How long do I have to access the materials?

You will have 90 days to access the materials and you will have unlimited access during this time.  This means you can watch and re-watch the lessons as many times as you like and also have unlimited access to the quizzes and bonus content.

I don’t have much spare time, how will I manage the course?

The program is entirely self paced so you can fit it around busy schedules and work/social commitments.  In total, the course takes 8 hours to complete so you will have plenty of time to work your way through the content.  We also include a planner as part of our bonuses which will assist you to plan your time to make sure you can make the most out of the content.

Is there an assessment component?

Yes, the course includes 123 quiz questions that are spaced throughout the modules and lessons.  Each quiz targets the knowledge that has just been taught in the preceding lesson and helps you to consolidate what you have just learned.

Do you cover the use of cough assist (mechanical in-exsufflation) in the community?

Certainly do.  Within the course there is a case study demonstrating the use of mechanical in-exsufflation and we also talk through what the ideal settings might be, and how to titrate up to these gently and safely.  We also talk about the important considerations before implementing positive pressure techniques to ensure safety and efficacy.  Having worked fluidly across all settings – ICU, acute wards, inpatient rehabilitation and community this course is taught in a way that the knowledge and skills can be easily implemented throughout all work settings with patients at all different points in their journey. 

Can the principles in the course be extrapolated to other neurological populations?

This course has been built based on the best available literature in the spinal cord injury and trauma populations, and incorporates the recently published physiotherapy clinical practice guidelines in spinal cord injury.  Whilst the content may be extrapolated to other populations, in particular those with neuromuscular weakness, the considerations around this and implications for safety are not addressed in this course.
