Description

We have rescheduled!!

Our new date will be Saturday, April 13 at Marist College. Hope you will join us!

Prosthetic Orthotic Associates will sponsor a First Things FirstTraining and Clinic hosted by Marist College on Saturday, April 13, 2019.

Therapists will receive 6.6 credits in continuing education. Instructors will be Chris Doerger PT, CP and Francine Sage-King PT, DPT. Lunch will be provided

This program is designed for physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and other allied health practitioners. Falls have become an epidemic in the United States with an aging population and are even more common in individuals with limb loss. This course will review epidemiology related to falls, evidence-based intervention programs related to fall prevention, and practical techniques to teach individuals how to fall and recover from a fall. All lecture topics are applied with a hands-on lab that includes local community members as course participants. Rehabilitation professionals will leave with the ability to immediately apply this information to their daily practice.

Afternoon clinic attendees-lower limb amputees, will join us at 1 pm for a two hour clinic in falls and recovery. Wear comfortable clothes as you will be moving about!

You only need to register ONCE, as it is assumed that if you join us for the morning session that you will be with us all day.
