Innovating for Improved Patient Outcomes: Combining Physical and Speech Therapy in the Aquatic Environment
Presented by Timothy Williams, PT, DPT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2559Level: Introductory2 Hours
This course will look at a novel treatment combining physical and speech therapy in the aquatic environment. A quick review of research on pediatric aquatic therapies and an outline of techniques, treatment, and implementation of a co-treat model will be included. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Supervising Assistants, Students, and Aides: Upholding Your Ethics in a Challenging Health Care Environment
Presented by Kathleen D. Weissberg, OTD, OTR/L, CMDCP, CDP, OTR/L
Recorded WebinarAudioText/Transcript
Course: #2545Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This presentation will review the definitions of supervision as well as APTA and AOTA guidance related to supervising assistants, students, and aides in various healthcare environments. Real examples of common supervisory ethical dilemmas from the field including the appropriate action steps to take in each one will be highlighted. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and occupational therapy and is therefore appropriate for PTs, PTAs, OTs and COTAs.

Boxing and Other Non-Traditional Modes Of Community-Based Exercise for Persons With Parkinson's Disease
Presented by Stephanie A. Combs-Miller, PT, Ph.D, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2535Level: Introductory2 Hours
Current evidence to date will be synthesized regarding community-based, non-traditional exercise programs for persons with Parkinson disease (PD). Exercise modes including boxing, dance, Tai Chi, and yoga will be discussed including information about how these approaches impact individuals with PD across the spectrum of disability from body structure and function through participation. A collaborative partnership between clinicians and fitness specialists within a community-based exercise program that encourages an interactive approach for ongoing support and access to services for patients will be introduced. Implications for clinical practice including implementation of principles, consultation and referral sources will be discussed. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.

Cognitive Impairment in Parkinson's Disease: Understanding the Problem and Unlocking the Solution to Freezing of Gait.
Presented by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT, CSST, FAPTA
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2528Level: Advanced2 Hours
A select subgroup of persons with Parkinson's Disease (PD) experience the phenomena known as Freezing of Gait (FOG). People who experience FOG exhibit impairment in specific cognitive domains, including attentional control and conflict resolution1,2. These cognitive deficits are related to reduced mobility and quality of life. Understanding cognitive deficits and their relationship to mobility can yield insights into effective treatment. However, to date clinical interventions to arrest or reduce the frequency of FOG are largely transient or contrived – with limited carryover3. This presentation will help clinicians and educators alike understand the physiology of FOG, and cognitive impairments typical of PD in persons with and without FOG. The authors will present a two-fold approach to reducing falls and functional impairment from FOG: 1) rehabilitative- through restitutive dual task and cognitive training4,5,6; and 2) compensatory- through education (awareness and prioritization)7. Additionally, we will provide videotape case studies and specific examples of how to apply each approach and to translate this information into interventions that will improve cognition and FOG. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Parkinson's Disease and the Parkinsonisms: Differential Diagnostics and Treatment
Presented by Anne Kloos, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2527Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This presentation focuses on the key clinical signs and symptoms that differentiate idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD) from vascular parkinsonism and Parkinson plus syndromes. Participants will learn about best evidence for the physical therapy treatment of individuals with PD and Parkinson Plus syndromes and apply information to case studies. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Physical Therapy Management of People With Advanced Parkinson's Disease
Presented by Kathryn Hendron, PT, DPT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2550Level: Intermediate2 Hours
In this presentation, we will summarize of the common motor and non-motor symptoms people in the later stages of Parkinson disease experience along with the related functional limitations and restrictions on participation. We will also provide an overview of treatment approaches, appropriate outcome measures, and resources for physical therapists treating people with advanced Parkinson disease. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

High Intensity Exercise: The Evidence and Application in Parkinson's Disease
Presented by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT, CSST, FAPTA
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2548Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Physical Therapy treatment for Parkinson's Disease is often oversimplified and defined as by one or two global approaches. This course will further the discussion of the various subtypes of Parkinson's Disease and explore the evidence supporting high intensity exercise in all forms of PD and Parkinsonism's. Strength, muscular endurance, cardiopulmonary endurance, balance and agility will be addressed as related to PD. We will provide videotape and case study application across 4 different classifications of Parkinson's Disease and reveal applicable treatment strategies within each.
