Our First Sports Trauma Management course in Scotland

This month Lubas medical provided our first Sports Trauma Managementcourse in Scotland. The course was hosted at the Craiglockhart leisure and tennis centre, by Kenny Watt who is the Edinburgh representative for the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Sport and Exercise Medicine (ACPSEM).

The course was a resounding success. Feedback complimented the delivery and content, with one participant stating that information was provided in a “Professional but relaxed manner”. Physiotherapists and professionals from a variety of sporting backgrounds attended, ranging from football to bobsleigh. 

Our updated Sports Trauma Management course provided valuable information on how to identify, manage and treat traumatic injuries in sport, be it with a team or as a solo clinician. Also included, are practical sessions which demonstrate spinal & fracture management, breathing assessments, the use of airways adjuncts and more. 

The ACPSEM, who recognise the course as fulfilling their requirement for Continual Professional Development (CPD) pathways to Gold Level, encourages and supports physiotherapists to broaden their experiential learning opportunities.

We provide a number of dates for Sports Trauma Management courses around the UK, with more being added every month. The next course is in Colchester on the 16th + 17th April, and we will return to Scotland in the summer. To book a course click here.
