  • Determine which tests are appropriate for certain diagnoses and functional levels including frail to active seniors.
  • Learn normative data and which tests are recommended based on strong psychometric properties.
  • Improve skills for writing patient centered goals and documenting skilled daily notes.
  • Use functional test scores to show progress with ADL ability and safety to perform ADL’s.

Functional Tests covered during course

  • Tests for Functional Strength
  • Tests for Aerobic Endurance
  • Balance and Fall Risk Assessments
  • Gait Assessments
  • Objective Tests for ADL Performance
  • Functional Flexibility Tests
  • Questionnaires to assess confidence with mobility

Course Description

This interactive and practical two-day course brings today’s therapist valuable evidence-based information and tools that they can immediately implement into everyday practice as a non-specialist. The text book accompanying the course provides anatomical review, common injuries seen in the hand, and an introduction to provocative testing that can be used to effectively evaluate the most common hand injuries seen in a variety of settings. Accompanying videos and hands-on labs round out the course curriculum with valuable treatment techniques and provides a forum for brainstorming and discussion on the latest evidence-based practice techniques.

Course content includes an intermediate review of hand and wrist anatomy and physiological systems related to the most common upper extremity injuries. Screening, evaluation, and treatment tools are presented in the lab activities with a focus on a “hands on” approach. Objective measurement combined with functional activity are discussed to aid in choosing appropriate interventions and to help justify medical necessity in response to today’s changing reimbursement climate. Didactic discussion is encouraged as we problem-solve how clinicians can balance excellent patient care with appropriate billing and documentation of the services we provide.

Evaluation, Treatment, and Prognosis will be reviewed for:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

  • I now have a better arsenal of standardized assessments I can use to identify those at risk for falls in the hospital setting. This can be documented and used to support recommendations as well as a way to measure progress with therapy (especially patients with longer lengths of stay). (Portland class participant March 2017).
  • I will be able to perform fall risk testing with increased skill and add new interventions to address functional problems (Spokane class participant February 2017).

Course Description

Patients commonly present to their physician’s offices and emergency departments due to unnerving and often debilitating complaints of dizziness resulting in disequilibrium and gait instability. Prevalence increases with age and dizziness can be attributed to a multitude of causative factors. Patients often have difficulty characterizing their symptoms. Therapists are increasingly being consulted to evaluate patients to address their complaints of dizziness and related mobility impairments.

Given the broad scope of Vestibular Rehabilitation, this course is designed to provide emphasis on evaluation and treatment concepts in the management of BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo). You will learn concepts and tests to differentiate central from peripheral vestibular causes, including specific tests to identify BPPV canal involvement. A significant amount of time will be spent in lab learning testing and treatment techniques and mechanics. Videos will be used to assist participants in learning to read nystagmus eye movement patterns, including differentiating BPPV canal involved and type (canalithasis versus cupulolithiasis). Case studies and group discussion will reinforce learning and assist participants in identifying atypical findings that warrant discussion with referring providers.

Course Description

Health care professionals often work with individuals with one or more chronic conditions. According to a study reported by the CDC, approximately one half (117 million) of US adults have at least one of the 10 chronic conditions examined (hypertension, coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, hepatitis, weak or failing kidneys, current asthma, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). Furthermore, 1 in 4 adults has multiple chronic diagnosis.

The success of any rehabilitation program ultimately depends upon the individual’s ability to manage their overall health. The plan of care must include both the treatment diagnosis along with any co-morbidities in order to optimize therapy goals. This course is designed to assist the rehabilitation professional in developing a basic understanding of self-management of chronic conditions. Helping patients to understand key elements of their chronic condition and how it affects their action plan for therapy will lead to better therapeutic outcomes.

Course Description

This course is designed to assist the rehabilitation professional in developing a basic understanding of the relationship between how medications work and what effects the actions of medication will have on the disease process or condition, as well as on the ability of a patient to demonstrate quality function and safe ADL management. The ability to gauge what can be expected in the way of restoration of physical strength, aerobic exercise tolerance and general mobility is challenged by medications. This self -study course is drawn from a text that simplifies medications allowing the therapist to begin to understand how medications work and what they treat.  The knowledge gained from this study will be expanded by exploring the pathology and the impact on the function of the body and the patient.  The text includes the purpose, side effects, route of administration and drug interactions.
