Upcoming Webinar: Eight Essential Things Physical Therapists Need to Know for Managing MSL Disorders

Date: Thursday, August 19, 2021
Time: 8:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. EDT
Speaker: Chad Cook

The program is designed to help clinicians think critically about several aspects that may influence the recovery process of patients with musculoskeletal disorders. Topics discussed will include:

  • Factors that influence self-reported outcomes the most.
  • Why minimally clinically important difference scores (MCIDs) are a faulty construct?
  • Randomized controlled trials don’t tell you who benefits from a specific intervention.
  • Effect sizes and why they are so low.
  • How and why Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) influence health outcomes?
  • What patients want from their care?
  • What are the ingredients of value-based care?
  • Areas of physiotherapy that are primed for medicalization and overtreatment.
