Om evenemanget


The participants should at the end of the course have gained competence to independently identify problems related to muscle overactivity in complex movements in the forearm and hand muscles. Be able to set SMART/ GAS goals for the treatment. To Identify muscles with UL and EMG/ Stim guidance technic and plan and perform relevant treatment with botulinum toxin. To evaluate the treatment response and adjust the subsequent treatment. The participant will acquire basic knowledge of the use of selective diagnostic motor nerve blocks and surgical treatment options. The participants will know when and how to involve relevant interdisciplinary partners and will have knowledge about relevant aids for optimal treatment results.
