5th WORLD ONLINE MASTER COURSE: PPSCT - PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE OF
SCOLIOSIS CONSERVATIVE TREATMENT (Who, How, When and Why to treat)

Online distance learning

Presentation

In 2016, ISICO launched an annual distance-learning course, open to
participants from all over the world. The aim was to offer professionals
specialist training in the Principles and Practice of Scoliosis
Conservative Treatment (PPSCT), delivered by a faculty whose members are
among today’s leading experts in the field worldwide. In planning the
course, we drew on the decade of experience we had acquired through our
residential Master course.
The first four editions were a great success, and saw participants from
all five continents engaged in an ongoing learning process, which is
both engaging and effective.
ISICO is keen to share its extensive clinical and scientific experience
with course participants, in the hope that this will result, worldwide,
in increased availability of good quality conservative treatment with a
high success rate. During the course the ISICO experts share their
treatment protocols and treatment strategies in a practical way, through
clinical cases, but participants are also given a general overview of
the main treatment techniques, of demonstrated efficacy, used by the
leading experts around the world.

Educational goals
• To achieve the ability to provide good quality care, over time, to
patients affected by spinal deformities, especially children and
adolescent
• To grasp the theoretical basis of such care
• To learn the ISICO approach to patient assessment and the treatment
decision process
• To gain a solid basic understanding of the main current treatment
techniques
• To become familiar with conservative treatments, particularly SEAS
(exercises) and SPoRT (braces), and when and how to prescribe them.

Qualification for the Course
Although the PPSCT course was initially designed for physicians to
address their need for a comprehensive overview of the state of the art
in the diagnosis and treatment of scoliosis, its content may also be of
interest to other professionals involved in the treatment of this
condition. We therefore also accept applications from physiotherapists,
orthotists, PhD students, and so on. All applicants must be aware that
the various learning activities are based on the assumption that course
participating have a medical background.
The course organizers apply a grading process whereby points are
assigned on the basis of active participation in the discussion group
and live sessions. There is a minimum number of points that participants
must obtain in order to receive the Attendance Certificate.
Those receiving this requisite number of points are also entitled to
take the Final PPSCT Examination and, if they pass it, will be awarded
the PPSCT Certificate relevant to their profession.

Course organization
The PPSCT course is entirely delivered online, through the dedicated
Online Learning Platform. The course is organized in 12 Modules, each
one lasting two weeks. Each module includes three recorded theoretical
lectures (each one about 45 minutes), self-administered by the students
at a time suitable to them. Each lecture recommends 2 to 3 scientific
papers, to be read to complete the task. Each module includes
furthermore three Discussion groups where specific topics linked to the
theme of the current module are discussed to enhance the students’
participation and to improve the learning process. The students state
their opinion and support it with appropriate quotations to justify
their position and to uphold it with the colleagues. Each module ends
with an Online Live Session held by a coordinator, presenting clinical
cases selected accordingly to the module's topics and the discussion
groups. These are the only appointments which require to be connected
live at a specific date/time (every two weeks for 1 hour).
