    About the course:

    Course Description:

    COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course will reveal a novel and intense clinical approach built specifically for persons that are 6 months or more in recovery post cerebrovascular accident (CVA); with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) after brain injury or surgery (from concussion, to TBI, to tumor).This approach includes Interventions that are designed and built directly from evidence and are adapted with consideration for the unique attributes of changes in the body and brain months and years after CVA/brain injury and with disease-onset for years. Additionally, this application will reveal incorporation of recent advances in motivation, motor learning, and practice - displaying all through videotape case study demonstration. Attendees will be engaged in a thought-provoking presentation that challenges previous misconceptions about the timeline of recovery and potential for improvement years after CVA and the potential to recover with MS, PD, concussion in the elderly, etc. This presentation builds on recent evidence of high-intensity interval training, procedural memory training, circuit training, task specific overtraining, motor learning, OPTIMAL, behavioral economics in rehabilitation, forced-use and many more – across mobility, communication, cognition and ADL applications. This course provides the learner from all practice points with tools to rehabilitate clients regardless of equipment and technological availability.


    Course Objectives:

    Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

    1. Identify physiologic changes that occur in many individuals months and years post CVA, brain injury, and with PD.

    2. Apply recent evidence in motor learning and motivation to maximize the recovery for clients in chronic stroke rehabilitation.
    3. Apply recent evidence in practice structure and feedback to maximize the recovery for clients after brain lesion/injury.
    4. Debunk rehabilitation myths about recovery dependence on timing and technology in effective rehabilitative outcomes in those with brain injury, degenerative disease, or stroke.

    Course Description:

    More than 20 years of research, hundreds of papers, and multiple branded risk-reduction training programs have failed to decrease the rate of knee injury risk in women and girls, who are still 3-6 times more likely to experience an ACL injury than their male counterparts. Previous approaches to the problem have been uniformly biological in scope. This talk examines the potential psychosocial and cultural overlays to previous models of injury risk, from presport, training, and competition, to injury and the treatment environment. Discussion will include how these gendered models may apply to athletes in Montana specifically, with highly varied cultural expectations.

    Course Objectives:

    • Understand modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors for knee injury and how they are affected by cultural expectations
    • Identify areas in which culture can affect movement
    • Identify situations in which we as physical therapists in Montana may be inadvertently contributing to the problem, and areas in which we might intervene

    About the Speaker

    Audrey Elias, PT, PhD, OCS

    Dr. Elias's overarching research interest involves determining risk factors for lower extremity (primarily knee) injury and the amelioration thereof, using different model populations. Her PhD work investigated changes in motor patterning following ACL reconstruction to decrease risk of secondary injury, and continues in collaboration within the School and internationally. Her post-doctoral work aimed to determine the effect of fear and pain on mechanical compensation patterns in landing, by utilizing a non-human bipedal population (laying hens) not subject to the same fears and motivations as humans, and continues with collaborations across campus with the Flight Laboratory and the University of Guelph. Dr. Elias's current work builds on both experiences, aiming to elucidate the effects of social structures on movement, investigating the effect of self-objectification on mechanical compensation patterns during landing in young women.

    She also contribute to health care utilization research through her work at the UMPT clinic both on campus and at Partnership Health Center.

    Course Description:

    This course will cover how physical therapy in a skilled nursing facility has changed over the years. In the author’s opinion, PT performed is much more robust than what it used to be. The information presented will cover many different types of programming that is utilized to allow for better quality of life for the short-term and long-term residents and how it can be measured utilizing the Medicare Quality Measure Ratings. It will also look at how much of the population is currently using SNF services for rehab and the
    projected population growth in coming years. To conclude the author will discuss some
    advantages of working in a skilled nursing facility, and the need for more physical therapists in the setting.


    Course Objectives:

    At the end of this course participants will have greater insight into the 

    following components of working as a PT in long term care:

    • Aging America
    • Experience and change of PT in SNF
    • Outcomes
    • Programming
    • Advantages and need

A native Oregonian she graduated from PT school in 2004, and much to her surprise, started working in skilled nursing. She then quickly started traveling as a PT, working in all settings except pediatrics. Jen settled into skilled nursing in 2008 and hasn’t changed since. She works for Eduro Healthcare as Lead Regional Therapy Resource.

    Course Description:

    Most of your patients are having sex while injured and/or post-operative, and no one is talking about it. Doctors are not discussing sex with their patients and rehab practitioners are hesitant to discuss options. In this course we will discuss why it is important to ask about sex and the best way to create a safe space to discuss sex. As a case example, we will discuss safe positions after a total hip arthroscopy. We will also discuss what you might not know about how people are having sex, including positions, toys, and sex with different genders.

    Course Objectives:

    At the end of this course participants will be able to:

    • Discuss why it is important to discuss sex with their patient
    • Learn how to create a safe space to talk about sex with their patients
    • Successfully determine safe sex positions for a patient following a THA
    • Consider options for patients who cannot have penetrative sex due to an injury, operation or pelvic pain
    • Challenge their beliefs about sex
