    For the first time since 2010, APTA-MT will have a HILL DAY on February 10th in collaboration with the Montana Occupational Therapy Association and the Montana Speech Language Hearing Association. PLEASE SAVE THE DATE AND JOIN US IN HELENA IN THE CAPITOL’S ROTUNDA from 11-1pm! For more information, please email sam@alpineptmissoula.com, or email the office by replying to this email. This event is an opportunity to meet our representatives, share about our profession, and have a presence in numbers. Thank you in advance for your participation and interest in this event!



    HILL DAY IS HERE FOR 2023!!

    What is this? It is a day that the Allied Professionals of Montana meet our lawmakers and share what we do. The Allied Professionals are SLP, OT, and PT professionals.

    How do I participate? The best way is to SHOW UP come in person to the Captial's Rotunda to have lunch and talk with lawmakers about what our profession offers. We also have stations like balance or movement screens that you can be a part of.

    What would I talk about? APTA-MT will have talking point cards for you as starters and related handouts to share as you mingle. Primarily, the message is access to PT SAVES HEALTHCARE DOLLARS. The research and practical experience is deep and evident - when patients are able to access PT first and easily there is a significant reduction in total cost of MSK care and unnecessary disability. We will have infographics on the research that supports this, we will have patient testimony, and we would love to have you share any stories you have that reflect this message. PTs transform lives through movement!

    When is it? Friday, February 10th, 2023. We will be present from 9am to 3pm. The key time will be 11am to 1pm to meet with lawmakers. If you cannot make lunch time, please know we can still use your help before or after!

    Why is this important? If we are not at the table, we will be on the menu! We need to educate lawmakers of our role in healthcare as they make critical decisions around policies that impact our ability to provide care from reimbursement to administrative burden to licensing.

    RSVP/Questions: Please contact montanapt@aptamt.com

    SHARE THIS EVENT: Please share this with others via social media or forwarding this information! Thank you for your support!

    1 hour CE, Category A


    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

    About the course:

    Course Description:

    This 2-day, interactive workshop provides the participant with clinical insights, assessment and treatment tools, and a prevention-based perspective for optimizing short and long-term outcomes with a spectrum of activity-related lower back pain disorders. The conundrum to be solved is ‘although research evidence is clear that activity and exercise is critical to the prevention and management of lower back pain disorders, the most common cause of limited activity and exercise avoidance is low back pain’. The Duffy-Rath System© provides the clinician with tools to help patients and prevention clients overcome or avoid this conundrum. The nickname to the approach is “Tools To Fight Back®”.

    Course Goals:

    To promote a prevention-based approach to the assessment, treatment, and prevention of activity-related musculoskeletal disorders and disability by addressing how physical therapy contributes to solving a series of problems created by lower back pain. This workshop will illustrate how this is optimized through independent practice.

    Course Objectives:

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

    • Define the role of a prevention-based physical therapy approach to a spectrum of activity-related low back pain (ARLBP) disorders.
    • Identify the basic clinical characteristics that distinguish the most common sub-groups of ARLBP disorders.
    • Perform the basic examination procedures needed to the presence or absence of signs that distinguish the sub-groups.
    • Demonstrate application of an activity-focused therapeutic procedure to gain control of the relevant signs and symptoms of a sub-group through patient simulation.
    Instructional modalities include: PPT lecture, practical ‘hands-on’ sessions, video review, practical demonstrations, group presentations, self-assessment, questions & answer session

    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.
