Application of Concussion CPG Across Clinical Cases
The Concussion Clinical Practice Guideline serves as a tool in the implementation of evidenced informed evaluation and intervention strategies for individuals requiring physical therapy after concussion injury. Physical therapists play a vital role in identification and treatment of impairments contributing to continued symptoms. This course is designed to utilize case-based clinical reasoning to assist learners in application of the CPG in clinical context. 4 clinical cases will be presented in a grand round fashion that span the lifespan for immediate implementation into clinical practice. Contextual factors that also play a role in recovery will also be addressed to enhance experiential learning and real-world scenarios commonly encountered in clinical practice.
