Functional Testing and Skilled Documentation in Geriatric Therapy - Healthcare Seminar

PROGRAM DETAILS

Demonstrate patient progress with measurable, objective data
Changes in mobility and functional activities due to musculoskeletal and connective tissue degeneration, chronic pain, poor nutrition, and cardiopulmonary diseases are quite common in the geriatric population. Therapists must be equipped to effectively assess and treat this population. Additionally, there is increasing emphasis on the need for improved clinical documentation, as skilled documentation of therapy services and objective data is critical for reimbursement.

Functional tests can aid in the justification of and continued need for skilled therapy services. Learn to perform evidence-based validated tests and determine which tests are appropriate for certain patient populations. This course will improve your patient documentation and enable you to show patient progress with objective functional testing. Key areas of documentation will be included. Group activities will be used to improve skills for writing patient-centered goals and documenting skilled treatment interventions. A majority of course time is spent participating in labs and interactive group activities to aid in translating the information into everyday practice.

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• Discover functional tests you can apply to everyday practice immediately through labs and interactive activities
• Perform evidence-based, validated tests such as: Functional Reach, 2 Minute Step Test, Four Square Step Test, Timed Chair Stand Tests, and Berg Balance Assessment
• Determine which tests are appropriate for certain patient populations and provide measureable, objective data
• Demonstrate ability to perform functional testing for geriatric clients
• Identify which functional tests might be useful for specific patient diagnosis
• Discuss how patient test scores can be used to document patient progress and identify need for continued skilled therapy
• Develop and write objective patient-specific goals based on functional testing
• Identify ways to improve daily documentation skills
• Discuss the value of functional training


What You Should Bring
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring the following items:
• Ruler
• Timer or stop watch
• Tape measure

TESTIMONIALS

The presentation has changed my view on how I should document for current insurance standards. I have incorporated many of the quick, quantitative, and easily administered functional tests into my everyday evaluations.
Felicity Ruth-Crabtree BS, MS, OTR/L Kansas City, MO

I was able to put these skills and functional tests into my practice immediately. The speaker is knowledgeable and dynamic and the material is invaluable. I could not recommend this class more highly!
Katherine Zeiger, PT  Kansas City, MO

This course was very helpful in both functional testing and being able to document clear and concise goals for each patient. I can now identify how to do each specific test, what each test identifies, and how to apply the results to get specific goals for each patient.  Shelly Rippen, PT Kansas City, MO

I not only learned valuable information but had fun. The class was interactive and it held my attention along with giving me useful information about standardized tests for the geriatric population regarding balance, endurance, strengthening, and ambulation.
Kathy Sherrow, OTR  Kansas City, Missouri
