  • Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders in Occupational Therapy Practice, 2nd edition 4
    This basic-level course is designed to increase occupational therapy practitioners’ knowledge and understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders and to provide an overview of medical management of these disorders. The second part of the course focuses on occupational therapy screening and evaluation of and intervention for older adults with neurocognitive disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease. Although written for occupational therapy professionals, this course also informs medical and behavioral health professionals who work in acute and long-term care, institutional, home-based, or community settings about the role and unique contributions of occupational therapists on the interprofessional healthcare team.
  • Cancer Rehabilitation Across the Lifespan 2
    Occupational therapy practitioners encompass a wealth of knowledge and skill to decrease the burden of cancer on oncology clients. Evidence to support this is emerging. Silver and Gilchrist (2011) remind us that “evidence-based care is the cornerstone of optimal treatment, and with oncology rehabilitation still in its infancy, there is much work to be done” (p. S12). It is this aim, as well as that of the American Occupational Therapy Association’s (AOTA) Vision 2025, that guides the content of this course in linking evidence, well-being, and quality of life during and following cancer treatment for diverse communities (AOTA, 2017a). The primary purpose of this course is to promote competence and confidence in the utilization of evidence-based occupational therapy services to this emerging and underserved population. Using the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain and Process, 3rd edition (AOTA, 2014) as a mechanism to negotiate through the occupational therapy process, an introductory overview of common cancer diagnoses, treatment, and rehabilitation implications throughout the continuum of care will be provided. Evidence-based, client-centered evaluation and intervention recommendations will be emphasized while providing participants with the knowledge and resources required for best practice in oncology rehabilitation. This basic-level course will be a stepping-stone to align evidence-based recommendations to clinical application specific to the emerging and complex field of oncology rehabilitation for occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants.
  • Concussion Management: A Comprehensive Evidence-Based Approach 2
    Concussion most commonly occurs during sports-related activities. The purpose of this intermediate-level course is to provide an overview of concussion with areas to assess and treat for the occupational therapy practitioner.  Current evidence-based references are highlighted along with topics widely accepted in practice. This course is for practitioners who have a basic knowledge of brain injury and want to advance their skills in the assessment and treatment of concussion.
  • Ethical Practices with Older Adults, Revised Updated 1st Edition- OT 3
    The number of older adults (age 65 and older) living in the United States is growing rapidly. Almost 60 million older adults were living in the United States in 2016. This number is projected to rise to over 72 million by 2030, when approximately one in five U.S. residents will be age 65 or older. The rapid growth of the older population results from multiple factors including medical advances, life-prolonging technologies, and the aging of the Baby Boom generation (whose members began turning 65 years old in 2011). 
    In coming years, healthcare professionals will face this aging of the population, along with the accompanying health and economic challenges. The purpose of this course is to highlight ethical issues that may confront healthcare and behavioral health professionals working with older adults and their families as these individuals near the end of life. Many of these issues are related to advances in medical technologies that have occurred over the past several decades (and that continue to be developed) and have led to increasingly complex choices. The course will provide background on ethical frameworks and principles used in healthcare settings for guidance in resolving ethical problems. This course will also identify major ethical issues concerning older adults and healthcare decisions and provide a model for addressing ethical dilemmas in healthcare settings. 
    This basic-level course is written for healthcare professionals, including nurses, social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, occupational and physical therapy practitioners, and respiratory therapists. Other healthcare professionals who work with older adults and on interdisciplinary teams will also find the information presented useful to their practice.
  • Multidimensional Functional Assessment of the Older Adult, 2nd Edition 3
    The purpose of this basic level course is to enable occupational therapy practitioners and other rehabilitation professionals to understand and assess functional performance in older adults using a multidimensional approach. This is an introductory course for practitioners who are new to this population or who desire a refresher on the most current evidence related to functional assessment of older adults.
  • Suicide Awareness and Prevention 4
    This intermediate-level course will provide occupational therapy practitioners with the information necessary to identify those at risk and those demonstrating symptoms associated with suicidal precursors and will help to describe the role of occupational therapy practitioners working across practice settings including approaches to assessment, intervention, and referral.   
  • Understanding Posttraumatic Stress Disorder 6
    This basic-level course provides an overview of PTSD for occupational therapy practitioners working in a variety of roles and settings. This course addresses basic information regarding PTSD, including; DSM-5 diagnostic criteria, etiology, incidence, risk factors, interventions, and treatment methods. With distinct mental health training and education targeting occupational performance, occupational therapy practitioners are integral to the interdisciplinary team for those at risk for or diagnosed with PTSD and their families (American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA, 2015c). Unique historical perspectives, assessment, and treatment practices specific to occupational therapy will be presented.
