Colorado Physical Therapy CE Package – 30 Hours
Adaptive Equipment (AE) and Durable Medical Equipment (DME) (2 hrs)
Adaptive equipment and durable medical equipment both have their places in the rehabilitative process. Both categories of equipment provide compensatory routes for patients who want to function as well and as independently as possible during their day-to-day lives. The following course material will assist physical therapists (PTs) and occupational therapists (OTs) in addressing the numerous barriers to effectively incorporate adaptive equipment (AE) and durable medical equipment (DME) into their patients’ interventions—and eventually into their lives after discharge from services.
Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias: Medical Overview and Rehabilitation Management, 2nd ed (4 hrs)
The purpose of this course is to provide useful, pragmatic information to rehabilitation therapists to facilitate successful rehabilitation for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Too often, those with dementia are excluded from rehabilitation opportunities based on the assumption that they will not benefit, or they are given a brief trial of rehabilitation that does not take into consideration the special needs of this population and, as a result, they do not make gains. This course will provide an overview of Alzheimer’s disease and its medical management, practical information on optimal interactions with individuals who have Alzheimer’s disease, research findings related to motor learning in this population, existing evidence on rehabilitation with individuals with dementia, and strategies to facilitate successful outcomes.
Cerebral Palsy Across the Lifespan, 2nd ed (6 hrs)
This intermediate-level course provides updated, evidence- based information for physical therapists and occupational therapists who work with individuals who have cerebral palsy. This course will be particularly helpful to clinicians who have not recently reviewed the literature related to cerebral palsy and to those who do not frequently provide physical therapy services for this population. Physical therapists who received their training before the profession’s move to doctoral-level training may also find this course helpful because of its focus on the clinical reasoning skills that are necessary when patients can directly access physical therapists without physician referral. Most physical therapists and occupational therapists in pediatric clinical settings will encounter individuals with cerebral palsy. Because pediatric and school-based clinical services typically end by the age of 21, physical therapists and occupational therapists who provide treatment in adult therapy settings also need to be competent in treating this rapidly growing segment of the adult population. Physical and occupational therapists who work with this heterogeneous population need to be aware of the many factors critical to clinical decision making. This course will address prevalence, etiology, diagnosis, classification, examination, evaluation, prognosis, interventions, and outcomes for individuals with cerebral palsy across the lifespan. Because the body of literature related to this diagnosis is extensive, this course will provide an overview of the most salient current issues that impact the clinical decisions and care provided by physical therapists and occupational therapists. Clinicians who desire a more in-depth understanding of cerebral palsy are encouraged to pursue applicable resources and references more extensively.
Chronic Illness and Depression- PT (3 hrs)
This basic-level course addresses the knowledge gap by providing rehabilitation professionals with an overview of the co-occurrence of depression and chronic conditions and identifying challenges in screening and referring adults with chronic conditions and depression. It provides explanations for potential causes of and contributing factors to depression unique to individuals with chronic medical conditions. Although individuals with chronic conditions are at increased risk for depression, this course also explores factors that may enhance such individuals’ well-being and diminish the likelihood of depression.
Breast Cancer: Contemporary Rehabilitation Strategies (6 hrs)
The purpose of this intermediate-level course is to provide a critical review of current evidence to inform physical therapy best practice for the breast cancer patient population. Upon fulfilling the course objectives, practitioners will be prepared to develop an evidence-based approach to the evaluation and treatment of individuals with breast cancer throughout the survivorship continuum.
Conservative and Surgical Management of the Osteoarthritic Hand and Wrist (5 hrs)
This intermediate-level course provides physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with a detailed overview of the pathophysiology and mechanics of the joints of the hand of those diagnosed with OA. The course offers practitioners in-depth knowledge of several of the most common medical and evidence-based practices and provides instruction for technique application in physical therapy examination and evaluation, as well as intervention.
Ethical Practices With Older Adults, Updated (4 hrs)
Colorado PTA Full CE Requirement 30-Hour Package
Running Injuries (4 hrs)
The purpose of this intermediate-level course for physical therapists and physical therapy assistants is to improve evaluation skills and intervention selection regarding running-related injuries. To achieve this, this course will (1) review the impact of running injuries and contributing factors, (2) discuss the underlying theories that have shaped current and emerging assessment methods and treatments, and (3) detail appropriate tests and protocols for evaluation and treatment of the injured runner.
Total Knee Arthroplasty: Current Concepts in Physical Therapy Management (3.75 hrs)
In the United States, total knee arthroplasty is one of the most common elective surgical procedures with more than 700,000 procedures performed each year. Research is ongoing, but most experts contend that for the most successful postoperative outcome, rehabilitation is an essential component of recovery. Physical therapists must have an in-depth knowledge of current best practice for this population to maximize their return to function and quality of life. Additionally, with the emergence of new reimbursement models for Total Joint Replacement care, it is essential for physical therapy practitioners to utilize the most appropriate outcome measures in data collection and reporting. The purpose of this intermediate level course is to provide physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with a comprehensive overview of the many considerations surrounding knee replacement surgery, including the relevant anatomy, epidemiology, patient selection criteria, surgical considerations, common postoperative complications, and rehabilitation strategies. This course discusses the pre and postoperative patient management, rehabilitation goals and treatment in the acute, post-acute, and functional recovery stages. This course, which is relevant for physical therapists and physical therapy assistants, provides evidence-based research that supports rehabilitation treatment methods and outcomes following total knee arthroplasty while highlighting the areas in need of further study.
Rotator Cuff Injuries and Interventions: A Physical Therapy Perspective (4.25 hrs)
The purpose of this course is to provide physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with a current, comprehensive overview of rotator cuff injuries and the role of physical therapy examination, diagnosis and interventions, as well as review alternative and surgical approaches to the problem. This course will provide an in-depth review of relevant shoulder anatomy and biomechanics, examine potential causes for rotator cuff pathology, describe treatment techniques commonly used in individuals with rotator cuff pathology, and review indications and complications relating to rotator cuff surgery. The focus of this intermediate level course is to explore the current best evidence to assist in reducing the deficits in knowledge related to the cause of rotator cuff pathology, provide updated evidence related to diagnostic accuracy and effective interventions while highlighting the areas still in need of future research.
Concussions Management: A Comprehensive Evidence-Based Approach for the Physical Therapist (4.75 hrs)
Evidence-Based Management of Knee Osteoarthritis (4 hrs)
The purpose of this intermediate level course is to provide physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with up-to date, evidence-based information pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of knee OA. Although this course will be most applicable to physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who work with older individuals in outpatient settings, the increased incidence of OA makes the information in this course relevant to therapists in a variety of settings. Even therapists who specialize and treat patients in areas other than orthopaedic settings will likely encounter individuals whose OA affects their participation, mobility, or function.
Adhesive Capsulitis: Physical Therapy Examination, Diagnosis, and Intervention, 2nd Edition (4 hrs)
This intermediate level course developed for physical therapists and physical therapy assistants, describes the most recent findings in functional anatomy of the shoulder, provides an overview of adhesive capsulitis, including its etiology and epidemiology, and offers an up-to-date, evidence-based foundation for the diagnosis and intervention of adhesive capsulitis.
Supporting Aging in Place: A Physical Therapist's Toolkit (5.25 hrs)
This intermediate level course is designed to assist physical therapists and physical therapy assistants in evaluating, planning, and preparing their older adult clients to age in place. This toolkit will highlight the role physical therapy plays in enhancing the quality of life for older adults and to allow them to participate in meaningful activities while remaining in their homes as they age and make the necessary modifications to do so.
