This ACT course will be delivered online in a virtual environment via zoom. We will send registered attendees the link.
Children with abnormal muscle tone deserve prompt recognition and timely access to appropriate investigation and treatment, particularly with the availability of new therapies for neuromuscular conditions and cerebral palsy. In view of this, the BPNA approved the development of a new BPNA short-course on 'Tone Management in Children'.
The aim of the course is to improve recognition of initial symptoms of abnormal (high or low) tone and speed-up referral to appropriate specialists. In turn, the course aims to reduce the time to diagnosis and quicken provision of suitable treatment and/or therapy and improve the experience of the child/young person and family. Overall the course aims to improve the future outcomes for children with abnormal tone. We present a structured approach to investigation and management.
This is a 2-day course that will be delivered online in a virtual environment. You are expected to attend for the whole 2 days. It is recomended that you join the course via a laptop or computer. Please make sure that you join with a working microphone and video.
The virtual course will be delivered in exactly the same way as the face-to-face course.
