On Wednesday October 25th, the Directors of Innova Health Clinics will once again be involved in the Annual MacHand Day which is focussing on the shoulder joint .
The MacHANd Group was established in 2007 as a result of the partnership and collaboration between the School of Rehabilitation Science and the Department of Surgery at McMaster University. The MacHANd Group's common interest in hand and upper limb related injuries, diseases, disorders, and conditions brings together a multi-disciplinary team of anaesthetists, hand therapists, kinesiologists, nerve specialists, occupational therapists, orthopaedic surgeons, physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, physiotherapists, plastic surgeons, radiologists, researchers, and scientists.
Once again this year, Michael Vallely will be chairing the day and Sharmila Kulkarni will be presenting a workshop for Healthcare Professionals on Patient Self-Care for the Shoulder.
As one of the most experienced Hand Therapists in the province, Michael Vallely is often asked to provide his knowledge and expertise at talks and conferences. This Saturday he will be in Toronto presenting a Splinting Workshop to Surgical Assistants.
This month our crew will be examining the pathophysiology of cardiac conditions. While we don't treat our Patients for their cardiac conditions, a thorough knowledge of the pathophysiology, the pharmacology, the current medical treatments and the effect of cardiac disease on the body as a whole are important topics for any practicing health care practitioner.
We are pleased to announce that Innova Health Clinic has been nominated in the category for: Osteopath- Marcelle Constable. Congratulations to Marcelle!
