Physical Therapy Examination of the Vestibular System
Presented by Kathleen Kelley, PT, EdD, NCS
Live WebinarFri, Jan 11, 2019 at 12:00 pm EST
Course: #3285 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This presentation will describe and demonstrate common examinations for vestibular dysfunction in adults. Examinations will include Oculomotor control, VOR X 1, VOR X 2 and VORc assessment, and general standing balance and postural control assessment.

Treating Persistent Pain Without Medications
Presented by Jennifer Cumming, PT, MSPT, CLT, WCS
Recorded WebinarAudio
Course: #3210 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Persistent pain conditions are seen in all settings where clinicians practice. Knowing the mechanisms of persistent pain and centralized sensitization are an important step in formulating a plan of care for patients. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA and AT.

Physical Therapy Treatment of the Vestibular System
Presented by Kathleen Kelley, PT, EdD, NCS
Live WebinarFri, Jan 18, 2019 at 12:00 pm EST
Course: #3286 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This presentation will describe and demonstrate common treatments for vestibular dysfunction in adults. Treatment of dysfunctional oculomotor control, hypofunctioning VOR, and BPPV will be included.

Put Down the Drugs: Evidence-Based Interventions to Reduce Unwanted Behaviors with Dementia
Presented by Kathleen D. Weissberg, OTD, OTR/L
Recorded WebinarAudio
Course: #3072 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
PTs can apply evidence-based interventions to improve dementia care. This session reviews the etiology of common behaviors. Cognitive-emotion, multi-sensory, animal-assisted, and exercise interventions to reduce agitation are discussed as well as specific strategies for improving task-related engagement. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Gait Analysis Series: Examination and Interventions for Gait Recovery in Persons with Neurological Disorder
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3255 Level: Advanced4 Hours
This series consists of two courses, #3174 and #3175. Part 1 will build on the learner’s knowledge of normal gait kinematics and translate them into a comprehensive gait evaluation for patients with neurological disorders. Part 2 will use a comprehensive gait analysis as a foundation to create a plan of care with gait task-specific interventions for patients with neurological disorders.

Translation of Gait Analysis to Interventions for Gait Recovery in Persons with Neurological Disorder
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3175 Level: Advanced2 Hours
This webinar will use a comprehensive gait analysis as a foundation to create a plan of care with gait task-specific interventions. The webinar will highlight current literature on effective elements of gait retraining in the most common neurological diagnoses, as well as give examples of specific exercises, activities, and specific orthotic and assistive device interventions to remediate the specific gait deviations and limitations identified in the gait analysis. Learners will have the opportunity to utilize this knowledge by working through problem solving activities with actual patient cases (video based).

Why this test? Clinical Decision Making for Balance
Presented by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3185 Level: Advanced2 Hours
When faced with limited time, resources, space, or information – how do clinicians decide the most optimal collection of balance tests for each patient? To make the best decision, therapists must consider many factors. Are you using the best decision-making process when examining a patient with imbalance? A short list of what will be covered in this course includes clinical decision-making for an imbalance examination, including factors such as: diagnosis, prognosis, personality and effect (low self efficacy, depression, agitation), cognitive impairment, reimbursement, fear of falling, and many more, Listen-in and learn how to choose the most optimal screening tools and tests for each patient!

Comprehensive Gait Examination and Evaluation in Persons with Neurological Disorders
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3174 Level: Advanced2 Hours
This webinar will build on the learner’s knowledge of normal gait kinematics and translate them into a comprehensive gait evaluation for patients with neurological disorders. The concept of a comprehensive gait analysis, utilizing measures and tools beyond basic observational gait analysis, will be outlined, along with the concept of hypothesis-driven examination and evaluation for gait. Learners will have the opportunity to utilize this knowledge by working through problem-solving activities with actual patient cases (video based).

The Skill That Connects Us: PT, OT, SLP: The Latest Applications of Dual Task Testing and Training
Presented by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3183 Level: Advanced2 Hours
Why are some movements "automatic", processed without direct and consistent conscious control, or even resistant to environmental distractions? How do movements become automatic in the unimpaired learner and begin again in those with brain injury or other impairment? In this course, we will review, APPLY, and ADVANCE the science of procedural learning (regaining automatic function) in gait, speech, ADL, athletics and more! We will review how the best applications of dual-task facilitate the transfer of experiences into procedural memories. Additionally, attendees will get a sneak peek into the emerging world of Dual Task Fitness, for the benefit of fall prevention, ADL, speech for those with fall risk, MCI, concussion, some PD, MS, ALS, and stroke.

Fabrication of a Training AFO
Presented by Jennifaye V. Brown, PhD, PT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3119 Level: Advanced2 Hours
Research indicated that in inpatient rehab "The largest percentage of time in physical therapy sessions was spent on gait activities" (Jette, et al., Physical Therapy, 2005; 85(3): 238-248, p. 241). Ankle foot orthotics (AFOs) are not issued in inpatient rehab due to the costs and interim interventions such as stabilizing the foot with an ace bandage are not adequate. Facilities do not have access to pre-fabricated AFOs or electrical stimulation units now being used as walking aides to replace AFOs. Focused rigidity casting is widely used in the orthopedic population and can be applied to the neurologic population. This course will provide insight on the use of focused rigidity casting to fabricate training an AFO. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
