Putting the 'FUN' in Functional!

Demonstrations of Evidence Based Therapy

Contact Hours: 5

Seminar Description:

Putting the Fun in Functional demonstrates creative, current and effective clinical practice. Evidence based practice, utilizing standardized tests, clinical reasoning, goal setting and appropriate documentation maximize reimbursement and are all necessary components of an effective treatment program. They are all addressed in this 5-hour video course.

We begin with a review of some of the most important publications regarding function and older persons. Then we follow Danielle Keyser as she evaluates and treats 3 patients (4 if you watch the bonus section) with a variety of diagnoses from deconditioning to vestibular deficits. Danielle Keyser and Dr. Carole Lewis explore the key lessons demonstrated in the cases and also discuss the different roles OT and PT play in patient rehabilitation. The final session on rehab equipment is not to be missed. The suggestions for inexpensive and incredibly useful tools for adapting function are ingenious!

Occupational and Physical Therapists share in the most intimate details of a patient’s life. We have to be kind yet clinically focused, genuine and vulnerable ourselves, in order to maximize our effectiveness in addressing deficits that stand in the way of our patients’ function and quality of life.

Danielle Keyser’s electric personality and deep passion rivet the participant to the screen. She brings rehabilitation therapy to its much-deserved level of competence.
