Pediatric Physical Therapy Functional Outcome Measures
August 22 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm MST
In recent years, the American Physical Therapy Association has stressed the importance of the use of standardized, functional outcome measures to assess patient progress and intervention effectiveness. This course provides a general overview of functional outcome measures that are commonly used in pediatric physical therapy practice and is designed to develop therapist knowledge of selected functional outcome measures across levels of the ICF. Outcome measure administration and interpretation, based on current research related to functional outcome measure normative data for pediatric populations, will also be discussed. This course will provide clinicians with additions to their “PT Toolbox” that can incorporated into clinical practice the following day.
The course will be a combination of lecture and video instruction.
