Core Competencies for Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation is organized by Motivations Inc. and will be held on Aug 15, 2020 at Osceola Regional Medical Center, Kissimmee, Florida, United States of America. Audience: Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, PT and OT Assistants, Speech Pathologists, Medical Social Workers, Rehabilitation Nurses, Psychologists and Vocational Counselors. CEU Credits: 8 hours or .8 Or 8 CEUs Course Summary: The interdisciplinary care and treatment of persons with TBI has been one of the most challenging endeavors in the fields of medical and vocational rehabilitation. The unique pathophysiology of traumatic injury can result in a complex interaction between cognitive, behavioral, and physical sequelae. These deficits impact training and generalization and may limit the effectiveness of traditional rehabilitation interventions if not systematically addressed. Interventions require a truly interdisciplinary approach to inpatient, outpatient, and community re-entry services. This course was designed to provide rehab professionals with the core competencies to address some of the unique cognitive and behavioral challenges of TBI. Emphasis has been placed on structuring all rehab interventions, regardless of discipline, to incorporate sound cognitive and behavioral management strategies in order to increase client awareness and to increase generalization of all interventions. Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to: • Describe the role of all team members in providing specialized rehab. • List at least three recommendations for the appropriate provision on in- and outpatient rehabilitation services for persons with brain injury. • Analyze the pathophysiology of traumatic and other acquired brain injuries. • Assess severity levels and recovery patterns as they relate to interventions • Explain the most common cognitive sequelae of acquired brain injury and their impact on recovery and rehabilitative interventions. • Discuss the most common behavioral and social sequelae of acquired brain injury and at least two strategies for management of confusion and agitation. • Compare the impact on families of persons with brain injury by identifying the stages of adjustment following ABI • Classify the most common physical complaints following acquired brain injury. • Define the professional competencies required of brain injury specialists, including advocacy, educator, and ability to justify clinical interventions to third parties.
Current Surgical and Rehabilitation Trends in the Advances of Joint Arthroplasty for the Shoulder, Hip and Knee (Sep, 2020)
Sep 12, 2020 | Hours 8 | USD $225 | Kissimmee, Florida
Current Surgical and Rehabilitation Trends in the Advances of Joint Arthroplasty for the Shoulder, Hip and Knee is organized by Motivations Inc. and will be held on Sep 12, 2020 at Osceola Regional Medical Center, Kissimmee, Florida, United States of America. Audience: Physical Therapists, Physical Therapy Assistants, Occupational Therapists, Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants, Athletic Trainers, and related healthcare professionals. CEU Credits: 8 hours or .8 Or 8 CEUs. Course Summary: This seminar explains surgery, from traditional to cutting edge techniques, in addition to evidence-based rehab and return to activity guidelines. The World Health Organization has coined the years 2000-2010 the “Bone and Joint Decade.’’ Joint Arthroplasty is expected to double by the year 2020. The rise in joint replacement surgery, coupled with advances in cutting edge surgical techniques such as Computer Assisted Surgery (CAS) and less invasive procedures, has allowed the Orthopedists the ability for precise alignment and sparing of tissue. The questions for us as therapists: Are we educationally ready to provide current and progressive rehabilitation for the rising joint replacement population? Joint replacement surgeries are on the rise and the patient today is quite different than the traditional patient we all learned about in school. With all these precautions and restrictions, the goal is to rehabilitate in order to dress, groom and perform self-care. Today, the “Baby Boomer” joint replacement patient has a much higher expectation of their rehabilitation provider. Today’s “Boomers” want to use their “new and bionic” prosthesis to get down on the floor and play with the grandkids, ski, golf and hike. The desire to remain active has rehab implications for therapists in all settings. Understanding modern technology and being able to confidently communicate to the patient is extremely important in the total care. This highly interactive seminar will provide the attendee the evidence-based knowledge to answer those often on-the-spot questions from our patients, such as “What should I not do?” Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to: • Explain at least 2 of the latest surgical joint replacement techniques with reference to computer assisted surgery, tissue sparring, resurfacing, and minimally invasive procedures in a client with joint dysfunction. • Explain at least 2 rehab implications as they apply to the latest orthopedic surgery for patient’s experiencing joint arthroplasty. • Describe at least 3 activities your “Boomer Patients” can do following their new joint • Summarize 2 evidence-based concepts related to the influence of CPM, NMES, &Pre-operative Therapy on patients after arthroplasty surgery • Select at least 3 fun and inter-active functional rehabilitation exercises that facilitate return of ROM, Gait and overall function in an effective/efficient manner for patientswith joint arthroplasty.
