APTA has partnered with IFOMPT to provide this course. Please provide feedback so that we can continue offering these types of courses.

Anita will present the evidence from a risk advising grade perspective and the tidal wave of information that is reaching us. Take home messages for clinicians will include: how do I dose my manual therapy; how do I dose my exercise; what specific elements of exercise do I need; and what is our future direction in terms of running randomised trials and knowledge translation dissemination and uptake.
