About this event

CHANGES TO ALL REQUIRED COURSE MATERIALS: please note that all pre and post-course materials will now need to be searched for in PTSU and will no longer be assigned to you. It is your responsibility as a clinician to search for all course materials listed below.

Pre and post-course materials are to be completed 100% to obtain credit for this course.

INSTRUCTIONS TO FIND REQUIRED COURSE MATERIALS:

In PTSU, you can find the required pre and post-course materials for the live course by searching: "PTSU - Hand, Wrist, Elbow: Evaluation & Rehabilitation Course Materials 2022"

PLEASE NOTE: The Certificate will be automatically posted to your PTSU account under "completed training" upon 100% course completion. If your pre and post-course materials are not completed, you are not eligible for your CEU certificates.

Course Description: This one-day, interactive course will focus on the evaluation and treatment of impairments of the hand, wrist, and elbow in the physical therapy and occupational therapy setting. The purpose of this course will be to advance the understanding of current research in evaluation and treatment of common conditions encountered in the clinic for physical therapy and occupational therapy. The course will focus on the most common causes of hand, wrist, and elbow pain, dysfunction, and impaired functional use including but not limited to: carpal tunnel, osteoarthritis, trigger finger, duputryen’s, Dequervains, fractures, tendon ruptures, medial elbow pain and lateral elbow pain. The class will also connect cervical pathology and a source of distal hand and wrist pain. A combination of interactive lecture, small group case study, and lab skills will ultimately lead to well informed care and enhanced clinical patient outcomes. Lectures will include review of relevant anatomy, physiology, differential diagnosis, clinical practice patterns, discussion of clinical decision making, and real-world case examples. Lab will center around small group case study with demonstration of appropriate clinical exams, screening techniques, treatment techniques, exercise progression, hands-on cuing and motor learning techniques, and patient education strategies as substantiated in current literature with instructor feedback.

IMPORTANT CEU INFORMATION:

PT/PTA- Approved for 10 CEUs total in the following states:

(AL, CA, CO, FL, GA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MI, MO, MS, NC, NJ, OK, OR, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, WA)

OT/COTA - Pending Approval for states that require approval. Please check your state guidlines on CE requirements for OT/COTA.

METHODS OF INSTRUCTION: 10 hours in total - 3 hours allocated to pre-reading from journals of education and learning and 7 hours in total allocated to didactic, lab and manual techniques. Manual techniques and assessments will be performed under supervision, medical difficulties should be relayed to the instructor prior to course. Method of instruction 70% lecture and participation in clinical concepts, work in group for logical progression and problem solving. 30% Lab including: testing and assessment, written documentation, hands on treatment, with peer supervision and feedback. Exercise prescription and creation of progressions for vestibular specific activities. A post-test will be given upon completion of the course with a minimum score of 80% required to pass and receive credit for participation. One re-take will be allowed.

INTENDED PARTICIPANTS: PT Solutions clinical employees to include Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, and Certified Occupational Therapist Assistants. The Physical Therapist Assistant and Certified Occupational Therapist Assistants will not be expected to deliver or administer advanced manual skills and must understand that these skills should not be delivered without supervision of the Physical Therapist or Occupational Therapist.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Physical Therapists: By completion of the course, Occupational Therapists will be able to discuss and interpret current evidence related to assessment, examination, clinical decision making and treatment of the physiologic components related to the wrist and hand. 

  1. Design an evidence-based plan of care including functional goals based on a systematic interview and examination of patient, prognosis, deficits in function and length of care given a case scenario of a patient with a common wrist/hand injury discussed. 
  2. Describe appropriate interventions to address ROM and/or strength given a case scenario.   
  3. Identify 3 red flags necessitating referral to another healthcare provider given a case scenario.   
  4. Verbalize the relationship between cervical spine to wrist/hand musculature and nerve pathways during assessment as they relate to upper extremity activities of daily living and hand function. 
  5. Utilize examination findings in assessment of wrist/hand to identify 3 appropriate treatment interventions for a specific case diagnosis.   
  6. Describe the anatomic and physiologic changes associated with common wrist/hand injuries including post-surgical intervention and how it relates to injury risk, red-flags, comorbidities/ disease risk in relation to OT evaluation and intervention
