Contact Hours:   5
Registration Fee:   $150


Objectives
Upon completion, participants will be able to:
1. Compare valid tools for assessments of impairments, functional limitations, & disability for a patient with complex medical problems.
2. Perform a focused evaluation and set therapeutic goals based on patient’s personal goals using valid objective measures and tools (e.g., Barthel Index, Allen’s Cognitive Level) to justify occupational therapy intervention.
3. Demonstrate & explain evidence-based treatment tools & concepts for functional activities.
4. Implement new treatment ideas for training functional impairments.
5. Confidently set goals for progression in treatment of functional deficits for a patient with multiple medical problems.


Agenda
Part 1 Evaluation (1 hour 15 min)
A Master Clinician performs an initial evaluation on a patient he has never treated before. Subjective intake questions have been modified for a patient with aphasia. Objective tests and measures for upper extremity, trunk, and lower extremity impairments in a patient with hemiparesis hip fracture and multiple medical problems are demonstrated.
Part II Treatment (1 hour 15 min) Creative evidence based functional tasks are demonstrated. Progression ideas and monitoring are demonstrated and discussed.
Part III: (1 hour 15 min) Review the patient interaction video while listening to commentary by Keith Screen, master clinician, with comments and questions from Dr. Carole Lewis and Rebecca Fielding. Learn what valid tools can be used to objectively measure your patient’s impairments and set measureable goals.
Part IV: (1 hour 15 min) Keith reveals his clinical decision making process as he moves through the treatment segment, all the while focusing on his patient’s impairments and the patient’s personal goals. Explore what and why specific treatments are chosen and progressed.
Learn how to think about evidence-based practice and how to incorporate it into you daily clinical practice even when time is limited.

Description
Geriatric Occupational Therapy is often complex and challenging, especially when your patient can’t provide all the details. Watch as Keith Screen, MS, OTR, CLT evaluates and treats a medically complex geriatric patient he has never met before. He uses client-focused, occupation-based assessments to help his patient establish her personal plan of care. Keith demonstrates objective tests and measures for upper extremity, trunk, and lower extremity impairments in a patient with hemiparesis hip fracture and multiple medical problems. You will also see the evidence based tools used to assess functional deficits. This will be followed by patient education regarding her impairments, how they relate to her functional goals, and the process of goal setting based on the patient’s needs, roles and desires. Following the initial evaluation, Keith demonstrates creative, evidence based, functional interventions. Progression and monitoring are demonstrated. Keith then deconstructs his sessions with Dr. Carole B. Lewis, PT, DPT, GCS, GTC, CCOEE, MPA, MSG, PhD, FAPTA and Rebecca Fielding, OTR. Explore why specific treatments are chosen and progressed. Learn how to think about evidencebased practice and how to incorporate it into you daily clinical practice even when time is limited.
