- An Introduction to Low Vision Rehabilitation for Occupational Therapists 2Course release date: 5/19/2021
About the Course:
This basic introductory course is intended to familiarize the OT practitioner, who may not have received low vision education or is not comfortable intervening with this population, with current evidence-based information related to the management of patients with low vision. The course content is designed to increase the reader’s understanding of and ability to generalize concepts into the OT process when working with patients experiencing occupational performance deficits due to low vision. OT practitioners will need to pursue further education if they wish to specialize in low vision rehabilitation.
- Introduction to Wheelchair Seating and Positioning 5Course release date: 4/17/2021
About the Course:
This course, designed to provide the healthcare practitioner with a broad overview of the assessment and provision of wheelchair seating, is written at a basic to intermediate-level for the occupational and physical therapist who have little or no experience in this specialty practice area. Many people require the use of a wheelchair for dependent or independent mobility, and each wheelchair provides some form of seating. Wheelchair seating directly affects a client’s position, which in turn affects function for all of that person’s daily tasks. It is essential that occupational therapy practitioners be able to competently participate as members of the interprofessional team in determining the optimal seating and wheeled mobility interventions for a particular client. Common diagnoses for a client using a wheelchair include cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, and muscular dystrophies.
