A 2-hour intermediate continuing education course for clinicians interested in strengthening their knowledge and skills in the screening examination of the integumentary system. Clinical decision-making concepts and integumentary conditions will be reinforced and applied in a primary care approach to physical therapist examination that can be seamlessly integrated into inpatient, outpatient, and wellness-based physical therapist practices. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
