  • Cancer Rehabilitation Across the Lifespan - 2HRS
    Occupational therapy practitioners encompass a wealth of knowledge and skill to decrease the burden of cancer on oncology clients. Evidence to support this is emerging. Silver and Gilchrist (2011) remind us that “evidence-based care is the cornerstone of optimal treatment, and with oncology rehabilitation still in its infancy, there is much work to be done” (p. S12). It is this aim, as well as that of the American Occupational Therapy Association’s (AOTA) Vision 2025, that guides the content of this course in linking evidence, well-being, and quality of life during and following cancer treatment for diverse communities (AOTA, 2017a). The primary purpose of this course is to promote competence and confidence in the utilization of evidence-based occupational therapy services to this emerging and underserved population. Using the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain and Process, 3rd edition (AOTA, 2014) as a mechanism to negotiate through the occupational therapy process, an introductory overview of common cancer diagnoses, treatment, and rehabilitation implications throughout the continuum of care will be provided. Evidence-based, client-centered evaluation and intervention recommendations will be emphasized while providing participants with the knowledge and resources required for best practice in oncology rehabilitation. This basic-level course will be a stepping-stone to align evidence-based recommendations to clinical application specific to the emerging and complex field of oncology rehabilitation for occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants.
  • Concussion Management: A Comprehensive Evidence-Based Approach - 2HRS
    Concussion most commonly occurs during sports-related activities. The purpose of this intermediate-level course is to provide an overview of concussion with areas to assess and treat for the occupational therapy practitioner.  Current evidence-based references are highlighted along with topics widely accepted in practice. This course is for practitioners who have a basic knowledge of brain injury and want to advance their skills in the assessment and treatment of concussion.
  • Multidimensional Functional Assessment of the Older Adult, 2nd Edition - 3HRS
    The purpose of this basic level course is to enable occupational therapy practitioners and other rehabilitation professionals to understand and assess functional performance in older adults using a multidimensional approach. This is an introductory course for practitioners who are new to this population or who desire a refresher on the most current evidence related to functional assessment of older adults.
