Translating Current Research for Better Patient OutcomesProgram Date: Sept.26, 2013

Estimated Time: 1 hour


This activity is jointly sponsored by Medical Education Resources and National Stroke Association.

Accreditation for this program has expired. This program is for informational purposes.

Program Overview

Research has shown that physical and occupational therapists demonstrate a positive attitude about evidence-based practice and are interested in learning or improving the skills necessary to implement such practice; but they currently lack the knowledge of how to access such information (Jette et al., 2003).

This webinar will offer tips and tools for assessing evidence-based research and putting it to practical use right away. There will be demonstrations from research websites and examples of treatment modifications based on the new evidence. JJ Mowder-Tinney, PT, PhD, NCS, C/NDT, CSRS, and Katie Schweitzer, OTR/L, will share knowledge from their respective disciplines.

Goals and Learning Objectives

The goal of Translating Current Research for Better Patient Outcomes is to offer strategies for using evidence-based research in current patient care. As a result of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Review locations to find evidence-based physical and occupational therapy treatment resources.
  • Compare and contrast differing approaches using evidence-based resources.
  • Discuss how to structure and modify evidence-based interventions for the realities of the clinic.

Target Audience

The target audience for this program is physicians, physical therapists and assistants, occupational therapists and assistants, and healthcare professionals who provide rehabilitation care to stroke patients.
