Acute Care Back to the Basics: Burn Care
Presented by Julia Smith, MS, OTR/L
Video
Course: #4567Level: Introductory1 Hour
Occupational therapists play a vital role in the management of upper extremity burn injuries for patients during their acute care stay. This course will focus on basic anatomy, burn classification, and appropriate evaluation and interventions during the early phases of wound healing for maximum functional recovery.

Elbow Stiffness: Therapeutic Management
Presented by Paul Bonzani, MHS, OTR/L, CHT
Video
Course: #4579Level: Advanced1 Hour
Therapeutic intervention for the resolution of elbow stiffness. Joint and soft tissue mobilization, therapeutic exercise and occupation-based interventions to prevent and resolve elbow stiffness are presented. Orthotic principles for prevention and resolution of elbow stiffness are reviewed.

Upper Extremity Rehabilitation for Traumatic Brachial Plexus Injuries
Presented by Anna VanVoorhis Miller, MS, OTR/L, CHT
Video
Course: #4545Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course begins with an in-depth overview of the anatomy and mechanics of traumatic brachial plexus injury, possible nerve transfers, and delves into the role of OT in evaluating and monitoring the progress of recovery. Additionally, it highlights treatment priorities and techniques that may be helpful in the rehabilitation of this patient population.

Elbow Stiffness: Biological and Neurological Considerations
Presented by Paul Bonzani, MHS, OTR/L, CHT
Video
Course: #4578Level: Advanced1 Hour
The unique anatomy and physiology of the elbow joint are explored in the context of contracture development. Contributions of neurological mechanisms of bicipital co-contraction and shoulder girdle substitution to elbow stiffness are elucidate as are implications for therapy management.

Progressive Topics of Torticollis for the Occupational Therapist
Presented by Lisa Roehl, PT, DPT, Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Pediatric Physical Therapy
Video
Course: #4497Level: Advanced1 Hour
Torticollis is identified by posture of the head and neck from unilateral shortening of the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) causing the head to tilt in one direction and rotate in the opposing direction. This asymmetrical positioning can directly affect the child’s early motor development, specifically vision and early hand control. This course aims to progress the participant’s knowledge of torticollis’ impact on a child’s early fine motor development.

Introduction to Torticollis and Plagiocephaly
Presented by Lisa Roehl, PT, DPT, Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Pediatric Physical Therapy
Video
Course: #4472Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course focuses on identifying and understanding the muscle imbalances of torticollis and related aspects of cranial asymmetries of plagiocephaly. Torticollis is identified by the posture of the head and neck from a unilateral shortening of the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) causing the head to tilt in one direction and rotate in the opposing direction. This asymmetry positioning can cause increased dependence and pressure on the growing skull and cause flattening. This course aims to establish baseline knowledge for identifying torticollis and plagiocephaly and provide early treatment ideas for the therapist and family.

Current Topics in Upper Limb Loss and Difference: Electronic Multi-Articulating Hands and Digits, Toe-to-Hand Transfers, and Hand Transplantations
Presented by Diane J. Atkins, OTR/L, FISPO
Video
Course: #4444Level: Advanced1 Hour
This presentation is designed to capture the current advances in electric multi-articulating hands, hand transplantation, and toe-to-hand transfers. Functional and quality of life outcomes will be shared as well as several videos that will demonstrate the functional abilities of individuals who have been recipients of these advanced procedures.

Current Topics in Upper Limb Loss and Difference: Bilateral Upper Limb Loss
Presented by Shawn Swanson Johnson, OTR/L
Video
Course: #4443Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course will focus on bilateral upper extremity limb loss, pre-prosthetic and post prosthetic therapy needs, and ideas and resources for the bilateral upper limb loss/absence individual. It will also provide information on adaptive equipment for ADL’s.

Current Topics in Upper Limb Loss and Difference: OT for Targeted Muscle Reinnervation and Pattern Recognition Control
Presented by Kristi Turner, DHSc, OTR/L
Video
Course: #4471Level: Advanced1 Hour
Targeted Muscle Reinnervation is a surgical procedure that moves the remaining residual limb nerves into musculature in the residual limb. The basic concepts and therapy of Targeted Muscle Reinnervation, as well as pattern recognition control, will be described.

Current Topics in Upper Limb Loss and Difference: Problem Solving Complex Issues with Pediatric Upper Limb Loss Difference
Presented by Vivian Yip, OTD, MA, OTR/L
Video
Course: #4453Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course will provide clinicians strategies and tools to guide care for unique children with various involvement of limb differences and their families to participate in everyday activities and daily living skills.
