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.

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.

Assessing and Treating the Rotational Athlete – Elite Livestream

6 Hrs
Sat Aug 1 | 02:00 pm – 03:30 pm EDT

Description:

Rotational athletes have sport-specific needs.  Being able to assess and treat them can be difficult and time-consuming. Awareness and understanding of the kinematic sequence of rotational athletes is crucial for proper assessment and adequately communicating evaluation findings with coaches and trainers.

This course is designed to equip the therapist with a treatment blueprint for the assessment and treatment of the rotational athlete regardless of their sport. Using a joint-by-joint approach you will learn techniques to improve joint mobility, core stability, and the kinematic sequence of rotational athletes.  Additionally, an introduction to the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) and how to apply it to rotational athletes will aid in diagnosis and treatment decisions. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of which body segments should and should not rotate and provide your patients with exercises that can be used in the clinic, the gym, or added to a home-based strength training program.

Objectives:

  • Explain the joint-by-joint approach to assessment and how it relates to the rotational athlete.
  • Using movement screens, identify which body segments contribute the most to a proper rotational kinematic sequence.
  • Discuss how SFMA can be applied in the assessment and treatment of the rotational athlete
  • Compare and contrast the difference between Technique instruction and physical therapy interventions as they relate to the rotational athlete
  • Describe treatment strategies that improve mobility, stability, strength, and power for the rotational athlete.
