An Electrical Learning Opportunity: OTAC and Creighton University Provide Educational Seminar on Electrotherapy

March 1, 2017

The Creighton-Regis University Pathway OTD Program had the opportunity of welcoming their professor, Dr. Al Bracciano and many OT students and OT practitioners to Regis University campus on Saturday, February 18th for an educational seminar on electrotherapy. There was a great turnout for the educational seminar entitled, “An Evidence and Clinical based Approach to Electrotherapy in Hemiplegia.” Attendees had the opportunity to learn about the foundations for clinical use of electrotherapy and its impact on client factors and motor performance. Attendees participated in experiential lab components including single and dual channel applications of electrodes on the upper extremity using neuromuscular electrical stimulation. OTAC thanks the Creighton-Regis University Pathway for accommodating the event and a special thank you to Dr. Al Bracciano for sharing his knowledge on electrotherapy. We look forward to collaborating on more educational opportunities for OTAC members in the future!

Dr. Al Bracciano demonstrates how to place electrodes on a participant to promote functional reach while using neuromuscular electrical stimulation.

Driving and Community Mobility In Colorado

March 1, 2017

Driving and community mobility is a recognized IADL within the OT scope of practice and is addressed in the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain & Process, 3rd Edition. With our expertise and focus on function, OT practitioners are uniquely able to address this IADL.
 
To increase the ability for OT practitioners within the state of Colorado to address driving and community mobility, Terri Cassidy, OTD, OTR/L, CDRS at Penrose Hospital has received grant funding from CDOT. As part of this funding, she has established “The Fitness to Drive Community of Practice.” This online community is designed to provide members with opportunities to create and share evidence-based practice, build confidence in addressing driving with clients, and create best practice standards for Colorado practitioners. Please visit this site for more information.
