Comprehensive Physical Therapy Concussion Management April 13

A physical therapist, as a member of a multidisciplinary team, is a significant contributor to the management of patients that have lasting symptoms and complications from sustaining a concussion. This course will explore the complex nature of concussions and help clinicians better understand how to manage patients with the multiple symptoms and impairments with which a patient recovering from a concussion can present with.

This hands-on lab-based course will cover the multifaceted evaluation and interventions that can benefit patients with a concussion: including comprehensive management of the musculoskeletal, vestibular, and visual systems. In addition to the clinical management of concussion, participants in this course will learn their role in concussion management outside of the clinic including returning our patients to sport/work as well as how to help students return to the classroom following a concussion.

Successful course participants will return to their clinic with a greater understanding of:

  • planning and preparing for health care clinical education experiences
  • supportive learning through questioning and effective feedback
  • identifying and implementing performance evaluation metrics
  • managing students with exceptional situations or circumstances
  • exploring legal implications for clinical educators, including issues presented by ADA legislation

This course is intended for health care providers in a clinical setting with more than one year of experience serving as a clinician and who intend to provide clinical education in a supervisory role to students, including physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and health care providers from other professions. Both new and experienced physical therapist and physical therapist assistant educators will benefit from participating in the course. Classroom interaction is emphasized as a means to highlight and discuss different ideas and create a shared learning environment in which each student brings a unique and valuable perspective to the conversation. Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who successfully complete this course will receive a credential which verifies their status as an APTA-Credentialed Clinical Instructor (CI), as well as 1.6 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) which may be used to satisfy licensure renewal requirements.
