  • Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias: Medical Overview and Rehabilitation Management, 2nd ed - 4HRS
    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. 
  • Conservative and Surgical Management of the Osteoarthritic Hand and Wrist - 5HRS
    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.
  • Exercise Prescription Management of the Older Adult: An Evidence-Based Approach, 2nd Edition - 5HRS
    This intermediate level course is designed to educate PTs and PTAs on the implementation of exercise prescriptions in older adults. This course will review the multiple age-related systemic changes that take place in the cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine and musculoskeletal systems and describe how exercise may mitigate these changes. This course will also provide recommended exercise prescriptions according to the most recent American College of Sports Medicine guidelines for older adults and discuss common barriers for exercise participation in older adults.
  • Preventing Falls in Older Adults - 5HRS
    An older adult falls every second of every day, with more than 29 million falls occurring in 2014, resulting in more than 7 million injuries. This intermediate-level course provides healthcare professionals in the areas of physical and occupational therapy with the knowledge they need to successfully identify those at risk for falls, assess individuals, and develop interventions targeted at reducing fall risk in older adults. Although therapists may be aware of the need to assess and treat older adults for risk for falls, they may not be fully abreast of approaches that are supported by evidence and are proven to truly reduce the incidence of falls. 
  • Telehealth for Physical and Occupational Therapy - 1HRS
    This beginner’s level course will teach practitioners how to set up and complete telehealth sessions for a physical or occupational therapy practice, primarily focusing on how to evaluate, monitor, and treat patients remotely.
