Common Chronic Health Conditions Associated With Aging

Price: $29.95 
Item # Q3544  

Release Date: July 18, 2017

Expiration Date: July 18, 2020

This basic-level course is designed to assist healthcare professionals in encouraging, teaching, and guiding older adults with chronic conditions to practice healthy lifestyles. This course explores common chronic conditions associated with aging, and discusses how healthcare professionals can help older adults manage these conditions and enhance health. Included is a look at the emotional effects of coping with loss, disability, and chronic conditions. Depression and bereavement are described, along with the stages of grief and methods of distinguishing among them. Because the incidence of cancer increases with age, preventive cancer screening and prevention guidelines for older adults are presented. Prevention, treatment of, and coping with such common problems as hearing loss, hypertension, and incontinence are also discussed. Because stroke, arthritis, and osteoporosis all have the potential to negatively affect functional status, these conditions are also reviewed to help promote healthy aging.

It is rare for an older adult to live a long life without any of the concerns presented in this chapter. Memory problems are discussed, including differentiating between normal aging changes and cognitive impairment. By taking preventive measures and practicing positive health habits, fewer older adults will face these issues. The information presented in this course is designed to help healthcare professionals guide older adults to a healthy lifestyle.

Concussion Management: A Comprehensive Evidence-Based Approach for the Physical Therapist

Price: $39.95 
Item # Q3519  

Release Date: September 19, 2017

Expiration Date: September 19, 2020

This intermediate course is designed for practicing physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who work with individuals with acute and chronic concussion. This course will be most beneficial for the clinician who has a basic knowledge of concussion and concussion management, but has not recently reviewed the current literature in concussion care that includes the significant changes in the classification of concussion and the approach to diagnosis that considers the complexity of concussion and the need for individualized patient centered care.

Ethical Practices with Older Adults, Revised Updated 1st Edition

Price: $29.95 
Item # Q3567  

Release Date: February 7, 2018

Expiration Date: February 7, 2021

The number of older adults (age 65 and older) living in the United States is growing rapidly. Almost 60 million older adults were living in the United States in 2016. This number is projected to rise to over 72 million by 2030, when approximately one in five U.S. residents will be age 65 or older. The rapid growth of the older population results from multiple factors including medical advances, life-prolonging technologies, and the aging of the Baby Boom generation (whose members began turning 65 years old in 2011).
 
In coming years, healthcare professionals will face this aging of the population, along with the accompanying health and economic challenges. The purpose of this course is to highlight ethical issues that may confront healthcare and behavioral health professionals working with older adults and their families as these individuals near the end of life. Many of these issues are related to advances in medical technologies that have occurred over the past several decades (and that continue to be developed) and have led to increasingly complex choices. The course will provide background on ethical frameworks and principles used in healthcare settings for guidance in resolving ethical problems. This course will also identify major ethical issues concerning older adults and healthcare decisions and provide a model for addressing ethical dilemmas in healthcare settings.
 
This basic-level course is written for healthcare professionals, including nurses, social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, occupational and physical therapy practitioners, and respiratory therapists. Other healthcare professionals who work with older adults and on interdisciplinary teams will also find the information presented useful to their practice.

Examination and Management of the Client With Parkinson's Disease, 2nd Edition

Price: $39.95 
Item # Q3533  

Release Date: October 11, 2017

Expiration Date: October 11, 2020

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most prevalent neurodegenerative disorder (after Alzheimer’s disease), impacting approximately 1 million individuals in the United States, with 60,000 new cases diagnosed each year. Many physical therapists (PTs) enter the field with a broad understanding of neurologic rehabilitation, but lack specific training in the differential diagnosis, examination, and management of clients with Parkinson’s disease. Current research in the physical therapy management of individuals with Parkinson’s disease is quite robust, resulting in an ever-changing field of practice in response to new research findings. Therapists might lack information regarding the most valid diagnostic tests and measures, and the most current evidence-based treatment techniques. Recent studies have developed new assessment techniques such as the Balance Evaluation Systems Test (BESTest) and shorter versions called the Mini-BESTest, as well as the Brief-BESTest. Although it has been well established that physical therapy is beneficial for people with PD, evidence on best treatments is still growing.                                                    

This Intermediate course is designed to provide physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with the information needed to appropriately examine and treat the client with PD, including differential diagnosis of individuals who exhibit signs and symptoms indicative of PD. In addition, the learner will be able to manage clients with PD by designing a comprehensive treatment program based on the use of appropriate outcome measures. Equipped with the most current evidence, the learner will be able to discuss and critically evaluate interventions directed at the specific body structure and function, activity, and participation deficits associated with PD.

Examination and Treatment of Peripheral Vestibular Disorders

Price: $39.95 
Item # Q3517  

Release Date: December 15, 2017

Expiration Date: Dcember 15, 2020

Vestibular disorders are common in the adult population, affecting a vast number of persons over 40 years of age, with increased prevalence of vestibular dysfunction occurring with advancing age. The vestibular system is a highly specialized sensory apparatus that integrates information regarding head movement and position relative to gravity with information from the visual and somatosensory systems to mediate upright posture, postural control, and gaze stabilization. Given the highly specialized nature of this system, physical therapy management of persons with vestibular dysfunction requires additional education and training beyond what is offered in a typical entry-level physical therapy program curriculum.

The purpose of this course is to educate the practicing physical therapist on the management of patients with peripheral vestibular disorders in order to expand their current practice skill set into the subspecialty of vestibular rehabilitation. This will be accomplished through knowledge of functional anatomy of the vestibular system and current methods of evidence-based examination and the process of differential assessment to determine effective treatment of common peripheral vestibular disorders, or when referral is appropriate.

This intermediate level course is targeted at practicing physical therapists who have experience managing patients with balance dysfunction and basic knowledge of standardized gait and balance measures.

High-Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorders: Diagnosis, Strengths, Challenges, and Physical Therapy Interventions

Price: $29.95 
Item # Q3488  

Expiration Date: July 30, 2019

In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released data indicating that 1 out of every 68 children is diagnosed with a disorder on the autism spectrum. These numbers indicate a continuing increase in the number of children being identified with this condition. Along with these numbers, physical and occupational therapists and other healthcare providers have seen a parallel rise in referrals for assessment and intervention services.  While physical therapists have not always been included as part of the healthcare team working with individuals with autism spectrum disorders, it is imperative that physical therapy practitioners remain up to date and well-informed regarding evidence-based practice for this population.  Individuals with autism spectrum disorders frequently present with motor impairments and limitations; some researchers even suggest that motor impairment is a core characteristic of autism spectrum disorder. Individuals with autism spectrum disorders may benefit from intervention by physical therapists who are educated about this diagnosis.

This intermediate level course will provide physical therapists and physical therapy assistants with information on the criteria and classification system for autism spectrum disorders based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, 5th edition, along with information about how physical therapists can contribute to the clinical decisions and care provided to these individuals. Appropriate assessments and treatment strategies will be described that are intended to meet the needs of individuals with an autism spectrum disorder, their families, and others who work and interact with them. This course will also address suggested methods of communication with and engagement of these individuals in the context of physical therapy management.  Although this course is specifically designed to examine the unique and heterogeneous needs of people with high-functioning autism spectrum disorders, much of the information can also be applied to individuals diagnosed on the autism spectrum with any degree of impairment.

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.
