A Comprehensive Evidence-Based Overview of COVID-19 Designed for Rehab Clinicians…
Get a Holistic ‘Whole Body’ Approach to Treatment Today!
As clinicians, we hear too many conflicting responses to important questions about SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) that are profoundly impacting patients’ quality of life and their independence.
Questions that you deal with everyday about ‘Long COVID' and how it impacts nearly every system of the human body, such as...
- How hard should you push symptomatic patients?
- How can you quickly modify your plan of care for comorbidities or complex symptoms for patients who have – or had – COVID-19?
- How do you treat functional limitations stemming from COVID-19?
Get straightforward, lasting solutions you need now to these questions and more by two global rehab leaders who’ve trained thousands of PT, OT and other rehab professionals like you for over three decades.
You’ll get practical, evidence-based strategies to meet the unique needs of your patients – in any setting or stage of their development – whether you’re in acute care, rehab or outpatient so you can quickly develop individualized, holistic and whole body treatment plans that include…
THAT’S NOT ALL – sign up today and get TWO FREE bonus modules (including 4 CE hours!) on ways you can protect patients from increased fall risk after having COVID and strategies to decrease stress, increase resiliency, and develop a healthy life-work balance to avoid burnout!
The dynamic rehab duo of Dr. Karen Pryor, PhD, PT, DPT, ND, CH, CFPS, and Shelly Denes, PT, CFPS, C/NDT, CGCP, brings science-based knowledge, unique case studies and step-by-step guidance for extensive clinical application for nearly every setting. They will help you build a solid foundation with clinical pearls from their combined 65+ years of experience.
This comprehensive self-paced, self-study training breaks down what SARS-Co-V2/COVID-19 and ‘Long Covid’ is and how it impacts nearly every system of the human body.
In two easy-to-follow video modules, you’ll learn how to:
- Perform a thorough evaluation for a patient with respect to Long COVID to identify functional limitations and deficits
- Conduct a complete neurologic assessment
- Assess contributions from related organ systems
- Construct an evidence-based plan of care to address the above findings in addition to considerations with brain fog, fatigue, pain, neuropathy, myalgias and sleep disorders
Best of all – you’ll get two FREE bonus videos added exclusively to this course.
($239.98 Value – YOURS FREE!)
Here's what you'll get...
- Boost your confidence in understanding neurological disease (such as COVID-19) and its progression regarding balance, fatigue, and proprioception
- Elevate your care – for your patients and yourself – by becoming more resilient amid time constraints and unrealistic caseloads
- Earn up to 4.0 CE Hours – at no additional cost to you!
Falls are NOT inevitable, even in individuals with neurologic diseases- rehab professionals may have a direct impact on this reality. Michel (Shelly) Denes, PT, CFPS, C/NDT, CGCP, knows early intervention is key to improved outcomes. Together you will investigate new models and the neurobiology of pathological fatigue as it relates to Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis.
In this bonus module, you’ll expand upon what you’ve learned in the first two modules about the science behind neuroplasticity, proprioception, muscle tone and balance and how it can be analyzed to reduce fall risk.
Are you experiencing feelings of physical and emotional exhaustion from the caregiving experience? Many become consumed by attending to others while failing to recognize our own needs. Is the experience leaving you feeling less effective as a clinician? Who takes care of the caregiver? All of these concerns can be reversed with mindfulness practices! Mindfulness may serve as an “Emotional CPR” while improving resilience and increasing compassion for our patients.
Engage with Clyde Boiston, PT, OCS, CMF, TCHI, in this bonus session to develop strategies to reduce the likelihood of experiencing professional burnout while learning how to utilize mindfulness to become a happier and more effective healthcare provider.
