Concussion Management: A Comprehensive Evidence-Based Approach for the Physical Therapist

Price: $39.95 Hours:4 Contact Hours
Item # Q3569  

Release Date: September 19, 2017

This intermediate course is designed for practicing physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who work with individuals with acute and chronic concussion. This course will be most beneficial for the clinician who has a basic knowledge of concussion and concussion management, but has not recently reviewed the current literature in concussion care that includes the significant changes in the classification of concussion and the approach to diagnosis that considers the complexity of concussion and the need for individualized patient centered care. Gaps in knowledge that have been identified in physical therapy practice include the role of neuroimaging in concussion, the understanding of current guidelines and definitions of concussion, how to identify and design interventions based on individual examination results, and the prescription of individualized graded return to activity and sport. This course will provide a more comprehensive evidenced based understanding of the complex nature of concussion including the pathophysiology of concussion, physiologic, cervicogenic, and vestibulo-ocular dysfunction that may result, the current suggested classification methods, an understanding of the shift in recommended timelines for rest and return to activity, and the tools necessary for evidenced based examination and treatment.

Lower Limb Amputation: Hospital-Based Rehabilitation

Price: $29.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # Q3570  

Release Date: February 8, 2016

Periods of armed conflict have always brought attention to the impact of limb loss. Over 1,500 servicemen and women have suffered major limb loss during U.S. military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. However, the majority of people with limb loss cared for by the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) lose limbs due to vascular disease and diabetes. The VHA reports that 5,000 new cases are added each year to the 43,000 people with limb loss who they cared for annually.  Approximately 1.7 million people live with limb loss in the United States and that number is expected to more than double to more than 3.6 million by the year 2050.  Lasting impairment in walking ability is common among people with lower limb amputations, with more than half of community-dwelling people not reaching a satisfactory level of prosthesis use for mobility.

Physical therapists play an important role in the early restoration of functional mobility to people with lower limb loss. The immediate initiation of postoperative care and pre-prosthetic care within a hospital setting can reduce the risk of adverse events, facilitate wound healing and psychological adjustment, restore functional mobility, and develop the range-of-motion and strength needed to eventually walk with a prosthesis.

Few physical therapists have the opportunity to participate in clinical training experiences specifically focused on amputation rehabilitation and no evidence-based clinical practice guidelines have been developed to guide practice. These factors make it difficult for clinicians to stay abreast of best practice standards for this population. The purpose of this course is to provide physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with current evidence-based concepts for hospital-based rehabilitation of people with lower limb amputations.

This basic level course focuses specifically on hospital-based rehabilitation, early mobility, and pre-prosthetic training. The course provides an introduction to basic information about lower limb amputation and progresses to more in-depth information regarding all systems relevant to amputation rehabilitation, with current evidence-based concepts for risk assessment and suggestions for early rehabilitation activities. Knowledge obtained through this course can be used by physical therapy professionals to improve the hospital-based care and clinical outcomes for people with lower limb amputations.

Item # Q3571  

This course will provide physical therapists and physical therapy assistants with a comprehensive overview of THA. At the end of this course the learner will be able to identify the anatomy of the hip as it pertains to THA, describe the most recent advances in surgical approaches for THA, and gain an improved understanding of how different types of prosthetic implants, methods of fixation, and surgical techniques influence the ability of patients to participate in rehabilitation and achieve the desired clinical goals for functional independence. Additionally the learner will be able to describe the role of PT both in the preoperative and postoperative phases for the patient undergoing THA and be able to describe an optimal rehabilitation program for these time periods based on current research. Clinical cases presented will facilitate the learner being able to select appropriate rehabilitative strategies following THA.
