Thank you for an engaging and insightful course. Great resources and a breadth of highly relevant topics have allowed me to consolidate my theoretical foundations in neurological rehab.
This was a very good broad course that I would recommend to either experienced or newer therapists. The readings and interviews were very good and thorough enough to give depth.
PP+ is really the best way to enlarge your knowledge and be connected with other physiotherapists from different areas.
