Event Details

Clinical education plays a significant role in the entry-level professional DPT curriculum. The traditional model is a 1:1 student to clinical instructor ratio during all clinical rotations. Due to several challenges placed on clinical education, such as an increase in the number of entry level DPT educational programs, the need for diversity of experiences, as well as third party restrictions on student services, it is time to consider innovative changes. The new collaborative model for clinical education introduces a 2:1 or 3:1 model and has been well utilized by clinical settings like the Mayo clinic’s PT and OT departments. This course will highlight the need for innovative collaboration between students and clinical instructors, weekly focus points to progress students through their clinicals, and how current clinical instructors have utilized this model effectively.
3 CEU's will be issued upon completion of the course.

Event Details

New patient-reported outcome measures empower clinicians to efficiently capture biomedical, psychological, and social variables of health during routine care.  These new measures are person-centered and population-based, enhancing the focus on the individual and community.  This course reviews interpretation and application of the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) to routine clinical care.  Specific measures that span a biopsychosocial model of care include Physical Function, Fatigue, Self-efficacy of Symptom Management, and Satisfaction with Social Roles and Activities.  We will cover basic clinical interpretation of each measure, available data from physical therapy clinics, case studies, and interviews with providers and patients where these scales were used to augment care.  Participants can expect to be exposed to concrete ways of using PROMIS measures to target treatments for specific patients, document patient care, and identify new psychosocial areas of practice that may enhance patient outcomes.

  • This course will be hands-on using iPad PROMIS, videos, case vignettes, and live case study.
  • We will demonstrate the power of PROMIS to enhance your clinical decision making.
  • Lunchtime Idea Session with Dan & Ryan - LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED!
  • Online modules will also be made available to you to enhance your learning after the course.
  • 8 CE contact hours will be issued upon completion of the course.

Objectives:

  1. Interpret and apply the Patient-Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Measures to assess and track health for patients attending physical therapy.
  2. Understand and apply strategies to improve patient self-efficacy in physical therapy care and to encourage increased physical activity.
  3. Understand and apply strategies to assess and treat high fatigue symptoms that occur in patients attending physical therapy.
  4. Understand and apply strategies to identify social participation goals and use these goals to enhance commitment to rehabilitation programs and satisfaction social roles and life activities.
