So Christmas isn’t even upon us yet and some businesses are already selling next year’s training courses. The ruddy cheek of it! A couple of our closest referring clinicians have insisted we announce this as soon as possible, and so we’ve prioritised putting up the tree and decorations here in clinic to tell you about (some of) next year’s professional education plans.
“Keeping up with Drs Wikipedia and Google for the benefit of my running clients is a constant struggle”
You only have to pause for a few moments during the working day and gaze out of the window to see that running is popular. And our technology friends in Cupertino (other -esque products are available) have succeeded in getting more of us moving more than ever before on a daily basis.
Behind closed doors though, clinicians all too often find themselves overwhelmed with conflicting information regarding running styles, frequency, and that most mysterious piece of equipment, the running shoe. Running shops offer a retail experience, with a clinical understanding and perspective unavailable.
So we decided to craft a day of lectures, specifically aimed at clinicians, with the aim of explaining running, the current theories and how we got to them, and trainer technology and where it’s going. We’re inviting the big trainer companies to come and talk to our delegates for an hour of the day, to explain the new language of trainers.
We’re confident that attendees will leave confident with their improved and updated knowledge, and capable to answer any of the questions their patients and clients may bring. And most importantly, it’ll be knowledge that complements and augments clinicians’ existing skills. Who know, we may even go full circle and suggest some changes to Dr. Wiki’s ever-growing compendium!
We’ll be Social Media-ing using #KnowRunning; we look forward to seeing you somewhere around the country in 2017. Registration is open now on the dedicated information and booking page.
