  • Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias: Medical Overview and Rehabilitation Management, 2nd ed 4
    The purpose of this course is to provide useful, pragmatic information to rehabilitation therapists to facilitate successful rehabilitation for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Too often, those with dementia are excluded from rehabilitation opportunities based on the assumption that they will not benefit, or they are given a brief trial of rehabilitation that does not take into consideration the special needs of this population and, as a result, they do not make gains. This course will provide an overview of Alzheimer’s disease and its medical management, practical information on optimal interactions with individuals who have Alzheimer’s disease, research findings related to motor learning in this population, existing evidence on rehabilitation with individuals with dementia, and strategies to facilitate successful outcomes. 
  • Conservative and Surgical Management of the Osteoarthritic Hand and Wrist 5
    This intermediate-level course provides physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with a detailed overview of the pathophysiology and mechanics of the joints of the hand of those diagnosed with OA. The course offers practitioners in-depth knowledge of several of the most common medical and evidence-based practices and provides instruction for technique application in physical therapy examination and evaluation, as well as intervention.
  • Conservative and Surgical Management of the Osteoarthritic Hand and Wrist, 2nd Edition 5
    This intermediate-level course provides physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with a detailed overview of the pathophysiology and mechanics of the joints of the hand of those diagnosed with OA. The course offers practitioners in-depth knowledge of several of the most common medical and evidence-based practices and provides instruction for technique application in physical therapy examination and evaluation, as well as intervention.
  • Evidence-Based Management of Knee Osteoarthritis 4
    The purpose of this intermediate level course is to provide physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with up-to date, evidence-based information pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of knee OA. Although this course will be most applicable to physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who work with older individuals in outpatient settings, the increased incidence of OA makes the information in this course relevant to therapists in a variety of settings. Even therapists who specialize and treat patients in areas other than orthopaedic settings will likely encounter individuals whose OA affects their participation, mobility, or function.
  • Examination and Management of the Client With Parkinson's Disease, 2nd Edition 5
    The purpose of this  course is to provide licensed practitioners with information concerning the current state of medical errors, the impact of medical errors on the safety of patients, and the importance of establishing and working in a culture of safety. Contributing causes and types of medical errors are reviewed. Strategies to reduce or prevent medical errors and improve patient outcomes are presented. Methods to identify, analyze, and report medical errors are reviewed, populations at risk for medical errors are identified, and patient safety initiatives including education for the public and healthcare professionals are explored. 
  • Exercise Prescription Management of the Older Adult: An Evidence-Based Approach, 2nd Edition 5
    This intermediate level course is designed to educate PTs and PTAs on the implementation of exercise prescriptions in older adults. This course will review the multiple age-related systemic changes that take place in the cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine and musculoskeletal systems and describe how exercise may mitigate these changes. This course will also provide recommended exercise prescriptions according to the most recent American College of Sports Medicine guidelines for older adults and discuss common barriers for exercise participation in older adults.
  • Osteoarthritis of the Hip: Rehabilitation and Treatment Strategies, 2nd Edition 4
    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.
  • Preventing Falls in Older Adults 5
    An older adult falls every second of every day, with more than 29 million falls occurring in 2014, resulting in more than 7 million injuries. This intermediate-level course provides healthcare professionals in the areas of physical and occupational therapy with the knowledge they need to successfully identify those at risk for falls, assess individuals, and develop interventions targeted at reducing fall risk in older adults. Although therapists may be aware of the need to assess and treat older adults for risk for falls, they may not be fully abreast of approaches that are supported by evidence and are proven to truly reduce the incidence of falls. 
  • Total Hip Arthroplasty: Current Concepts in Pre- and Postsurgical Physical Therapy 4
    This intermediate-level course provides physical therapists and physical therapy assistants with a comprehensive overview of total hip arthroplasty (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.
