Course Objectives for PT/OT: 
This course will give the PT/OT/PTA/COTA a better understanding of commonly used surgical techniques for orthopedic impairments including joint replacement surgeries and fracture management.This understanding will allow the PT/OT to be more specific and more effective when designing the PT/OT Plan of Care and give the PT/OT/PTA/COTA a great understanding and awareness of (joint) precaution that may be in place. Having this understanding will allow the clinician to reintroduce functional activities faster to help return the patient to reach their prior level of function. A prime example would be the specific precautions that are in place for the Reverse Shoulder Replacement. This is a new and upcoming procedure and PT's/OT’s/PTA's/COTA’s will see these patients in their practice. Understanding the surgical approach, the reversal of the shoulder mechanics, and relying on the deltoid muscle to stabilize the shoulder, will help the PT/OT/PTA/COTA attending this course to appreciate the different rehab approach for this type of patient. Furthermore, understanding the rationale behind different weight bearing statuses with the various lower extremities orthopedic procedures, will allow the PT/OT/PTA/COTA to better integrate a patient’s ambulatory status into their level of activities
