Product Overview

Program description: With thirty years of evidence suggesting psychosocial barriers exist after upper extremity injury, physicians and therapists are looking for pragmatic solutions. Assessing a full occupational profile and addressing individual coping strategies is one solution. This course will present a novel evidence-based protocol as a guide to addressing psychosocial needs among the upper extremity injured (UEI) population. Assessment options for psychosocial impacts of UEI including the AOTA Occupational Profile Template (OPT) and patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures will be presented. Specifically, the Brief-Coping Orientation to Problems Experienced Inventory (COPE) will be explored as a potential tool for defining and creating collaborative SMART goals addressing psychological or social barriers to adaptation. Individualized interventions based on the SMART goal development will be discussed using case scenarios. Reference materials include the OPT, the Brief COPE and a case study vignette.

Learning Objectives:

         Explore evidence on psychosocial impacts of UEI

         Demonstrate the compelling need for hand therapists to incorporate well-being assessments

         Provide resources for delivery of care

         Consider current practice patterns

         Discuss the value of the hand therapist therapeutic relationship

         Acknowledge areas of need to further the hand therapist impact
