Increased awareness and knowledge of medical interactions that occur during a patient’s rehabilitation process will help drive optimal intervention processes, goal setting and attainment. Clinicians are also often being asked to coordinate patient care in settings without access to full medical charts or understanding of lab values for specific conditions.
This introductory pharmacology webinar was designed collaboratively to provide therapists with the knowledge needed about the principles of pharmacology and how the pharmacology of pain may impact a patient’s outcomes. Exploration of lab value parameters and therapy implications will also be discussed. Throughout the course, therapists will also learn to conduct effective patient interviews and documentation and reporting of medical concerns to other team members for quality care management.
At the end of this course, the participant will be able to:
1) Identify types of pain and medications related to pain management.
2) Conduct a thorough and complete patient interview to obtain full medical history
3) Understand pertinent chart information, how to read a lab report, and key parameters of lab values
4) Understand the pharmacological issues and the implications for rehabilitation services
