The VCU Physical Therapy Neurological Residency Program will be hosting a continuing education event titled “Making Measurement Matter: Maximizing outcome selection and use as a Neurologic Clinical Specialist.” Making Measurement Matter is a case based course which will touch on a broad spectrum of neurological physical therapy practice including stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, brain injury, dizziness, and parkinsonian diseases. Lead by experts in the field, Drs. Amber Devers and Cheryl Ford-Smith, this day long course for physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, and physical therapy students will systematically address cases that rehabilitation specialists see regularly.
The APTA recognizes that outcome measures in a patient care setting are a critical component to the direct management of individual patients and the success of our profession. Being able to select the correct measure is essential in standardizing patient care and evaluating the success of physical therapy intervention. By the end of this course you will be proficient in selecting, performing and evaluating patients using standardized outcome measures.
Coffee, light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Registration is limited to 25 individuals due to the nature of the material and the design of the course.
