Description:

This comprehensive excellent 20 contact (20 NBCOT PDU; 2.0 AOTA APP CEU) approved course provides you with the clinical knowledge to safely administer thermal modalities in a functional occupationally based approach. We will review current occupational therapy terminology and philosophy to establish the theoretical basis for the use of thermal agent modalities into occupational therapy practice. Evidence identifying effectiveness of each thermal modality intervention is presented as well as the step by step practical application of each device. We assist you in obtaining the training and continuing education you may need to comply with state requirements. Please check with your state licensing and regulatory board to determine what your specific state requirements may be. This course was developed to educate practitioners in the proper, safe and judicious use of physical agent modalities while treating their clients. The format includes lecture, demonstration and practicum, case study presentation with emphasis on treatment planning and assessing effectiveness. A post test format is employed to demonstrate mastery of the material presented and a certificate will be emailed immediately upon (80%) successful completion. Mandatory reading in the 140 page manual and includes required reading to enhance your learning experience. This course can be purchased independently (20 contact hours)or as part of our comprehensive 45 Occupation Based PAMS series consisting of Thermal and Electrical modalities. Must have course.

Participant will:

  • Differentiate physical impairments from deficits in occupational performance
  • Delineate the biological, psychosocial, and contextual issues resulting in impairment of occupation engagement
  • Identify the biological, psychosocial and contextual problems that could be enhanced through the use of physical agent modalities
  • Determine the appropriate intervention following carful assessment of the underlying biological, psychosocial and contextual pathology
  • Distinguish which underlying biological process is enhanced through the use of an appropriate physical agent modality

    Paul is obviously a very intelligent and well-respected clinician. He does a wonderful job making sure difficult points are understood. However, he's a bit monotone and difficult to follow sometimes.
     
       
    Mrs. Falkenstein: Thanks so very much for all your help!! Not only is your product excellent but your customer service is outstanding as well! I've recommended you to many of my fellow practitioners!! Donna R. COTA/L
     
       
    I have not yet taken the exam but I found the course to be very comprehensive and enjoyable. I love being able to watch/listen twice to areas I need to review again. The instructor is very knowledgeable and knows how to teach to OTs!
