Event description

Description

The GOsC are currently consulting about changes to the structure of Continuing Professional Development. One key proposal for consultation is that communication and consent becomes compulsory CPD for all osteopaths, as this has been identified as a priority area and is central to the majority of patient complains received by the GOsC.

This course is an opportunity to refresh and upgrade your communication and consent skills and to discuss experiences and scenarios with fellow osteopaths. In the morning you will receive a refresher on communication and consent, and this will be followed with a more detailed look at specific patient groups in the afternoon. The first afternoon session will consider issues of communication and consent relating to patients with dementia, Alzheimers and/or with limited capacity, and the second will focus on those related to children and their parents.

About the course leaders:

Yinka Fabusuyi (Bsc Ost. BWY Dip) is an Osteopath with over 20 years of experience she currently practices in South West London. In 2008. Yinka established the Holmewood Osteopathic Practice, which offers patient centered, evidence based treatment and management for back pain, sciatica, hip and knee pain, tendonitis of the shoulder, rib pain, neck pain and stiffness, and poor posture associated with work ergonomics. Prior to establishing her own practice, Yinka was based at Stockwell Group Practice, a large NHS general practice in South London. This enabled Yinka to work within a multidisciplinary team comprising fellow osteopaths, GPs, physiotherapists, acupuncturists, counsellors, shiatsu therapists, and nurses.
Yinka is also a clinic tutor and lecturer at The British School of Osteopathy since 2001.

Steven Vogel (Vice Principal - Research, The British School of Osteopathy. Editor-in-Chief, The International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine). Most of Steven’s working time is spent on research and education at the British School of Osteopathy. He held a clinical post as an osteopath in an NHS primary care setting for many years. His recent research has focused on reassurance, communication and consent, and safety in manual therapy. He was the lead researcher in the largest UK study investigating patient and osteopath’s experience of risk management and adverse events and consent. Steven has published widely and been involved in the development of NICE’s clinical guidelines for low back pain and sciatica.
