This DVD-formatted instructional course helps occupational therapists integrate electrical and thermal agent modalities as a preparatory intervention in practice to improve client-centered and occupation-based outcomes. Evidence that identifies the effectiveness of each electrical and thermal modality intervention is presented as well as the step-by-step practical application of each device.
Course content provides the theoretical and biological concepts of each electrical and thermal modality in a format that includes lecture, demonstration, PowerPoint™, online discussion board, and case studies, with an emphasis on treatment planning and assessing outcomes. It is designed to assist learners in obtaining the training and continuing education they may need to comply with state certification requirements related to the use of physical agent modalities by occupational therapists. Check with your state licensing or regulatory board to determine if there are such specific requirements in your state.
