Updated Strategies for Designing Exercise Therapy for the Older Adult Home Health Patient
Presented by Olaide Oluwole-Sangoseni, PT, PhD, DPT, MSc, GCS
Live WebinarFri, Aug 6, 2021 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #4135Level: Introductory2 Hours
Evidence-informed patient-centered care requires that home health physical therapists set achievable goals by avoiding the underdosing of exercise intensity for older adults. Patient-specific approaches to exercise prescriptions are cost-effective in reducing re-hospitalizations and promoting an early return to functional activities. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Presented by Kristen Cezat, PT, DPT, NCS, ATP/SMS
Live WebinarWed, Aug 11, 2021 at 2:00 pm EDT
Course: #4165Level: Advanced2 Hours
This course discusses current gait training evidence for clients with motor incomplete and motor complete spinal cord injury. High-intensity gait training, intervention selection for clients with motor complete and incomplete SCI, and assessing the effectiveness of interventions through the use of outcome measures are included. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Seating Considerations in the Home Health Setting
Presented by Sara Frye, MS, OTR/L, ATP
Live WebinarFri, Aug 13, 2021 at 12:00 pm EDT

We will discuss training techniques, drawbacks, considerations, and safety methods when integrating these devices for use in the older adult. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders in Women's Health Physical Therapy: Look For the Zebra
Presented by Cynthia Neville, PT, DPT, WCS, BCB-PMD
Live WebinarWed, Aug 18, 2021 at 6:00 pm EDT
Course: #4151Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Women with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD) have a high rate of pelvic floor disorders, and EDS and HSD are highly prevalent in women with pelvic health impairments. This course provides physical therapists with an evidence-based update on EDS, HSDs, and pelvic health and will explore clinical reasoning in pelvic physical therapy treatment for this diverse patient population. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

High Intensity Interval Training in Home Health: HIIT the Ground Running
Presented by Melissa Bednarek, PT, DPT, PhD, CCS, Kelly Lindenberg, PT, MSPT, PhD, CSCS, James Eng, PT, DPT, MS, Jason Woollard, PT, PhD
Live WebinarFri, Aug 20, 2021 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #4155Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This session discusses methods of assessment to appropriately quantify baseline aerobic capacity, tools, and technology that are available to ensure close monitoring of patient response to exercise and exercise prescription and implementation of a properly dosed HIIT program to promote cardiovascular adaptation. Using videos and interactive activities, presenters will demonstrate practical assessment and intervention strategies for endurance training in home health. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

This session addresses the key components of Age-Friendly Healthcare and how rehabilitation professionals can and should adopt these principles into every patient encounter to help aging adults focus on what matters most to them. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Wag Your Tail! Pelvic Floor Disorders and the Importance of the Coccyx
Presented by Cynthia Neville, PT, DPT, WCS, BCB-PMD
Live WebinarWed, Sep 8, 2021 at 6:00 pm EDT
Course: #4164Level: Intermediate2 Hours
MRI studies show that with the performance of correct pelvic floor muscle contraction, the coccyx should move cranially, and with adequate pelvic floor muscle relaxation, the coccyx should move causally. This course examines the importance of the coccyx to the function of the pelvic floor muscles, discusses how coccyx impairments may contribute to pelvic floor muscle disorders, and explore physical therapy treatment options for coccyx impairments. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

High Intensity Gait Training For Neurologic Clients: Bringing Evidence to the Clinic
Presented by Christina Voigtmann, PT, DPT, NCS
Live WebinarWed, Sep 15, 2021 at 2:00 pm EDT
Course: #4175Level: Introductory2 Hours
High intensity gait training (HIGT) is a hot topic among physical therapists who treat clients with neurologic injury and who have goals to improve their waking function. This course helps to define this intervention, review the literature, discuss barriers, compare the traditional approaches to HIGT delivery, and discuss ways to implement HIGT into practice. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
