Course Description

Presenter: Lainie Cameron

In this webinar, we will explore the boundaries and overlap between osteopathy and exercise physiology, probing scopes of practice through a case-based approach. Topics covered include:

  • When could osteopaths refer to an AEP? (ie: osteopaths’ scope of practice)
  • What can you expect from an AEP? (ie: AEPs’ scope of practice)
  • Eight clinical domains of practice for AEPs: cancer, cardiovascular, renal, mental health, metabolic, musculoskeletal, neurological, and pulmonary.
  • Looking forward together – it’s not a turf war!
