Excellence in Global Osteopathic and Functional Manual Medicine Education
ONLINE COURSES AND CPD - SCROLL BELOW FOR TOPICS
There are a range of topics - women's health, visceral, fluids and circulation, stomatognathic / TMJ / Voice, and also a section for midwives and doulas, where they can explore course options that highlight the type of hands on care that might be applicable for them in their context, and for them to gain an understanding of the osteopathic concepts in work with women, during pregnancy and for newborns. Access to these courses is open to all healthcare professionals and are to inform practice but are not meant to represent or imply that conditions or problems referred to can be solely managed by osteopaths. Osteopathy is a practice which uses hands on care as its primary modality, and can work effectively and proactively alongside many other healthcare practices and protocols for care. Osteopaths and other manual health care practitioners have various roles they can perform and this series of talks is to introduce, elaborate on, critically appraise and refine a range of clinical presentations, and the supporting evidence, for how hands on care may be relevant. Each practitioner retains their own professional responsibility (in the confines of their professional regulation) for the patients in their care, and the information in these courses is not a prescription for care, which always has to be adapted to the individual and their problem, pathology or co-morbidities and their aims for and informed consent to treatment.
