Confirmation Notes


Watch 5 hours of live video demonstrating cutting edge practice. Spend 2.5 hours with an experienced clinician in a skilled nursing facility as she meets for the first time and then treats an86-year old woman over a 2-day period. Carolyn Padalino takes a patient, who has multiple diagnoses, including hip fracture, through initial evaluation and two treatment sessions. Watch closely as she works with a real patient to demonstrate patient intake, exercise programming, progression and patient monitoring. In the second half of the course, you will review the evaluation and treatment sessions while Carolyn explains her clinical decision-making and expands on why the research-based interventions she chose were the most appropriate. This commentary is led by Dr. Lewis with input from Keith Screen, MS, OTR. The discussion is packed with evidence based suggestions and support. You will learn numerous treatment strategies and new ideas for care that you can apply in your clinic immediately.
