Advanced Clinical Reasoning for Pediatric Upper Extremity Conditions is organized by Rehab Education and will be held from Oct 12 - 13, 2019 at Marlton, New Jersey, United States of America. Who Should Attend: • Occupational Therapists • Physical Therapists • Certified Hand Therapists Accreditation: Physical Therapy Board of California: The Physical Therapy Board of California recognizes Rehab Education, LLC as an approval agency to approve providers offering continuing competency courses for CA licensed PTs and PTAs. This course is approved for 13 contact hours. Physical Therapy Association of Georgia: This course has been approved by the Physical Therapy Association of Georgia for 13 Continuing Competency Hours (CCHs) (Course must be taken between 10-12-2018 and 10-14-2019) New Jersey State Board of Physical Therapy Examiners: This course has been approved by the New Jersey State Board of Physical Therapy Examiners for 13 continuing education credits, Approval #1809-09. (Course must be taken between 02-1-2018 and 01-31-2020). Texas Board of Physical Therapy Examiners: This course has been approved by the Texas Board of Physical Therapy Examiners as meeting continuing education requirements for PTs and PTAs for 13 CCUs. Approval #62939TX. (Course must be taken between 10-27-2017 and 10-27-2019) Course Description: Analyzing these conditions requires a good knowledge of development, anatomy and biomechanics to understand the underlying problems. In order to help the therapist plan and focus treatment, this course will outline a clinical problem solving framework that includes identifying the systems involved (skin, fascia, muscle, tendon, nerve, bone), defining the primary limiting factor(s), noting the developmental ramifications and addressing the resulting functional deficits. Course Objectives : At the end of the course, the attendee will • Identify at least one of the systems that may be contributing to the primary limiting factor for a given pediatric upper extremity condition. • Identify the primary limiting factor for 3 given pediatric upper extremity conditions. • Demonstrate 2 soft tissue and/or neuro-mobilization techniques that would be appropriate for a pediatric patient with upper extremity limitations. • Demonstrate 2 movement strategies (proximal handling techniques, developmental positions, or composite motor patterns) to help gain distal motion in upper extremity conditions. • List 2 treatment techniques that would be appropriate to utilize for a patient with distal hand problems (i.e. thumb in palm deformity, camptodactyly, clinodactyly). • Identify 3 ways to address persistent pain in a pediatric patient Required pre-requisites: attendance at Pediatric Hand Therapy and Orthotic Intervention (Splinting) for Musculoskeletal Conditions OR current experience with common pediatric hand conditions and a good working knowledge of UE anatomy. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
Sensory Systems: The Effect on Postural Control … Understanding and Incorporating Sensory Strategies in NDT Treatment (Oct 26 - 27, 2019)
Oct 26 - 27, 2019 | CEUs 1.50 | USD $495 | Marlton, New Jersey
Sensory Systems: The Effect on Postural Control … Understanding and Incorporating Sensory Strategies in NDT Treatment is organized by Motivations Inc. and will be held from Oct 26 - 27, 2019 at Weisman Children's Hospital and Outpatient Rehabilitation Center, Marlton, New Jersey, United States of America. Target Audience: A course for Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Assistants, and Speech Language Pathologists (Some familiarity with NDT handling is helpful) CEU Credits: This is a 15-hour course equivalent to 1.5 CEUs. Course Summary: Client function and participation can be severely impaired when the sensory systems are not functioning optimally. Children that have neuropsychiatric or neuromuscular impairment may have postural control issues that are compounded by sensory system dysfunction. This intermediate level course using the NDT problem-solving approach will contain lecture, treatment videos and live demonstration treatment to illustrate potential presentation, and subsequent treatment strategies for sensory system dysfunction. This course is for OT’s, PT’s, SLP’s and their assistants that work with children that have delayed development or neuromuscular system impairment. Participants will improve their clinical decision making skills by analyzing the complex inter-relationship of function, multi-system behaviors, and single system integrities when working with children who have posture and movement dysfunction. The importance of understanding the role of the cerebellum, the sensory systems and postural control will be emphasized. The details of blending of the sensory systems and NDT handling strategies will be emphasized. Various video examples and discussion will be utilized to integrate this information. These CEU's can also be used toward NDTA re-certification. Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to: • Identify the significant role(s) of the Cerebellum for analysis of treatment. • Identify and describe sensory system contributions to the posture and movement systems. • Describe 3 specific treatment strategies that address the visual, vestibular & somatosensory systems simultaneously. • Identify the difference between ocular motor impairment and CVI. • Identify 3 specific treatment strategies: vision, vestibular, somatosensory.
