Course: #2810Level: Intermediate2 Hours 461 Reviews
Recorded Webinar

Concomitant psychiatric diagnoses in patients treated by physical therapy are increasingly common. Rehabilitation outcomes can be hindered, enhanced or merely complicated by medically necessary psychotropic drug treatment. This course will investigate the complexities of pharmacological interaction with physical rehabilitation for patients with psychiatric disorders from mild depression to more complex mental health issues in order to optimize outcomes for both. This course is directly related to the practice of physical and occupational therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT, PTA, OT and OTA.

Editor's Note: Regarding Pennsylvania credits, this course is approved by the PA State Board of Physical Therapy for 2 hours of general CE credit from 10/28/2017-12/31/2018.
