Course title: Current Concepts in an Evidence-based Approach to Examination & Treatment of the Hip
Target Audience: The content within this course in relevant and appropriate for the 1) Physical Therapist whose caseloads consist primarily of orthopedic injuries/disorders of the hip 2) PTA by reviewing the anatomy and biomechanics of the hip with function as well as the surgical procedures and post-op rehabilitation guidelines for common athletic hip injuries and hip arthroplasty and 3) the Family Practice physicians by reviewing the role of various diagnostic imaging techniques and clinical tests that assist with assessment of hip dysfunction and who are looking for evidence based clinical screening methods used in differential diagnoses of patients with hip dysfunctions/pain.
Course description: This course emphasizes the use of an evidenced-based approach to both assessment and treatment of hip dysfunction. Topics include: relation between the anatomy and biomechanics of the hip with function, role of diagnostic imaging in assessment, clinical tests to assist with differential diagnosis, surgical procedures and post-op rehabilitation guidelines for common athletic hip injuries and hip arthroplasty, manual therapy intervention techniques, evidence-based therapeutic exercises, and a review of existing clinical practice guidelines regarding assessment and treatment of hip pain.
Course objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
1. Correctly identify five key components of a patient history used during a hip examination that aid with differential diagnosis of a patient with hip pain.
2. Accurately apply the clinical test(s) and/or diagnostic imaging technique(s) used in differential diagnosis for a patient with hip pain.
3. Accurately identify at least two clinical tests that would be used and what the diagnostic imaging results would be in a differential diagnosis of a labral tear.
4. Accurately analyze two competing diagnoses utilizing a structural biomechanical screening test for a patient with hip pain.
5. Identify the specific clinical patterns of behavior associated with each of the following conditions of the hip; arthritis, tendinopathy, labral tears, nerve entrapments and instability.
6. Concisely articulate the standard surgical approaches applied in the management of arthrosis, labral lesions and hip fractures with at least two different approaches for hip joint replacement included.
7. Design an evidence-based plan of care for the management of each of the following: hip arthroscopy, labral repair and hip arthroplasty.
8. Compare three evidence-based interventions, including manual therapy techniques that restore functional mobility and strength of the hip for a patient following hip arthroscopy.
9. Accurately articulate three evidence-based clinical practice guidelines (CPG's) for assessing and treating patients with hip pain.
This course will utilize a self-assessment tool, post-test and course evaluation as methods of assessment of learning. 70% required on post-test to get the completion certificate.
Class size limited to 30.
