Motor Learning Series
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3606Level: Introductory4 Hours
Participants will review the models of motor control and learning along with the supporting and contradictory evidence related to each model. Factors such as practice and feedback will be the focus of this course, and how therapists manipulate these factors to maximize motor learning and positive neuroplasticity/recovery. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

ALS in Acute Care: Taking the Fear Out of Hospitalizations
Presented by Jennifer Liu, PT, DPT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3521Level: Introductory2 Hours
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a complex diagnosis and this course discusses the implications ALS for physical therapy, especially in the hospital setting. The intent is to give physical therapists a better understanding of what they can do to decrease the fear and anxiety for both the patient and therapist. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Beyond Bed Exercise in the Acute Neurologic Population
Presented by Angela Rusher, PT, DPT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3523Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course provides therapists with the evidence supporting the use of mobility technology into treatment interventions of the neurologically involved patient in the acute care setting to improve patient outcomes with a safe patient handling interdisciplinary team approach. It will also highlight “low tech” interventions that help maximize trunk balance/control, as well as endurance to improve patient outcomes for discharge planning. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Balance Outcome Measures – Selection and Utilization
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3548Level: Introductory2 Hours
Balance is a common focus of rehabilitation intervention, and objective assessment of balance is critical for guiding intervention and demonstrating patient progress. An understanding of the basics of balance outcome measures, how to select them, and how to utilize them correctly will enhance therapists’ practice and patient outcomes. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Factors which Influence Motor Learning - Merging Psychological and Movement Science Evidence into Practice
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3500Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Rehabilitation professionals have long known that factors such as practice and feedback can impact motor learning in our patients and that how we manipulate these factors can either facilitate or obstruct motor learning and neuroplasticity. More recent research has elucidated the influence of psychological contribution to the optimization of motor learning, and this course will focus on cognitive, motivational and attentional variables, and how these may be utilized in the traditional motor learning paradigm to improve outcomes in rehabilitation. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Motor Control and Motor Learning: Incorporating the Fundamentals into Clinical Practice
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3498Level: Introductory2 Hours
Participants will review the models of motor control and learning along with the supporting and contradictory evidence related to each model. Factors such as practice and feedback will be the focus of this course, and how therapists manipulate these factors to maximize motor learning and positive neuroplasticity/recovery. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Treatment of Patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis in the Home Health Setting
Presented by Scott Rushanan, MS, OTR/L, MBA
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3501Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Background on ALS (i.e., pathophysiology, diagnosis, and signs), functional and cognitive impairments associated with the disease, as well as information on interventions from both practice-based evidence and evidence-b.ased practice will be discussed. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Utilization of Ankle Foot Orthoses in Patients with Neurological Dysfunction
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3489Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will provide participants with essential tools for determining appropriate orthotic management with an ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) based on detailed gait analysis. Evidence-based orthotic interventions will be presented and participants will have opportunities to see orthotic examples and practice application of information through video/paper cases. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Contemporary Guidelines for Exercise and Diabetes: Application to Physical Therapy Cases
Presented by Gina Pariser, PT, LDE, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3387Level: Introductory2 Hours
Physical activity is established as an important therapy in the prevention and management of diabetes and diabetes-related health comorbidities. This course reviews new guidelines related to physical activity for improving glucose control and cardiovascular health in people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and highlights ways to apply these guidelines in different physical therapy cases. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Functional Electrical Stimulation in Neurorehabilitation
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3393Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course provides a review of the principles of functional electrical stimulation (FES) and will identify and discuss the various uses of FES in the rehabilitation of persons with neurological injury or pathology. The course will focus on FES in the upper extremity, in gait, and as a means of facilitating exercises. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
