This is a practical course designed to add an ergonomics piece to your current clinical tools that you can use in the clinic or out in the workplace.
Some of the things that will be covered in the course include:
- Ergonomic evaluations – How is this different from a “normal” physical/occupational therapy evaluation of a patient? What tools are out there for evaluating office ergonomics? What can you do in the clinic?
- Ergonomic equipment – How do you know what to recommend to patients/clients? Where do you go to find out? What should you “stock” in your clinic?
- Communicating with employers – How might an “ergonomic” report to an employer be different from your clinical notes to a physician? What is your role as a therapist in asking for an on-site ergonomic evaluation?
- The Bottom Line – How might ergonomics add to your clinic’s revenue? How feasible is it to go out to the workplace? What credentials do you need for this?
Goals and Objectives:
- Understand where ergonomics fits into the spectrum of patient/client care
- Cite at least 3 research articles that support the claim that ergonomic intervention can reduce the incidence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders
- Conduct an ergonomic assessment of an office workstation
- Discuss the pros and cons of various pieces of ergonomic equipment
- Refer to relevant resources for equipment and measurement tools
Contact Hours: 7
