We invite you to join the AHTA and Sally Hess BPhty PhD MACP at the Queensland Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting on Frozen shoulder: understanding the condition and improving management. 

Frozen shoulder remains an enigma for the medical profession. Physiotherapy offers a unique environment for us to educate and enable patients to exercise more freely. Research of the condition is demonstrating beneficial effects on pain, physical function and quality of life. Understanding and evaluating the effects frozen shoulder has on our clients allows us the opportunity to better manage patients to improve outcomes and satisfaction. 

This seminar is hosted by the QLD (SIG) and will be available as a webinar for interstate members or those that are unable to attend in person. If you are unable to attend the seminar and webinar at the scheduled time, the webinar will be available in the AHTA member webinar library following the event.
