Course Description: Psychiatry is one of the most challenging areas of medicine, secondary to the subjective nature of the specialty. As clinicians, we have no objective data to base our course of treatment on. Psychopharmacology and psychotherapy are our best options in terms of treatments and therapy is only successful if the patient is committed to attending every session, completing their homework, and willing to make the necessary life changes to improve their mental health. Medication can be very helpful in terms of alleviating mental health symptoms; however, choosing the right medication and/or combination of meds is crucial to achieving successful outcomes. Secondary to the psychiatry shortage, providers in other specialties find themselves treating mental health patients, which can present additional challenges. This course will arm attendees with a valuable update on the different classes of psychiatric medications and facilitate a deeper level of understanding in terms of how these medications work on their respective neurotransmitters and how they work in conjunction with one another. It is uncommon for mental health patients to be on only one medication, as a combination of medications is often required to reach the desired level of improvement. After this course, you will be able to identify effective medication regimens for patients based on their psychiatric history and presenting symptoms, ultimately contributing to quality of life improvements in patients with mental health conditions. Learner Objectives: • Recognize ways to conceptualize psychiatric symptomatology outside the box. • Evaluate common medical conditions that you may inadvertently diagnose as psychiatric in nature. • Analyze the 4 main neurotransmitters and how their imbalance influences different psychiatric disorders. • Compare efficacy of the newer class of serotonin modulators to the other widely-used antidepressant classes. • Examine frequently asked questions regarding the impact of alcohol and marijuana for patients taking psychotropic medications. • Learn strategic ways to customize treatment plans based on your patient's individual needs.

Audience: PT. PTA, OT, SPT Attendees agree to utilize all skills of evaluation, assessment and treatment learned in this course to the extent allowed under the regulations of their professional practice act. By registering you acknowledge that your attendance does not represent authorization by the IPA, or any of its officers, to utilize any of the material learned which may lie outside of the strict interpretation of your practice act. Course Purpose: Many aspects of function are impeded by motor control problems that are reflected in a patient’s gait and rolling patterns. The skill to observe and then affect a positive impact on a patient’s gait dysfunction is a powerful tool in the total rehabilitation of both orthopedic and neurological patients. Building on the foundational skills learned in other IPA courses,Functional Gait emphasizes component assessment and the governing structural and motor control factors which influence each component. Each gait component is self-evaluated,assessed by two partners, and then treated using PNF, CFS®, and FM treatment strategies. Course Objectives: By the end of the course, the participant will demonstrate through small group discussion monitored by the instructor the ability to identify: • The biomechanical principal which govern gait • The mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control impairments which can alter efficient gait • The functional interrelationship of the body's systems and regions necessary for efficient gait By the end of course, the participant will demonstrate the manual and visual skills necessary to accurately: • Analyze gait dysfunctions in lab partners or on video The participant will develop the manual and observational skills to: • Assess the mechanical impairments contributing to the identified inefficient gait • Assess the neuromuscular CoreFirst strategies necessary to perform efficient gait • Perform appropriate mobilization and re-education treatment to facilitate a more efficient gait pattern By the end of the course, participant will demonstrate, through supervised lab practice sessions, the ability to perform appropriate manual skills of mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control treatment to correct any identified gait dysfunctions in lab partners. By the end of the course, the participant will demonstrate, in supervised lab practice sessions the ability to instruct the patient in an appropriate home program. Throughout the course, the participant will participate in guided discussions related to the current evidence for Gait assessment and treatment.
