This continuing education course is designed to help physical therapists implement evidence and content from Chapter 24-Spinal Cord Injury- into clinical practice. The chapter will be reviewed in detail so that the evidence and content lead to acquisition of new knowledge and clinical practice change. The course is divided into three separate virtual/on-line sessions. The first 2-hour session is asynchronous and focused on general background and foreground information about Pediatric Spinal Cord Injury. All participants are required to complete this session and the knowledge assessment quiz. The two subsequent 1-hour synchronous, online sessions are optional and will focus on case-based discussion regarding tests and measures and intervention for children with this diagnosis. These two sessions will be interactive and include video to emphasize successes and challenges related to knowledge-to-action. The dates and times for the final two sessions will be determined once a cohort of participants (6-10 individuals) has registered for this option.
At the completion of this course participants will be able to:
- Critically review Chapter 24
- Effectively apply the information from Chapter 24 (Spinal Cord Injury) in Campbell’s Physical Therapy For Children, 6th edition:
- Discuss background information related to this diagnosis
- Medical Management including Diagnostic Criteria
- Select and implement tests and measures at the impairment, activity, and participation levels for children with this diagnosis
- Interpret results from the physical therapy examination, including tests/measures, to optimize clinical reasoning and outcomes for children and families
- Select, implement, and evaluate effective interventions for children and families
