Reason to better treat:

Clinical applications

Multi-professional training

The clinical reasoning training was born following many discussions on the interest of having a solid and scientific structure in order to best help the patient.

We are convinced that the management of a health problem requires specific skills of reflection and situation.

However, these characteristics are too often put aside in favor of a recipe or a protocol that does not take into account the uniqueness of a clinical situation.Thus, the content of the course has three major objectives.

First, the contribution of up-to-date theoretical knowledge on clinical reasoning, in particular through Bayesian theory.

Then, we will discuss the different stages of the resolution of a clinical case, from the hypotheses to the treatment techniques, using a scientific and reasoned logic.

And finally, the application of this reflection by acquiring numerous examples and clinical cases.

François Angelliaume is a physiotherapist-Osteopath, TMO practitioner - Certification Concept Maitland.


Liberal physiotherapist in the Nantes region , François quickly specialized in the management of musculoskeletal problems. The advanced practice training in musculoskeletal (Concept Maitland) quickly orients his practice in this direction.

With several training courses, he shares his activity between teaching in IFMK and continuing education as well as patient follow-up.

Clinical reasoning in the service of understanding the health problem remains a priority element in his practice.


Romain Artico is a physiotherapist masseur, and holds a Master 2 VHMA research option, and a Doctorate in movement sciences.


Passionate about sport, movement and caring for others, he has been a physiotherapist for 8 years in SSR geriatrics .

He was first interested in the fall of the elderly and in the search for its causes in the field of movement and balance. It is in this way that clinical reasoning has taken an increasingly important part in its formation.

In parallel with his hospital activity, he has always been strongly interested in musculoskeletal by working with competitive or high level athletes (BMX, Badminton).

To improve his clinical reasoning, he trained with the Maitland Concept in which he discovered a scientific view of clinical reasoning which he enjoyed to appropriate and practice.

Passionate about teaching and research, he did a doctorate in movement science on balancing mechanisms in which he was able to deepen fields of neuroscience and biomechanics.

Neurosciences and in particular Bayesianism have enriched his vision of clinical reasoning and made him want to transmit it both in IFMK and in continuing education.
