Would you like a better understanding of contemporary rehabilitation practice and how current science should influence your clinical practice? Were you unable to attend IV STEP? Here’s your chance to find out what happened! In July 2016, the IV STEP conference brought clinicians, educators, and researchers together to explore new theory and research related to movement science, and to translate this into PT practice for individuals with neurologic conditions across the lifespan. The overarching goal of IV STEP was to foster, guide, and effect practice over the next decade.
IV STEP focused on four “Ps” (Participation, Prediction, Plasticity, and Prevention) as related to the roles and responsibilities of today’s physical therapists. This 2-day regional course will synthesize key messages and content from IV STEP, review the four “Ps,” and facilitate knowledge translation through participation in group discussions using case examples across the lifespan. Participants will gain new knowledge to inform physical therapist practice and research.
- Summarize the key themes of IV STEP as outlined by the 4 "P's"
- Identify how the IV STEP themes apply to current and future clinical practice
- Develop strategies to translate knowledge from IV STEP to various practice settings and individuals across the lifespan
- Translate IV STEP themes to clinical practice and educational curricula through the use of case examples
This course will be open to PT, PTA, OT, and COTA.
