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.  

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. 

Clinical Mentorship: Teaching and Learning Strategies in Clinical Practice

3 Hrs
The purpose of this intermediate-level course is to provide foundational concepts of effective clinical teaching and learning, including teaching strategies and student assessment in the clinical education environment for physical therapists. To become an effective teacher in a complex and uncertain environment such as clinical practice, one needs to demonstrate essential teaching principles, adapt to the learning needs of the student to facilitate learning, and assess the learner’s (student or new professional) knowledge, skills, and abilities to determine readiness to enter clinical practice. Upon completion of this course, the participant will gain exposure to effective teaching tools to use in the clinical setting, strategies to facilitate the clinical reasoning process of the student, and assessment of student learning during the clinical experience. This course is recommended for clinical instructors in physical therapist or physical therapist assistant.

Examination and Treatment of Peripheral Vestibular Disorders

5 Hrs
The purpose of this course is to educate the practicing physical therapist on the management of patients with peripheral vestibular disorders in order to expand their current practice skill set into the subspecialty of vestibular rehabilitation. This will be accomplished through knowledge of functional anatomy of the vestibular system and current methods of evidence-based examination and the process of differential assessment to determine effective treatment of common peripheral vestibular disorders, or when referral is appropriate. 

Osteoarthritis of the Hip: Rehabilitation and Treatment Strategies, 2nd Edition

4 Hrs
This intermediate-level course is designed to provide physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with a comprehensive overview of current evidence-based treatment strategies for patients with Osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip joint. The course reviews the pathomechanical changes that are associated with hip OA and discusses nonmodifiable and modifiable risk factors.

Assessment and Clinical Strategies for Total Joint Replacement of the Hip & Knee

6 Hrs
Wed Oct 7 | 11:00 am – 05:00 pm EDT
Total Joint Replacements are the fastest growing segment of orthopedic surgery. Tens of millions of Americans are currently diagnosed with arthritis of the hip and knee with a dramatic increase in these diagnoses projected over the next decade. As a result, an increase in Total Joint Replacement surgeries is also predicted. Clinicians must have a good working knowledge of non-surgical conservative interventions for this patient population. With the recent changes in Medicare, knowing the correct approach and how to properly document your therapy with patients is imperative.

In this seminar, you will gain the knowledge to identify and deter the progression of degenerative changes, and manage this ever growing segment of clients for the rehab professional.  Dr. Rzepkowski will give you the necessary tools to clinically identify common orthopedic problems of the Hip and Knee and understand the rehab implication of various surgical techniques for repair. Attendees will gain useful prevention strategies of youth injury, clinical identification of joint pathology, and functional rehab interventions for all ages including total joint replacements. Using videos of surgical procedures Dr. Rzepkowski will demonstrate changes before and after intraoperative repair. Attendees will learn how to use electronic strategies to provide functional analysis and create custom rehab exercises in both non-operative and post-operative patients to optimize functional return and deter re-occurrence of injury. The clinical techniques covered in this course can be easily integrated into the clinic or home the next day.
