Home Health Therapy: Using OASIS

Price: $29.95 
Item # Q3514  

Release Date: May 16, 2017

Expiration Date: May 16, 2020

Home health care is the fastest growing industry in the United States based upon the projection period of 2014 to 2024. The demand and competition for licensed rehabilitation therapists to work in home health care is, and will be, great. Therapists currently working in or planning to work in home health agencies must have an understanding of the significance of process and outcomes measurement. The Outcome and ASsessment Information Set (OASIS) is a specific assessment and outcomes measurement instrument that consists of 111 items or questions and measures patient data at various times during the patient’s stay in home care. Mandated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, OASIS data must be collected on patients with Medicare and Medicaid at various times during a patient’s stay in home care. Therapists must be aware of the time sensitive and accuracy requirements related to documentation, OASIS updates, and the level of compliance and denials their agency experiences. Feedback related to documentation compliance and any denials will help therapists to refine and improve utilization of the tool for both improved patient outcomes and optimum reimbursement. The purpose of this basic-level course is to provide home healthcare physical and occupational therapists  and speech language pathologists  with the information they need to understand the significance and importance of effectively using the OASIS instrument in order to deliver comprehensive, compassionate, patient-focused, and cost-sensitive skilled services in the home environment. The home health therapist will be able to use the OASIS information provided in this course to create a basis for the plan of care, to measure the patient’s progress in meeting the established home healthcare goals, and to meet the regulatory requirements for quality reporting and reimbursement. By completing this course, therapists new to the home health setting will gain knowledge needed to begin working with the OASIS tool as part of an orientation in delivering certified home health therapy and overall care. The experienced home health therapist will find opportunities to review, reinforce, revise, and refine or expand their working knowledge of the OASIS requirements and to grow in understanding the professional implications of practicing in this complex and challenging healthcare setting. This course focuses on OASIS-C2, the most recent update to OASIS, which went into effect January 1, 2017.

Promoting Healthy Aging for the Older Adult

Price: $49.95 
Item # Q3543  

Release Date: July 18, 2017

Expiration Date: July 18, 2020

The demographic changes of the United States have created an urgent need for more healthcare professionals educated in the care of older adults. The U.S. Census Bureau projects that by the year 2050, 89 million Americans will be 65 years of age or older. In fact, 20% of older adults will represent the U.S. population by 2030.  According to the AOA, adults aged 65 and older will outnumber children 5 years of age and younger in the years to come. This rapidly aging population is challenging the health care system to come up with ways to meet the needs of older adults and set the stage for developing a healthier society.

This basic-level course is designed to assist healthcare professionals in encouraging, teaching, and guiding older adults to actively practice healthy lifestyles. This course allows healthcare professionals that work with older adults to gain additional knowledge in geriatrics and be able to provide satisfactory care to improve outcomes for older adults. Healthcare professionals will be able to recognize the needs of older adult clients and develop person-centered plans to support optimal living and promote healthy aging. Additionally, this course will set the stage for developing a healthier society for all to age well and successfully.

Lumbar Spinal Stenosis: A Comprehensive Review for Rehabilitation Professionals, Updated 1st Edition

Price: $24.95 
Item # Q3502  

Release Date: February 16, 2016

Expiration Date: February 16, 2019

Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) refers to narrowing of the lower spinal canal or one or more lumbar vertebral foramina.  This condition can cause compression of the neurological structures in the spine, leading to low back pain and radicular symptoms. The prevalence of LSS increases with age and is most commonly due to degenerative changes in older adults. Treatment options for individuals with lumbar spinal stenosis include non-operative care such as physical therapy, medication and injections, and surgery.  In recent decades, the fastest growth in lumbar surgery in the United States has occurred in older patients with spinal stenosis.  

A physical therapy program for LSS, including patient education, exercise and manual therapy interventions, is usually indicated for mild to moderate cases before surgical intervention is proposed. When identified early, lumbar spinal stenosis is thought to respond well to physical therapy treatment that uses flexion-based exercises and patient education to manage symptoms, potentially delaying or avoiding the need for costly surgical intervention. Physical therapy appears to be beneficial for patients with LSS, however there is a lack of clear treatment guidelines and prognostic indicators for this approach.   

This basic level course provides a comprehensive overview of lumbar spinal stenosis, examining both conservative and surgical aspects of care.  The course presents an overview of lumbar spinal anatomy and neurogenic pain patterns and examines the etiologies and types of lumbar spinal stenosis.  In addition, the course discusses the physical therapy examination, outcome measures, and offers specific examples of physical therapy interventions thought to be essential to the management of this common disorder.

Introduction to Wheelchair Seating and Positioning: Considerations in Occupational & Physical Therapy Practice

Price: $29.95 
Item # Q3499  

Expiration Date: February 3, 2019

This course provides the occupational and physical therapy practitioner with a broad overview of the assessment and provision of wheelchair seating. This course is written at a basic-to-intermediate level for the occupational or physical therapist that has little or no experience in this specialized practice area. Many people require the use of a wheelchair for dependent or independent mobility, and each wheelchair provides some form of seating. Wheelchair seating directly affects a client’s position which, in turn, affects function for all of that person’s daily tasks.  It is essential that occupational and physical therapists be able to competently participate as a member of the team in determining the optimal seating and wheeled mobility interventions for a particular client. Common diagnoses that a client using a wheelchair may have include cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, and muscular dystrophies. 

This course systematically reviews wheelchair seating considerations, beginning with assessment. A key part of seating assessment is the mat examination, which helps determine where and at what angles a client needs postural support for optimal alignment, pressure distribution and relief to prevent the development of pressure ulcers. Body positioning is critical; the body should be positioned to support the task that needs to be accomplished. Clients often must find both a position of rest and a position suitable for functional or task performance within the same seating system. The course explores available seating system categories and materials and describes specific seating challenges, including their causes, goals, and suggested interventions.
