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.

Treatment of Patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis in the Home Health Setting
Presented by Scott Rushanan, MS, OTR/L, MBA
Live WebinarFri, Aug 23, 2019 at 12:00 pm EDT
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.

Motor Control and Motor Learning: Incorporating the Fundamentals into Clinical Practice
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Live WebinarWed, Sep 11, 2019 at 2:00 pm EDT
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.

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.

Factors which Influence Motor Learning - Merging Psychological and Movement Science Evidence into Practice
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Live WebinarWed, Sep 18, 2019 at 2:00 pm EDT
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.

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.

Endurance Assessment and Intervention
Presented by Pamela Bartlo, PT, DPT, CCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3404Level: Intermediate2 Hours
It is important to assess a patient's endurance and then provide interventions to improve it. It is not enough to just say someone has decreased endurance. We need to quantify it and progress it. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Advances in the Rehabilitation and Medical Management of the Concussed Athlete
Presented by James Chesnutt, MD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3340Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will review current knowledge and issues regarding concussion diagnosis and management. I will highlight a multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation of concussed patients with a focus on balance issues and early rehabilitation and exercise as a treatment modality. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA and AT.

Series: Physical Therapy Examination and Treatment of the Vestibular System
Presented by Kathleen Kelley, PT, EdD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3338Level: Intermediate4 Hours
This series will describe and demonstrate common examinations and treatment for vestibular dysfunction in adults. Examination and treatment of dysfunctional oculomotor control, hypofunctioning VOR, and BPPV will be included.

Editor's Note: Regarding Pennsylvania credits, this course is approved by the PA State Board of Physical Therapy for 2.5 hours of general and 1.5 hours of Direct Access CE credit.
