We are delighted to have Dr Beatriz IR de Oliveira present an anatomy course focussing on Upper and Lower limbs. Following her successful course in 2017 many members have requested a repeat course. Dr Beatriz IR de Oliveira is a physiotherapist and lecturer at the School of Physiotherapy and Exercise Science at Curtin University. This course involves the study of the various structures of the upper limbs and their role in facilitating life’s many functions. Several strategies will be implemented to teach and encourage Occupational Therapists to apply their knowledge in palpatory anatomy,  surface anatomy, postural analysis and clinical anatomy of the upper and lower limbs.

The course will be divided into four sessions:

Session (module) 1:  Palpatory anatomy: bony landmarks of the upper and lower limbs

–          Review main bony landmarks of the upper limb

–          Identify main bony landmarks of the upper and lower limbs through palpatory anatomy

–            Understand clinical relevance of bony landmarks

Session (module) 2:  Surface anatomy: muscles of the upper and lower limbs

–          Review superficial muscles of the upper and lower limbs

–          Analyse surface anatomy and function of muscles of the upper and lower limbs

Session (module) 3:  Postural analysis: refresher

–            Practice postural analysis via the identification of landmarks and symmetry in the frontal and

sagittal planes

–          Analyse scapulohumeral rhythm

Session (module) 4:  Clinical anatomy: upper limb

–          Review courses of major peripheral nerves arising from the brachial plexus

–          Review upper limb clinical presentations

–            Utilise anatomical knowledge to apply principles of clinical measurement

Palpatory/surface anatomy and postural analysis sessions require suitable clothing i.e. shorts and t-shirt, as well as sports bra or tank top underneath clothing. Participants must be ready to disrobe for this exciting practical course.
