Course overview

This highly interactive MasterClass, designed for those with a solid grounding in spasticity assessment, treatment and management, digs deeply into complex management.

Promoting a whole-person approach throughout, you are invited to become a 'Spasticity Sherlock', and will examine complex cases in multi-disciplinary meeting-style group discussion.

The course delves deeply into physiology, assessment and goal setting, pharmacological and therapeutic management all unpicked through real-life examples. You will also gain insight into optimising transitioning across services, building a 'good' spasticity service, and future research trajectories.

'Our aim at the Spasticity Academy is to raise the level of care that people experiencing spasticity have access to across the country, reducing inequalities and ensuring those providing spasticity services can do so with confidence, through a multidisciplinary approach.'

Dr Rachel Farrell, head Faculty

'Interesting and varied lectures, extremely useful to see how spasticity is managed from different perspectives.'

'I really enjoyed this course. It reinforced to me how important the patients' wishes and desires are and they are at the centre of the discussion and plans regarding their spasticity. Importance of ensuring we treat each patient holistically and within their personal context.'

'I think this course has very well covered the broad aspects of spasticity; not just the condition itself but also the wide range of health professionals required and their roles, functions and responsibilities'.
