Winter/Spring 2013 Class Registration Form
June 7-9, 2013
This course will challenge the practitioner to make a paradigm shift; acknowledging the importance of the cardiopulmonary system as an integral component of postural control. The speaker will present a model of postural control (Soda Pop Can Model) that demonstrates how breathing mechanics are linked to motor and physiologic behaviors. This is the cornerstone for the speaker's multi-system clinical approach to the evaluation and treatment of trunk and/or respiratory impairments. She will demonstrate how to integrate the cardiovascular, pulmonary, musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, integumentary and internal organ systems into every evaluation and intervention, as well as how to recognize physiologic causes or consequences that may accompany these motor dysfunctions. The speaker will show the participants how to effectively pair ventilatory strategies with specific movements in order to establish the pulmonary system as an asset rather than a liability for their patients, regardless of whether their original diagnoses were physiologic or physical. The emphasis of the presentation will be on developing and applying practical quick clinical solutions that are applicable for both pediatric and adult patients in all practice settings.

This course will cover and review the necessary components of documentation required to support the need for therapy services and the provision of skilled treatment by the clinician. With ongoing changes to regulatory and third party payer requirements, it is essential for therapists to stay current with the criteria utilized for determining medical necessity and the provision of reasonable and necessary services when documentation is audited. Definitions of key documentation terms will be reviewed, tips will be provided to help strengthen the content of your documentation as well as a discussion on how to minimize your risk as an organization and practitioner through use of audits and quality improvement activities. Case studies and small group discussion will be used to provide opportunities to apply techniques discussed throughout this session. Participants are encouraged to bring a sample of their documentation to use during the course as part of their own "self-audit". A documentation tool-kit will be provided to pull the information together and allow the clinician to immediately implement these strategies in clinical practice.
