Target Audience

CMS and insurance providers are demanding greater and greater accountability from rehabilitation therapists. Functional assessment, a core skill for occupational and physical therapists, is the key to addressing this call for justification of care. Physical and occupational therapists are being asked to clearly demonstrate and document our ability to improve outcomes and decrease health care costs. This one-hour course addresses 3 real life patient scenarios (high functioning, average functioning, and low functioning). Functional assessment options for specific patient conditions are discussed and therapists are introduced to a variety of functional tools. Correct application of these tools is stressed throughout the course. The course provides an assessment of a variety of functional tools that can be used with older patients. We want to encourage therapists to apply appropriate functional tools to patient care in the most effective way possible and to be able to use the results in their documentation system.
