RHS Providing Educational Opportunities in 2018
In 2018, RHS will be emphasizing our commitment to offering education for our health care team partners by providing in-depth and actionable sessions on a variety of topics.
The first of these courses will be geared towards physical therapists and will take place on January 24th at the Hampton Inn and suites at 325 N. Thompson Lane in Murfreesboro. The course will incorporate lecture and hands on workshops that are designed to make the determination of amputee functional levels objective and standardized. Attendees will receive both the benefit of the training course as well as being provided with valuable tools to use in their own practices.

Five Contact Hours Have Been Applied For Through TPTA
Course objectives include:
*The participant will verbalize rationale for having a PT determine a patient's K-level versus the prosthetist doing so.
*The participant will be knowledgeable in 3 objective measures standardized to LE amputees that PT's can use to help justify prostheses.
*The participant will correctly identify reasons to use the AMP test (both the AMPRO and the AMPnoPRO).
*The participant will verbalize understanding of how partnering with a PT strengthens patient outcomes.
*The participant will recognize contributing factors (beyond test scores) in determining patient's K-level/MFCL level.
*The participant will correctly communicate the patient's K-level determination in written documentation to help facilitate optimal prosthetic prescription and expedite prosthetic delivery.
*The participant will learn how the PT bills for AMP testing.
*The participant will recognize when a patient needs pre-prosthetic rehab in order to maximize their AMP score, allowing for a better prosthetic prescription.
Bethany Nelson, PT, DPT, will lead the sessions and Aaron Sorensen, CPO, LPO and president of RHS will also contribute to the sessions. Dr. Nelson has been teaching prosthetic rehab, emphasizing gait training to graduate-level PT students at GSU since 2005, and at Mercer University since 2010. She also teaches prosthetics students at Georgia Tech University. She teaches nationally for Freedom Innovations, Inc. a prosthetics manufacturer.
