Manual Wheelchair Mobility: Self-Propulsion
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarText/Transcript
Course: #4176Level: Introductory1 Hour
Most manual wheelchairs are designed for self-propulsion and fall into categories. This course systematically explores each category with clinical indicators, as well as optimal frame configuration to increase propulsion efficiency and reduce the risk of repetitive stress injury.

FERPA: Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
Presented by PJ Winters, EdD
Recorded WebinarAudioText/Transcript
Course: #4137Level: Introductory1 Hour
An overview of FERPA including practical advice regarding the regulation of FERPA by LEAs and how this federal law affects your practice in service to schools.

Dependent Mobility Intervention
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarAudioText/Transcript
Course: #4102Level: Introductory1 Hour
Dependent mobility devices are not designed for self-propulsion. These include adaptive strollers, transport chairs, tilt-in space manual wheelchairs, reclining manual wheelchairs, and standard manual wheelchairs. For very small children, adaptive strollers are often required to meet positional and dependent mobility needs. Other dependent mobility bases, such as transport chairs and standard wheelchairs, are used for quick trips or for temporary use. Clients may also use a dependent mobility base as a backup to a power wheelchair. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Augmented Mobility Intervention
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarAudioText/Transcript
Course: #4107Level: Introductory1 Hour
Augmented mobility is used with clients who require assistance in ambulation. This category of equipment includes walking canes, crutches, walkers, and gait trainers. Augmented mobility is used to prevent falls, increase mobility, and provide strengthening and dynamic weight-bearing. This course will systematically present each of these options with clinical indicators. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Matching Products to Seating Needs
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarAudioText/Transcript
Course: #4099Level: Introductory1 Hour
Once the wheelchair seating assessment has been completed and seating interventions considered, it is time to match specific client needs to product interventions. This course presents various categories of seating systems. Seating systems, whether linear, contoured, or molded, are comprised of primary support surfaces, secondary support components, and materials. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Durable Medical Equipment for Activities of Daily Living
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarAudioText/Transcript
Course: #4112Level: Introductory1 Hour
Clients who use wheelchair seating and mobility equipment often have other durable medical equipment (DME) needs, as well. Durable medical equipment is often used to assist activities of daily living and so clinicians are active participants in selecting the appropriate equipment for a client’s needs. This course will address bath/shower equipment, toileting equipment, patient lifts, and adaptive car seats. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Justifying Medical Necessity in Documentation: Screens to Skilled Services
Presented by Neely Sullivan, MPT, CLT-LANA, CDP
Recorded WebinarText/Transcript
Course: #3973Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Providing excellent client-centered services depends on documentation that clearly illustrates the medical necessity of the client. Participants in this webinar will learn how to evaluate and articulate the medical necessity of their client, illustrate the complexity of their skills to support the necessity of your treatment plans, and recognize through examples what constitutes appropriate documentation. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Diabetes in Adults: Current Guidelines and Evidence
Presented by Sally Stillings, MA, PT, MPT, CHT
Recorded WebinarText/Transcript
Course: #3958Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course gives us an overview of diabetes in adults, discusses current perspectives and guidelines, and addresses its significance in PT practice. It also looks at some of the current literature that addresses the evidence for risk factors and interventions and to see how they may apply to our practices. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Tools to Optimize Quality Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care: Tackling Loneliness and Social Isolation
Presented by Kathleen D. Weissberg, OTD, OTR/L, CMDCP, CDP, OTR/L
Recorded WebinarAudioText/Transcript
Course: #3985Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This session will review practical and cost-effective strategies care providers can implement to impact these areas. Following the framework of person-centered care, providers will hear about meaningful and purposeful activity, sensory, technology, and wellness strategies they can implement to mitigate the potentially harmful effects of isolation. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Power Wheelchair Advanced Features
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarText/Transcript
Course: #3990Level: Advanced2 Hours
Power wheelchairs do far more than drive – the driving method can be used to navigate and control other features including Reverse, Speeds, Power Seating, or an Interfaced Assistive Technology device (i.e. a communication device). Power Wheelchairs can send Bluetooth signals to control devices such as tablets and smartphones. Finally, new SMART technologies are making power wheelchairs safer and more efficient for everyone. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
