Connecticut Physical Therapy Full CE Requirement Package – 20 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.
Ethical Practices With Older Adults, Updated (4 hrs)
This basic-level course is written for healthcare professionals, including nurses, social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, occupational and physical therapy practitioners, and respiratory therapists. Other healthcare professionals who work with older adults and on interdisciplinary teams will also find the information presented useful to their practice.
Evaluations and Treatment of the Cervical Spine (2 hrs)
Neck or cervical spine pain and dysfunction can have multiple causes.

There are multiple types of MS that will be discussed in this course. A patient’s functional abilities can vary depending on the type of MS that he/she is diagnosed with and how fast the disease progresses. Physical and occupational therapists play a key role in the treatment of patients with MS: It is important for these rehabilitation professionals to understand this disease
