MT-O: Evidence-Based Orthopedic Diagnostic Evaluation (20.7 Direct Contact Hours/2.6 CEUs)
This course incorporates effective orthopedic assessment, with accurate Evidence-Based Medicine, differential diagnosis, screening and special tests by region and diagnosis. Hands-on laboratory focuses on effective orthopedic assessment. Differential diagnosis is approached for both regional and tissue specific screening. Screening covers making a “spot” diagnosis as necessary, and performing effective and comprehensive Upper and Lower Quarter screening as well as for Neurological, Myelopathic, and Visceral pathologies. Principles of assessment are stressed and practiced with direct supervised instructor feedback. Course material is based upon peer-reviewed published evidence, supported by appropriate statistical relevance. Special tests of high diagnostic accuracy are discussed and practiced for each region of the body and for specific diagnoses. Extensive discussion of case studies support the information presented. May be taken at any time as a stand-alone course.
Includes required Home Study course component of approximately 5.5 hours.
