What are PT Pub Nights? PT Pub nights began in Oregon as a fun and effective way to bring physical therapy colleagues together. Pt Pub Nights are gatherings of professionals and students brought together to have conversations and share perspectives on not only physical therapy but life. PT Pub Nights provide opportunities for PT professionals and students to create new and build on existing relationships. Relationships create possibilities and it is through relationships that significant things happen. Why should I come?  Networking and building relationships have been described as the top reasons for attending PT Pub Nights. PT Pub Nights fills a desire for professional connections that are unable to be found anywhere else. Come make valuable connections and see what is able to be accomplished through one-to-one conversation and relationships. Who is invited? All PT and PTA professionals and students, WPTA members and non-members may attend! PT Pub Night is not a WPTA sponsored event, just a group of physical therapy professionals and students getting together for some conversation and fun! This is a professional event and professional behavior is expected.

Neurologic Outcomes Assessment: Beyond the Basics

WPTA LogoJune 7, 2014 at Marquette University

Course description

Are you seeing patients with neurological impairments? Does selecting, administering, and interpreting outcome assessments take longer than you have time for? G-codes got you stressed? This PEARLS course was created to provide clinicians with a current detailed look at selecting, administering, and interpreting appropriate evidence based assessments to support your G-code documentation in neurologic patient populations including Stroke, MS, SCI, TBI, Parkinson’s, and patients with vestibular impairments. Recommendations on outcome assessment use are incorporated from APTA’s Neurology Section EDGE documents and best of all, clinicians will have the opportunity to practice various outcomes assessments on patients with neurologic diseases during the course. No productivity standards to worry about, no patients to impress, and expert clinicians will be available to answer your questions while you administer various outcomes. A sample of outcomes assessments that will be covered include: Orpington Prognostic Scale, Trunk Impairment Scale, Mini Balance Evaluation Systems Test (BESTest), 12-item MS Walking Scale, High Level Mobility Assessment Tool, and Activities Specific Balance Confidence Scale.

Instructors: Abby Park, PT, DPT, Dawn Van Duyn, PT, DPT, Tina Stoeckmann, PT, DSc, MA and Bridget Morehouse, MPT, MBA
