Specific focus is on Safe patient handling involved in SPHM programs will find this course particularly beneficial.
Proficiency Standard for CEU
Attendance for the entire course will meet requirement for CEU. No post-test. Evaluation is required.
Get your patients doing more – Early mobility, fall prevention, neuroplasticity, bariatrics, appropriate dosing of therapeutic interventions and more! This one-day course will allow you to explore how equipment can be utilized to truly apply high repetitions, salient activities, engagement, aerobic exercise, error-allowance during rehabilitation activities, all without the fear of patient or therapist injury. Through a mix of didactic presentation, facilitated group discussion, and hands-on learning opportunities, participants will identify safe patient handling solutions to challenging cases using a spectrum of equipment and devices across the continuum of care. Additional content will explore the process of obtaining equipment in your facility, and the therapist’s role in safe patient handling programs.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Appraise current therapy practice related to current evidence for repetition, intensity, saliency and task-specific, goal-oriented interventions
- Correctly Identify at least 2 limitations of manual handling techniques for therapeutic interventions that would be overcome with safe patient mobility equipment
- Integrate SPHM equipment into 3 treatment interventions in a simulated patient case
