DPT 7125 - Advanced Clinical Practice I

Description
This course is the first of two advanced practice courses that emphasize comprehensive integration and application of knowledge and skills gained from previous outpatient and rehabilitation courses in the DPT curriculum. The course focuses on the physical therapy management of patients who have cumulative trauma/stress injuries, especially related to occupational injuries, and the management of clients with neurologic diagnoses both across the lifespan and care continuum. Pathology and management of patients with vestibular conditions and concussion, hand therapy, ergonomics, Workers Compensation rules/regulations, and psychophysiological responses to stress are among the topics addressed. In addition, further specific musculoskeletal topics will be covered including temporomandibular joint dysfunction, chronic pain, manual therapy progression, and pelvic floor health. Leadership/Administration projects will be presented as part of this course. Prerequisite: DPT 7100.
