The Next Big Thing: Clinical Outcomes in Athletic Training
1.00 BOC Approved Clinical Home Study EBP CEU's
COST: $ 29.99 - EXPIRATION DATE: 2019-12-31
The profession of Athletic Training has been calling for clinicians to participate in outcomes research for nearly a decade. While the need for this clinician facilitated research has been recognized, little progress has been made to adopt disablement models and engage in identifying Patient Oriented Evidence that Matters (POEM). Most evidence in the profession of Athletic Training would be defined as disease-oriented evidence Disease-oriented evidence is often related to pathophysiology and impairments from which we cannot deduce patient function. POEM is evidence resulting from studies that include outcomes that matter to patients allowing for better health-related quality of life. Clinician-based outcomes measures are likely to produce only disease-oriented evidence, where POEM results in patient-based outcomes measures. Participants will be introduced to disablement models, common clinician- and patient-based outcomes measures. These concepts will create a foundation for application of whole-person health care. We will guide participants through an example of how to apply these concepts to real patients using contemporary clinician- and patient-oriented evidence. Clinicians are often weary of the time and practicality of measuring clinical outcomes and/or participating in clinical outcomes research. However, we will dispel myths and discuss strategies to overcome perceived and actual barriers to implementation. Our goal is that participants will leave the session with the skills to measure their own clinical outcomes and engage collaboratively with other clinicians to provide practice that is based on the evidence.
