Virtual Therapy Conference
Times and dates to be determined. This program (and pricing) is designed to be used for a hospital or system who would like their whole therapy team to become more familiar with how to use SPHM technology to promote early and continuous mobility.
Target audience are physical therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapy assistants and certified occupational therapy assistants.
This innovative virtual experience applies evidence-based learning theory to help translate knowledge of how to use Safe Patient Handling Technologies to promote safe patient mobility, into practice.
By the end of this conference, attendees will be able to:
- Describe 3 uses of safe patient handling technologies to promote patient mobility
- Critically appraise the role of SPHM technology in achieving therapeutic goals
- Demonstrate the use of SPHM during a clinical case scenario to implement recovery principles
- Reflect on at least 2 barriers and solutions for using SPHM in routine therapy practice
The ticket includes access to all three parts of this conference:
Part 1: 4-hour live interactive teaching on therapeutic uses of safe patient handling devices to promote mobility.
Hour 1: Current evidence review: Neuroplasticity, ICU rehab, Recovery principles and best practice
Hour 2-3.5: Live demonstration with interactive discussion during case-based scenarios.
Hour 3.5-4: Q&A and Instructions about assignments for completion prior to part 2
You will be guided through exercises to put what you have seen into action with a co-worker in your own facility. Rubric will be provided with expectation of completion and return of completed rubric before part 2.
Part 2: This 2- hour session (1-2 weeks after part 1) brings participants back together to review assignments after part 1, with live discussion and Q&A about challenges, barriers and facilitating factors. Live demonstration of requested techniques that participants want to see again or are not sure of having practiced the techniques themselves.
1.75 Hours: Reflection and reviewing activities and exercise after part 1.
0.25 hours: Instructions for assignments to complete prior to part 3.
You will be guided through the last part of the exercise where full translation of knowledge to practice is achieved. HIPPA-compliant rubric and tracking forms will be provided to track uses of newly acquired knowledge and skill in real time during routine patient care. Copies of these will be turned in prior to part 3.
Part 3: This 2-hour final session will take place 4 weeks after part 2, and will bring participants back together one final time to review and discuss assignments, and any questions remaining from parts 1 (Observation and knowledge to be gained), part 2 (consolidating knowledge and skills through hands-on practice of observed techniques) and part 3 (Translation of knowledge and skills into practice).
1.75 hours: Reflection and review of activities, barriers, facilitators and repeat demonstrations of techniques as requested
0.25 hours: Course Evaluation and wrap up.
