    My assistant came to me today and asked what I thought of this course that she had been approved for funding to attend. She thought it might help to be more up to speed in clinic http://www.physiobob.com/physiotherapy-courses/fulldetails.aspx?iJobID=19996

    Here is a brief description of some of the course

    From my observations, patients almost always place an enormous amount of faith in their phyios, to the detriment of some of the (better) opinions of other professionals. I have nothing against physios, far from it....I wish I had their expertise in addition to my own.

    However, this course undermines a huge amount of the education that I do with physios to try and steer them away from this frankly outdated thought process. This course is advertised on a major physio website and will be the basis upon which physios base biomechanics decisions for years to come.

    Ever feel like you are urinating into the proverbial?

    BTW - I told her not to attend the course. I actually told her to pay attention in clinic a bit more. Come to think of it, I feel a bit guilty about that now, it was a tad brusque. (Since reading the David Mitchell book I have been having these internal monologues, of which this is ,obviously, not really an internal monologue as I have externalised it, albeit in the written form)
