Spina Bifida Through the Life Span: Management Considerations From Infancy to Adulthood
Presented by Alicia Fernandez-Fernandez, PT, DPT, PhD, CNT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2549Level: Introductory2 Hours
This course provides an overview of the management of children and adolescents with spina bifida, including current evidence for best practices in this patient population, as well as a discussion of challenges and health complications related to spina bifida in the adult age. We will review pathology, clinical presentation, current medical and surgical intervention approaches, and key precautions. We will also explore evidence-based therapeutic management in different life stages, with a focus on interventions that promote participation and functional gains. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Editor's Note: Regarding IL EITP credits, this course is awarded partial credit, .5 hours. Only a portion of the content reviewed directly addresses infants and toddlers 0-36 months of age.

Innovating for Improved Patient Outcomes: Combining Physical and Speech Therapy in the Aquatic Environment
Presented by Timothy Williams, PT, DPT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2559Level: Introductory2 Hours
This course will look at a novel treatment combining physical and speech therapy in the aquatic environment. A quick review of research on pediatric aquatic therapies and an outline of techniques, treatment, and implementation of a co-treat model will be included. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Evaluation of the Stiff Hand
Presented by Mike Szekeres, PhD (c), OT Reg (Ont.), CHT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2575Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Have a client with a stiff hand? This course will cover review the important clinical anatomy of the hand, the physiologic response to trauma, development of scar/adhesions, and most importantly – how to differentiate the structures that cause stiffness in the hand. This course is open captioned.

Assessment and Rehabilitation of the Unstable Elbow
Presented by Mike Szekeres, PhD (c), OT Reg (Ont.), CHT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2578Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will review the important anatomical structures for elbow stability, the assessment of these structures, and post surgical treatment options for therapists to consider. Specific instabilities will include posterolateral rotatory instability, posteromedial rotatory instability, and valgus elbow instability.

Boxing and Other Non-Traditional Modes Of Community-Based Exercise for Persons With Parkinson's Disease
Presented by Stephanie A. Combs-Miller, PT, Ph.D, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2535Level: Introductory2 Hours
Current evidence to date will be synthesized regarding community-based, non-traditional exercise programs for persons with Parkinson disease (PD). Exercise modes including boxing, dance, Tai Chi, and yoga will be discussed including information about how these approaches impact individuals with PD across the spectrum of disability from body structure and function through participation. A collaborative partnership between clinicians and fitness specialists within a community-based exercise program that encourages an interactive approach for ongoing support and access to services for patients will be introduced. Implications for clinical practice including implementation of principles, consultation and referral sources will be discussed. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.

Cognitive Impairment in Parkinson's Disease: Understanding the Problem and Unlocking the Solution to Freezing of Gait.
Presented by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2528Level: Advanced2 Hours
A select subgroup of persons with Parkinson's Disease (PD) experience the phenomena known as Freezing of Gait (FOG). People who experience FOG exhibit impairment in specific cognitive domains, including attentional control and conflict resolution1,2. These cognitive deficits are related to reduced mobility and quality of life. Understanding cognitive deficits and their relationship to mobility can yield insights into effective treatment. However, to date clinical interventions to arrest or reduce the frequency of FOG are largely transient or contrived – with limited carryover3. This presentation will help clinicians and educators alike understand the physiology of FOG, and cognitive impairments typical of PD in persons with and without FOG. The authors will present a two-fold approach to reducing falls and functional impairment from FOG: 1) rehabilitative- through restitutive dual task and cognitive training4,5,6; and 2) compensatory- through education (awareness and prioritization)7. Additionally, we will provide videotape case studies and specific examples of how to apply each approach and to translate this information into interventions that will improve cognition and FOG. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Parkinson's Disease and the Parkinsonisms: Differential Diagnostics and Treatment
Presented by Anne Kloos, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2527Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This presentation focuses on the key clinical signs and symptoms that differentiate idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD) from vascular parkinsonism and Parkinson plus syndromes. Participants will learn about best evidence for the physical therapy treatment of individuals with PD and Parkinson Plus syndromes and apply information to case studies. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is appropriate for the PT and PTA.
