarTBack, IMPacT Back, BEEP, SWAP trials), is a co-applicant on three international research collaborations and publishes in peer reviewed journals (e.g. Lancet). She has recently become a NICE Fellow.

 

Description:

The workshop will provide a brief introduction to the assessment and management of the more distressed and disabled low back pain patients (STaRT Back high risk group).

 

Course Outline:

*The normal psychology of pain (cognitions, emotions and behaviours)

*Communication skills

  

*Conducting a biopsychosocial assessment

  

*Explaining chronic pain

 

 *Pain control versus meaningful living, with pain

  *Shifting the agenda from pain control to meaningful living
