Implementing upper limb constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT)

November 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

About this event

Constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) is recommended in Australian (and other) stroke guidelines as an evidence-based therapy for arm recovery. Yet national audits show that only 12% of eligible Australian stroke survivors receive CIMT. Barriers to CIMT delivery include limited knowledge, skills, confidence, personnel and equipment.

This 3-part workshop will describe what should be included in a CIMT program [beyond a mitt], how to structure and progress training during a CIMT program, measure change and overcome common barriers to delivering CIMT particularly in public health settings.

TARGET AUDIENCE

Occupational therapists, physiotherapists and any health professional intending to offer a 2-3 week CIMT upper limb program to clients with stroke or brain injury.

Dates:Β Tues 22nd Nov, Tues 29th Nov & Tues 13th Dec 2022

Time: 18.00-22.00pm (13th Dec, 18.00-20.00)* – All times are in Sydney/ Australian Eastern DT.
