The Genomic Era Has Arrived. Are You Ready?

The genomic era of health care is upon us, and physical therapists must be prepared.

Greater access to direct-to-consumer genetic testing means that patients and clients will increasingly enter clinics with their genetic data in hand. Clinicians who are aware of the effects of genetic variants on health and disease will be distinctly equipped to devise individualized lifestyle interventions, while embracing their responsibility in prevention and wellness. 

CSM 2019 offers a special opportunity for the physical therapy profession to get ready for the genomic era with a session featuring Eric Green, MD, PhD, director of the Human Genome Research Institute at the National Institutes of Health, and Richard Shields, PT, PhD, FAPTA, whose 2017 Mary McMillan Lecture focused on precision physical therapy guided by genetic data.

Personalized Physical Therapy: The Time Is Now!,” cosponsored by all 18 APTA specialty sections/academies and APTA’s Frontiers in Rehabilitation, Science, and Technology (FiRST) Council, will occur Saturday, January 26, 2019, from 11:00 am–1:00 pm at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in downtown Washington, DC (attendees should check the CSM app for updated room locations).

“Dr Green is a world leader in genomics, and we are grateful for his participation at CSM,” said FiRST Council cochair Steven L. Wolf, PT, PhD, FAPTA, who will moderate the session. “All physical therapists, no matter their area of practice, must understand the Human Genome Project’s profound influence on the advancement of biological and medical science, and how it will enable physical therapists to provide better and more personalized care.”

To learn more about the session, read this Q&A with Shields and FiRST Council member Catherine Curtis, PT, EdD.

Course Description

 

This 2-day course will focus on the Physical Therapist Assistant’s (PTA) use of exercise as an advanced rehabilitation

intervention for the aging adult. Several common functional outcome measures will be actively performed by

participants or demonstrated by instructors. The physical stress theory regarding proper exercise intensity will be

presented. PTA’s will learn how to utilize this concept in exercise programs for aging adults, as indicated by the physical

therapy (PT) plan of care (POC), for aerobic conditioning, balance, gait and strength training. A variety of diagnoses

commonly treated in aging adults will be reviewed and discussed relative to the application of exercise principles,

treatment progression, and precautions. A discussion of barriers and motivation strategies to assist the aging adult in

achieving goals will be included. The course will include both lecture and hands-on practical lab activities

 

Spaces are limites so Register for this course early!
