3 Accredited Courses for Texans with More to Come.

With three courses accredited in the state of Texas, and with a 20%, there has never been more of a reason to become a PP+ member

Great news if you are from Texas as Physiopedia is actively working with the Texas Physical Therapy Association to get  as many of our courses externally validated and accredited.

Currently the Stroke course has been approved by the Texas Board of Physical Therapy Examiners for 18.56 CCU’s. This is one of our most popular courses and was recently updated to include the latest and best Physiopedia Plus can offer.

The course aims to provide an overview of stroke practice allowing you to develop a foundation of knowledge enabling you to become the best clinician possible. You will obtain a deeper understanding of anatomy and physiology, clinical presentation, assessment and treatment of stroke according to the latest evidence. The outline includes:

  1. Epidemiology, Risk Factors, Anatomy, and Clinical Presentations
  2. Assessment of Stroke including Outcome Measures
  3. Management of Stroke including Clinical Guidelines
  4. Specific Therapeutic Interventions including Gait, Upper Limb

For a taste of what to look forward to, watch this interview with Dr Coralie English. This course really will transform your practice.

The Foot & Ankle course has been approved by the Texas Board of Physical Therapy Examiners for 16 CCU’s. The foot and ankle is a complex structure and a good understanding is essential no matter which specialty you work in. Best practice requires skills in assessment, treatment and rehabilitation across acute and chronic conditions. Due to the complexity and diversity of the topic, this course gives you an introduction to assessment and treatment techniques, and gives you a foundation of understanding to build upon.

The outline includes:

  1. Structure and function of the foot and ankle
  2. Medial and lateral aspects of the ankle
  3. Conditions of the anterior, posterior and plantar aspects
  4. Other common conditions and orthotics

 

The Managing Children with Cerebral Palsy MOOC (MCCP) has been approved by the Texas Board of Physical Therapy Examiners for a massive 24 CCU’s. The course was a great success when it was released a year ago and it still is. The course outcomes were overwhelmingly positive and the post-course evaluation says it all…

This course changed the entire approach towards CP, not only for me but with the application in clinical setting, also for my colleagues. I got to learn not about the treatment through material but with videos and practical approaches in different countries. Especially the discussion forum really helped where different physiotherapists from all  around the world shared their experiences.

Expect to cover the following topics during the course:

  • Understanding Cerebral Palsy
  • Child development and evaluation
  • Positioning and handling
  • Communication, feeding and into adulthood
  • Everyday activities and vocational training
  • Specific therapeutic interventions

This is only the beginning, with more Texans taking part in the courses it means we can continue to accredit the rest of our extensive and comprehensive course catalog.

My interest in health and fitness started at a young age. Even though I had been educated and trained as an engineer in Europe I always want to follow my passion. I have made some guest appearances on a health educational program TV in Europe and, this experience, has made me follow my passion of sharing wellness information with others.
