Graded Motor Imagery Course is organized by National Centre of Rehabilitation Education (NCORE) and will be held from Oct 23 - 24, 2019 at London Road Community Hospital, Derby, England, United Kingdom. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 12 CPD hours. Who will Benefit: This course is open to health professionals involved in pain and stress management. Introduction: For the first time, effective treatment for difficult neuropathic pain states (e.g. CRPS) is now available. The Graded Motor Imagery (GMI) course provides the most up to date basic sciences, clinical trials, and clinical use of the programme. The course is a series of lectures, practical sessions and clinical applications. The term 'graded motor imagery' broadly means that in rehabilitation the focus is placed on synaptic exercise and health and is delivered in a graded fashion. The exercising of synapses assumes that the brain is changeable and easily adaptable and gives hope to people with difficult pain states. It involves the use of computers, flashcards, imagined movements and mirror visual feedback. Evidence for the use of GMI comes from basic sciences (neuroscience) and clinical trials. It can offer substantial improvements in pain and disability in complex regional pain syndrome and phantom limb pain and anecdotally, the GMI programme, or parts of it may offer improvements in a range of chronic pain states such as brachial plexus lesions and osteoarthritis. Learning Outcomes: At the end of the courses, participants will have: • Knowledge of the neuromatrix paradigm and how the brain changes in pain. • An awareness of graded exposure and its application to pain neurosignatures. • Practical knowledge and skills of the Graded Motor Imagery 'process' - including left/right body discrimination, implicit and explicit motor imagery and mirror therapy. • Some associated educational techniques.

Evaluation of Social Interaction (ESI) is organized by National Centre of Rehabilitation Education (NCORE) and will be held from Nov 18 - 20, 2019 at London Road Community Hospital, Derby, England, United Kingdom. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16.5 CPD hours. Introduction: This 3 day training workshop provides critical information related to the theoretical basis of the Evaluation of Social Interaction (ESI), as well as experiential learning of administering and scoring ESI evaluations. Participants obtain valuable, hands-on information regarding occupation-based assessment and intervention, as well as viewing and scoring videotaped and live ESI observations during the course. Rater calibration is required following the 3 day course. Potential ESI raterâ€™s must complete 10 live observations after the course and submit this data for rater calibration. Rater calibration allows each ratersâ€™ severity to be determined and whether or not he or she is scoring the ESI in a reliable manner. ESI is a relatively new and dynamic observational instrument used by occupational therapists to evaluate a personâ€™s quality of social interaction during natural social exchanges with typical social partners. It can be used with any person of any age with or without a disability where the person has difficulties with social interactions. It can help the occupational therapist answer the following questions: • What is this person's quality of social interaction? (a criterion-referenced interpretation) • How does the quality of this personâ€™s social interaction compare with healthy, well persons of the same age? ( a norm-referenced interpretation) • Which social interaction performance skills are most impacting this persons' occupational performance? • What is the best focus of planned intervention intended to improve quality of social interaction? • Has there been a change in this persons' quality of social interaction performance since the last ESI evaluation? The Evaluation of Social Interaction (ESI) provides a tool that: • Can be used to evaluate persons with any level of social interaction • Is standardized on persons 2 years of age through older adulthood. • Is based on criterion based scoring, and both criterion, and norm-based interpretation • Is developed and standardized using Rasch measurement methods • Has strong evidence for internal scale validity and reliability. After taking an ESI training course, participants have often commented that they have finally found their niche, their unique occupational-based role, within the rehabilitation team. With the new skills and insights they developed during the course their confidence is enhance, and they are more capable and proactive advocates for occupational therapy and the use of occupation as both a means and an end when providing occupational therapy services.
