Neuronal Conduction for Beginners Workshop

November 3 – 4, 2018
The College of Staten Island, New York

The Neuronal Conduction for Beginners Workshop is a two-day course that provides theoretical background and hands-on experience in current neuronal conduction techniques, including Motor nerve conduction, sensory nerve conduction and Late responses, including H-reflex and F-wave.

This course is specifically designed for:

  • Technicians who need to learn new skills
  • Individuals who attended one or two-day workshops and want more information
  • Individuals who plan to progress through a series of courses from beginner to advanced levels

Participants gain a clear understanding of this specialty area with an appreciation for the depth of study and practice required to attain clinical expertise in neuronal conduction through intense study and laboratory practice. More than half of this course is hands-on training guided by expert clinicians.

Registration includes all workshop handouts, disposable electrode kits and certificate of attendance upon completion of course. Continental breakfast and lunch are included. The Performing Motor and Sensory Neural Conduction Studies in Adult Humans manual is provided upon registration and send to the address listed on the registration form.

Students will learn:

  • Anatomic and physiologic basis of neuronal conduction
  • Basics of electrodiagnostic instrumentation
  • Rationale and methods to perform motor and sensory conduction of the major nerves in the upper and lower extremities
  • Rationale and methods to perform H-reflex and F-wave studies

NCS Workshop Instructors

  • Roger Nelson, P.T., Ph.D., F.A.P.T.A.
  • John Lugo, P.T., MS, ECS

Airline reservations

Attendees are responsible for their own transportation to and from the airport to hotel. Please do not make non-refundable airline reservations; Cadwell is not responsible for the refund of travel or hotel expenses under any circumstances.

Cancellation policy

Cadwell reserves the right to cancel the course within 14 calendar days of the start date. In the unlikely event that a course is cancelled, 100% of the tuition will be refunded. Participant cancellations made more than 14 calendar days before the course receive a tuition refund minus a 20% administrative fee. The nature of the “hands on” aspect of the course from an equipment and instructional stand point, dictates that an optimal number of participants be maintained. Therefore participant cancellations made less than 14 days before the course start date, including no shows, will result in the tuition being non-refundable and non-transferable to a future date.
