Differential Diagnosis in PT-- Part 10 Screening for Systemic Disease - The Shoulder-
#2060_002 Differential Diagnosis in PT-- Part 10 Screening for Systemic Disease - The Shoulder

DESCRIPTION

4 Contact Hours

Screening problems in the shoulder for systemic disease is the focus of this course, which is the final segment (Part 10) of the series: Differential Diagnosis in Physical Therapy.

The overall course series will introduce students and clinicians to the role that health screenings and review of systems (ROS ~ see Part 5 for detailed explanation of ROS in the screening process) play in the clinical decision making that leads to a physical therapy diagnosis.

Physical therapists must be able to identify signs and symptoms of systemic disease that can mimic neuromuscular or musculoskeletal (herein referred to as neuromusculoskeletal or NMS) dysfunction. Peptic ulcers, heart disease, ectopic pregnancy and myocardial ischemia are only a few examples of systemic diseases that can cause shoulder pain and movement dysfunction.

This Intermediate course is designed for physical therapists at all levels from beginner to advanced and working with clients in all settings. This section will review clues suggesting systemic or viscerogenic shoulder pain and take you through each system that can refer pain or symptoms to the shoulder. This will include the GI, pulmonary, renal, gynecologic, and vascular causes of shoulder pain.

A cognitive processing-reasoning orientation will be utilized throughout the course to encourage students to gather and analyze data, pose and solve problems, infer, hypothesize and make clinical judgments as mechanisms for making appropriate differential diagnoses and referrals. Case studies will be used to integrate screening information in determining a physical therapy diagnosis and making decisions regarding intervention versus referral.

Although Screening for Systemic Disease - The Shoulder is written as a stand-alone course, the foundation for physical therapy diagnosis, client history and screening has been laid in Parts 1 and 2 of this 10-part series: Physical Therapy Diagnosis and Screening (Part 1) and Client History and Screening Interview (Part 2).

Availability: 365 days from registration, unless other agreement applies

COURSE GOAL

The instructional focus of this course is on developing advanced clinical reasoning skills related to determining a client’s appropriateness for physical therapy. The course builds on concepts of evidence-based clinical practice as they are used to identify systemic or viscerogenic conditions affecting the shoulder that might mimic neuromuscular or musculoskeletal dysfunction.

OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, the Learner will be able to:

  • Identify 3 possible causes of viscerogenic or systemic-induced shoulder pain and dysfunction
  • Identify the signs and symptoms of systemic origin affecting the shoulder
  • Describe pain patterns referred to the shoulder originating from each visceral organ system, including:
    • Cancer
    • Vascular
    • Pulmonary
    • Gastrointestinal (GI)
    • Renal
    • Gynecologic
  • Recall special questions to ask men and women with significant risk factors, significant past medical history, suspicious clinical presentation and/or associated signs and symptoms that correlate with systemic disease presenting as shoulder pain or dysfunction.
  • Describe which shoulder conditions require medical referral.

Intervention Strategies for Reducing Medical Errors-
#2070_001 Intervention Strategies for Reducing Medical Errors

DESCRIPTION

2 Contact Hour Course

Patients enter healthcare systems with an expectation of receiving care that will help and not harm them. Yet, present studies show evidence of large numbers of patients receiving injury, often unintentional but preventable, during the administration of healthcare. Many of these deaths were from errors that could have been prevented.

Previous correctional emphasis has been on placing blame on the person who committed the error, with the intention that the person could learn from his/her mistake. Current correctional emphasis is on establishing the root cause of the error and correcting system failures to avoid future occurrences.

Ongoing monitoring of corrective measures must be established. All levels of national healthcare, both inpatient and ambulatory, are committed to decreasing medical errors while restoring the public’s confidence in the healthcare industry. To achieve this goal, facilities must change from a focus on fault-finding to one of system correction within a non-punitive atmosphere. Emphasis must be on improving and implementing processes within systems to prevent and reduce future medical errors.

Completion of this Introductory medical errors reduction course (mandated by Florida Statute 456.013) provides the student with the ability to implement root cause analysis for problem solving to determine effective prevention strategies for decreasing medical errors and increasing patient safety in the healthcare system.

Availability: 365 days from registration, unless other agreement applies

COURSE GOAL

To direct healthcare professionals to concentrate more accurately on preventing medical errors by addressing system structure during the provision of patient care.

OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, the Learner will be able to:

  • Identify medical system factors impacting patient safety in the delivery of healthcare
  • Perform root cause analysis for problem solving
  • Correlate medical documentation and communication skills for medical error reduction
  • Implement pharmacological protocols to improve patient safety
  • Become cognizant of potential safety concerns with contraindications and indications with and during therapy interventions

Essentials for End-of-Life-Guardianship, Guardians, Occupational Therapy, Mandatory Continuing Education, Certified Activity Professionals
#3016 Essentials for End-of-Life

DESCRIPTION

6 Contact Hours

End-of-Life (EOL) care is an essential arena of competence for all health care providers. As research in this area has grown over the years, professionals such as physicians, nurses, social workers and other allied health care professionals can gain competence and confidence in understanding and managing dying patients and their families. While many professional and research organizations have made significant progress in addressing this problem through the development of standards and principles of practice, including EOL educational content and curricula in licensing requirements, educational curricula and on-the-job training, there is still much you must do to stay current in EOL care.

In order to maintain and improve your competence and ability to provide quality of care, it is essential to stay up-to-date in this rapidly changing field. Today, we are faced with such EOL ethical decisions as advanced directives, living wills, do not resuscitate orders, medical powers of attorney, voluntary euthanasia—and all of these potential ethical decisions vary from state to state and culture to culture. Because of their sheer numbers, aging baby boomers already started to change EOL care, first for their parents and now starting for themselves.

Not only will this course introduce you to the Core Principles of End-of-Life Care, which have been endorsed by a substantial group of medical and professional organizations throughout the past two decades, but these principles also have relevance to all allied health providers. You will be provided with pertinent information and self-development exercises to better prepare you to practice according to these established principles but also to the latest research and knowledge about EOL care.

Availability: 365 days from registration, unless other agreement applies

COURSE GOAL

Learners will gain awareness, confidence and skill in coping with End-of-Life (EOL) issues that will serve them as they provide daily care for patients.

OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, the Learner will be able to:

  • Define three basic communication skills that respect the patient’s medical and psychological condition and care in these basic skills.
  • Give four examples of how assessment and treatment goals for EOL care are established by the various professional roles and interdisciplinary team, including the patient and family members.
  • Describe the 5 steps in advance care planning and explain the pros and cons of advanced care directives.
  • Determine four personal strengths and areas for growth in working with a team; apply the basics of self-care and prevention of burn-out.
  • Explain the difference between hospice and palliative care, be able to discuss the difference and demonstrate effective work with the hospice team.'
  • Integrate the influence of one’s own cultural experience and the value of cross-cultural competence in EOL care.
  • Support the value of personal spiritual beliefs and the patient’s right to an independent spiritual exploration.
