Evidence-Based Interventions Beyond the Typical Protocol
Total joint arthroplasty is the most common surgical procedure performed in the U.S. However, as surgical advances and prosthetic implants improve annually, the therapeutic process and protocols used with this population have remained stagnant. In addition, the recent push to reduce length of stay and therapy visits while increasing functional outcomes and activity levels makes the clinician's job even more critical. With total joint procedures doubling the past decade and trending upward, today's clinician must possess a stronger understanding of the techniques used by surgeons, the prosthetics commonly (and uncommonly) used, and evidence-based treatment strategies determined not just by their referring surgeon but by current research.



This course particularly discusses the latest surgical and minimally invasive techniques used and the benefits and risks associated with these techniques. Taking over 1,000 nationally established joint protocols, presenter Trent Brown, MOT, OTR/L, BCG, summarizes the most effective and functionally relevant treatment strategies and protocols. Demonstrations and labs will occur to ensure application of material and immediate carry- over to the clinical setting. Mr. Brown will also discuss documentation techniques and examples to strongly justify the need for skilled services with this population in hospital, in-patient, acute, home health, and outpatient settings.
