The pedagogical contents, 41 videos in total, 10-12 minutes average each, during 11 units, with one self assessment in each unit.
To obtain the final certification a Final Knowledge Exam must be done.
SPECIFIC OBJETIVES OF THE BASIC LEVEL
Train the students to:
- Be an active member of a multidisciplinary team, for the treatment of the deformities of the spine.
- Understand the ethiopathogenesis and pathomechanism of the morphological alterations of the spine in the sagittal plane, as well as the idiopathic scoliosis.
- Carry out a clinical and functional assessment of the patient with scoliosis and elaborate a complete clinical history.
- Make a correct clinical and functional diagnosis of the morphological alterations of the sagittal plane and the scoliosis.
- Use and interpret the questionnaires about the life quality of the patient with scoliosis.
- Assess and interpret the additional radiological tests of the patient with scoliosis using digital tools for its assessment, diagnosis , comprehension and prognosis.
- Assess, analyze and understand the orthopedic treatment to be used in the deformities of the spine.
- Understand the importance of the use of scientific evidence in the non-surgical treatment of the scoliosis.
- Apply the SOSORT Guide for the Clinical Practice, published in 2018.
