CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
AN UPDATE REGARDING THE NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
Gold Horizontal Line 60 x 4
As the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 to be a global pandemic on 11 March, our primary concern is the health and welfare of our members and seminar attendees. For this reason we must postpone our upcoming Intensives 3 and 4:

(a) Intensive 3 - Advanced Spinal Diagnosis (Lumbopelvic) on April 4
(b) Intensive 4 - Advanced Spinal Diagnosis (Cervical) on May 9


We would like to reassure you we are fully committed to our upcoming CTCP events, and we will return to our proposed schedule as soon as it is safe to do so. We shall continue to carefully monitor information and advisories from the WHO and NSW Health, and consult with the Marriott Courtyard on what the appropriate sanitary, health and other procedures should be to maintain a healthy event.

CDI apologises for any inconvenience that you have incurred.

If you have already registered for one of the above events then we shall contact you directly to discuss your options.
  • CTCP INTENSIVE 1 - MASTERING THE FIRST TWO CONSULTATIONS

    Presented by: DR ANTHONY D. NICHOLSON
    CPD awarded: 7.5 hours
    Gold Horizontal Line 60 x 4
    Do you carefully construct your first two clinical encounters to get the best possible outcome for your patients? Do you explain how your treatment works using words and concepts that are meaningful to your patients? Learn why a neuroscience approach to your patient communication is not only more effective, but is the new best-practice.

    What words and ideas do you use when telling a patient what’s 'wrong' with them? We shall look at how to move from an older 'mechanical' model to a new 'brain-based neuroscience approach' that patients can instantly relate to. From 'damaged parts' to 'brain plasticity'. The words, concepts and explanations that you use can either help or hinder. You must de-educate before you can re-educate.

    The goal of Intensive 2 is to renew your clarity about what you do in everyday practice, no matter what technique you use or your specialisation.

    Every day we see spines that are in a state of dysfunction and pain, and our job is to work out why. But do we ever stop to ask what has already failed in a patient's nervous system when they suffer a tissue injury (such as a disc lesion or facet synovitis)? By the end of the program your appreciation of daily practice will be very different. You'll see how manipulation can influence spinal stability, posture, balance, autonomic function, pain perception, visual acuity and even cognition. We will assemble all of this into a framework for applying neuroscience in a meaningful way to daily practice.

    CPD awarded: 10.5 hours
    (Includes 7.5 hrs from the live event and 3 hrs from the associated online MRI eLearning course)
    Gold Horizontal Line 60 x 4
    The Advanced Spinal Diagnosis Intensive will help you to answer some of the key frustrations and contradictions experienced by chiropractors. Would you like greater certainty when recommending care to your patients? Have you considered how much your tissue diagnosis really matters when it comes to the science of valid care giving? Would you like to know which clinical tests are truly robust and can be relied upon to help you make a firm diagnosis? Would you like to know how to vary your adjustments and treatment applications in accordance with the tissue diagnosis that you have made? How does an adjustment help a patient who has torn the connective tissue of an intervertebral disc? Can sacroiliac joints really 'go out of alignment'? If not, then what actually happens to them? Are you comfortable explaining what you do to another health care professional using the language of science and free from jargon?

    This Intensive will give you everything you need to understand MR imaging at a whole new level. Prior to the event you will undertake an online eLearning Episode that will equip you with the fundamentals of MRI interpretation. Even better, this online course will earn you 3 hours of accredited CPD.

  • CTCP INTENSIVE 4 - ADVANCED SPINAL DIAGNOSIS (CERVICAL)
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

    This Intensive extends upon the information presented in Intensive 3 (Lumbopelvic). The cervical spine often attracts greater concern and scrutiny than other spinal regions, particularly when the possibility of neck manipulation is raised. This Module will help you to understand the challenges of accurate diagnosis and decision-making in this complex area.

    As you will learn, most patients with cervical disc pain present with widespread symptoms that do not look like radiculopathy. Many disc lesions simply manifest as scapula, axilla or chest pain. Some express disc pain through repeated bouts of torticollis over many years. Would you recognise this? Even in cases with nerve root involvement the patient often complains of non-dermatomal symptoms, which are frequently misdiagnosed as a shoulder complaint (such as a 'supraspinatus tendonitis'). It is your job to make the diagnosis and triage accordingly.

    Whiplash patients often face an uncertain future of pain and neurological disability. But what are the mechanisms of this? Why do some individuals experience dizziness, cognitive dysfunction, visual disturbances and tinnitus? What role might the facet joints, multifidus muscles and vestibular system play in such a diverse set of symptoms?

    Gold Horizontal Line 60 x 4
    This Intensive will look at important aspects of the thoracic region. We shall tackle the challenge of chest pain, and develop a clinical reasoning process for excluding pathology. We will also investigate thoracic outlet syndrome, and appreciate the contemporary understanding of this disorder. While less common than other regions of the spine, disc lesions in the thoracic area are a potentially serious cause of cord compression. Are you confident that you could detect the presence of spinal cord compression from your clinical examination? How about a compression fracture? Finally, we will delve into the topic of scoliosis and understand the role of the brain in spinal curvature - and what you can do about it.
  • CTCP INTENSIVE 6 - HEADACHE DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    Presented by: DR MATTHEW D. LONG
    CPD awarded: 7.5 hours
    Gold Horizontal Line 60 x 4
    Intensive 6 will take your understanding of headache, and in particular the disease migraine, to a whole new level. Learn about the myriad of neurological signs and symptoms that accompany this condition and how you can play a front-line role in patient management. This Intensive delves even more deeply into the neurology of chiropractic to enhance your clinical thinking and equip you with tools of assessment.

  • CTCP INTENSIVE 7 - DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT OF BALANCE DISORDERS
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    Presented by: DR ANTHONY D. NICHOLSON
    CPD awarded: 7.5 hours
    Gold Horizontal Line 60 x 4
    Intensive 7 focuses upon the neurology of balance and postural control. We will refine your skills in assessing and managing patients with dizziness, vertigo and a range of other balance disorders. Learn how the extraordinary proprioceptive capacity of the cervical spine plays a central role in human stability and why many ongoing spinal problems could be viewed as a subtle expression of a balance disorder.

    Anxiety, visual disturbances, muscle tension, even scoliosis, can all be the product of a struggling balance system. But a static X-ray does not do justice to the exquisite control necessary to guide 24 movable vertebrae without injury. So how is this done? And what happens when it all goes wrong?

  • CTCP INTENSIVE 8 - PROFESSIONAL COMMUNICATION
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    Presented by: DR MATTHEW D. LONG
    CPD awarded: 7.5 hours
    Gold Horizontal Line 60 x 4
    Intensive 8 is about building the referral relationships that form the cornerstone of professional practice. Being a professional involves more than simply doing a good job. You must be able to communicate the nature of what you are doing, and the benefits of your unique skills, if you want to gain greater influence. This Intensive draws upon the science of communication to add an important dimension to your professional development and personal effectiveness.
