On April 11, 2012, Allied Health Education launched its new continuing education website. We are thrilled to be able to offer physical and occupational therapists quality continuing education that is both convenient and relevant. Our courses are also applicable to athletic trainers, certified strength and conditioning specialists, and personal trainers. We are proud to be an approved provider with the Board of Certification and look forward to developing courses that appeal to both the trainer and the therapist.
Variety is an important aspect of our company as we will strive to offer an array of topics and several teaching methods to accomplish our goals. For those who prefer to study at home, we offer the convenience of the interactive online course which is accessible 24/7 as well as the webinar for those who prefer to participate in a live event. In addition, we offer the live
seminars for those who prefer the in-person “hands on” course.
We are committed to providing our customers with the most current evidence-based information delivered by speakers with expertise in their field. There are many exciting webinars and seminars coming this summer and fall, so register early. Dr. Beth Shelly, DPT, WCS, BCB, will be teaching an introductory webinar on physical therapy for urinary incontinence with relevant information for those seeking to expand their practice or specialize in women’s health. Then later in June and July we will have three different webinars addressing the shoulder. Jaime Holt, MPT, CSCS, will begin with his webinar entitled, “Treatment and Rehabilitation of Orthopedic Shoulder Conditions,” followed by Brian Schiff, PT,CSCS, with a webinar on SLAP tears. In late July, Jason Vian, MS, MBA, ATC, CSCS, will address shoulder pathology and how it relates to thoracic hypomobility.
There are also many interesting upcoming seminars. These include a seminar by Dr. Carlos Ladeira, MPT, EdD, FAAOMPT, which will provide instruction in differential diagnosis and management of neck pain. Dr. Paul Canavan, PhD, PT, DPT, ATC, CSCS, will offer a comprehensive course on the hip and the knee incorporating the latest research findings. Dr. Carole Burnett, PT, DSc, Ed.M, will offer her expertise in her course on balance training for the older adult with neurological disorders. Finally, Shoshana Shamberg, OTR, MS, FAOTA, will provide a course that will be appealing to both occupational and physical therapists especially those working in the home health field. Her course will address accessibility, home modifications and assistive technology.
We are excited about the webinars and seminars that will be held in the near future. Please remember to view the Allied Health Education webpage frequently for
upcoming new courses, information and news.
