Information is strategically valuable to all organizations. It is used by administrators and staff members to make decisions that will influence organizational success. Organizations use several formal, informal, and one-on-one communication channels to ensure staff members and administrators have access to the information they need when they need it. This course discusses the communication process, the strategic importance of communication management, how information is distributed and protected, and the impact HIPAA has on facility communications.

Osteoarthritis affects up to 40% of all adults, with knee and hip Osteoarthritis among the most common causes of pain and disability in the older adult population. Osteoarthritis-related disability is a major health problem. There is no cure for Osteoarthritis, but many have tried to further understand common pathologies and the etiology of Osteoarthritis to better decrease the effects Osteoarthritis has on one’s functional abilities. Osteoarthritis can be treated with conservative and non-conservative measures, including surgery. Weight plays a role in the diagnosis of Osteoarthritis, so weight management is an important factor when considering treatment options for this condition. This course discusses how Physical and Occupational Therapy professionals can help patients and clients decrease their Osteoarthritis-related symptoms, while improving their functional ability, using both conservative management techniques and post-operative rehabilitation.

Diabetes Mellitus is a very common health problem, with about 190 million sufferers worldwide. Genetic factors and environmental influences are responsible for the development of this condition, with obesity and inactivity being a primary cause of diabetes in the developed world. While Physical and Occupational Therapy professionals may not treat diabetes itself, they routinely encounter patients and clients who have diabetes-related complications and comorbidities that require their professional expertise. Because diabetes is linked to inactivity, these professionals are in a unique position to help diabetes patients overcome inactivity to improve their health. This course discusses the types of diabetes, how it impacts patients and clients, and how Physical and Occupational Therapy professionals can help people cope with the disease.

Rotator cuff pathology is a very common cause of shoulder pain, weakness, and limitations of daily activities, resulting in lost time at work and play. Many people can recover after physical therapy alone, depending on the size and type of rotator cuff tear. Others do not respond to more conservative management approaches, requiring surgery to repair a rotator cuff injury. There are many common rotator cuff pathologies that lead to rotator cuff dysfunction. Rotator cuff tears can be treated conservatively, without surgery, or through one of several surgical approaches. It is important to understand the proper rehabilitation protocol following surgery for the patient to reach the best outcome. This course will discuss the anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder, leading to a better understanding the impact of a rotator cuff injury. We will also discuss the proper rehabilitation protocol following rotator cuff surgery, along with other non-conservative approaches to the management of rotator cuff tears.

For most people, eating is both a necessary and enjoyable activity. There is a very wide range of food types, ways to prepare the same types of foods, and places to purchase raw ingredients and ready-to-eat meals. Eating is more than a basic human need; it’s a social activity where people take a break from the daily grind to catch up with family and friends on the day’s events or have a few minutes to relax. For some people, though, the joy of eating is diminished due to illnesses and digestive disorders. These people don’t get to eat food like they did when they were younger or healthier. Many of them live in care facilities or resident homes where they have little control over their own diet, or they are home-bound and depend on others to do their shopping. Physical therapists may not be directly responsible for the diet needs of their patients, but they should consider these needs as they plan treatment and collaborate with the other members of the patient’s care team. This course discusses digestion, nutrition, and how a good diet helps patients become and stay healthy.

Some people receive physical therapy while being cared for in an inpatient, assisted living, residential, or another healthcare facility. In these situations, each individual has a care plan and is assigned a care team of medical professionals who execute this plan; physical therapists are sometimes part of this team. The care team relies on each caregiver to be an attentive observer of each individual in their care, acting as a vital communication link that ensures each person receives the care they need and deserve. This course discusses how members of the care team, including physical therapists, should observe, report, and document concerns for those in their care.

Drug therapy is necessary for the treatment of many forms of mental illness and chronic pain. However, some medications can create serious health and social issues when they are overprescribed. Overprescribing or mis-prescribing medications is a particular concern in vulnerable populations such as older Americans and those with current or previous substance related disorders. This course will discuss the current overprescribing crisis in healthcare and potential solutions. Specifically, this course will provide an overview of overprescribing in eldercare and mental health settings will discuss how taking unnecessary medication harms patients and increases the risk of addiction. It will also discuss how to minimize the risks of overprescribing in treatment.

Many patients are accustomed to an active lifestyle, so they become frustrated when they cannot move around or engage in activities as they did before an illness or injury, or like they did when they were younger. Physical therapists understand this frustration, so they help patients, caregivers, and family members understand and apply safe ambulation techniques. This course discusses how physical therapy workers can better understand these concerns, so they can, in turn, educate patients and caregivers on ambulation and mobility.

Many patients are accustomed to an active lifestyle, so they become frustrated when they cannot move around or engage in occupations in ways they did before an illness or injury, or like they did when they were younger. Physical therapists understand this frustration, so they help patients, caregivers, and family members understand and apply safe transfer techniques. Some patients require help with their basic needs because they don’t have the ability to take care of it themselves; helping them safely transfer from one place to another is important. This course discusses how physical therapy workers can better understand these concerns, so they can, in turn, assist patients with transfers.

Many patients have difficulty getting out of bed, walking around, bathing, or using a wheelchair. These difficulties can lead to injuries when a patient falls or attempts to do something beyond their physical capabilities. The Physical Therapist can prevent these incidents by learning how to best position patients and how to help them move around. Patients are kept safe when caregivers know how to prevent falls, when to use physical restraints, and how to watch for other ways someone may become injured. Understanding body mechanics helps therapists determine how they can best help patients without causing injury to themselves or others. This course discusses the signs that a patient might have difficulties moving or staying in a safe position on their own, and what techniques caregivers can use to help their patients move, sit, and lie in a safe manner.
