More Bang for the Buck: Enhancing Outcomes Through Impairment-Based Treatment

When: Saturday March 5, 2015 8AM – 4PM
Where: Allied Health Building: 100 Penn Street, Baltimore, MD 21201
Instructor: Michelle Green PT, DPT has nearly 20 years of experience in the acute and acute rehabilitation setting working primarily with patients with neurological dysfunction. Her interest in task analysis and application of the ICF Model to assessment and intervention selection guides her coursework development. She has traveled extensively throughout the nation since 2001 presenting courses on stroke rehab, treatment of patients who “push”, senior strength training, functional strength training progression, treatment of the non weightbearing patient and yoga and pilates applications in the rehab setting. Since 1995, Dr. Green has been a group exercise instructor and is trained in mat pilates, yoga and other exercise variations such as TRX. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the DPT at Campbell University in NC and is a graduate of Ithaca College.
Course Description: Impairment-Based Treatment offers rehab professionals a structured framework to produce maximally effective treatment interventions. Rehab professionals are increasingly having to do more within a shorter timeframe. We need to be more effective and precise in our assessment and treatment prescription. The ICF Model will be examined and the participants will learn to tease out impairments which limit function and how to develop treatment interventions to address these impairments. Participants will learn how to hypothesize, test hypothesis and prioritize impairments to promote more effective treatment interventions. Selection of appropriate tests and measures is reviewed. Extensive afternoon lab section designed to introduce use of common household and clinic items in their ex design to add fun and interest to their ex programs. This is not specifically ortho or neuro focused, but instead uses a wide variety of case examples to highlight the problem solving process for any diagnosis with examples tailored to the needs of the facility.
