Course Description:

With the progression of Direct Access in the Physical Therapy world, it’s imperative that clinicians of all backgrounds have a better understanding of the medical screening process.  While a patient may choose to see a Physical Therapist first for general low back pain, the evaluating clinician should have a solid understanding of the evaluative process to determine if the patient is appropriate for treatment or needs to be referred for further diagnostics and a more in-depth medical evaluation.  In section 1, you will learn about a detailed interview process which will help with developing an algorithm for treatment and determining if this patient lies outside of your scope.  Using a thorough pain scale assessment, comprehensive interview and mindfulness of potential red flags you will feel much more comfortable determining the best course of action for the patient.

 

When looking at the direct access/medical screening model, multiple different approaches can be used. In section 2, the instructor will focus on a symptom based approach to medical screening and differential diagnosis.  The initial focus of this section is on pain and how it relates to various medical pathologies.  The second part of the course will focus on a wide range of medical diagnoses that are centered around various symptoms a patient might present with for joint, spine, upper and lower extremity regions.  Section 3, the instructor will take you through an in-depth discussion about a Systems based approach to medical screening and specifically how it relates to the cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, hematologic, Urogenital, Endocrine, nervous and integumentary systems.  At the end of this course, the participant should have a solid understanding of the medical screening model as it related to the rehab world.

 

Course Highlights:

  • Learn a Systematic use of medical screening for help with differentials
  • Review when to treat, when to refer and when to treat and refer
  • Review numerous medical diagnoses and their relationship to rehab focusing on joint conditions and spinal related pathologies

  • Learn the do’s and don’ts of medical screening relating to 7 different body systems
  • Differentiate between red and yellow flags relating to each system reviewed
  • Learn in depth about the Cardiovascular system and why screening is necessary for all patients
