Instructors for Clinical Education Concepts reached a huge milestone this month. We have now provided over 30,000 hours of continuing education to about 14,000 individual therapists.
Orthotists and prosthetists are teaching Clinical Education Concept’s course material in over 30 different states. And even though we are making significant strides in bridging the gap between O&P and the therapy community there is still so much work that needs to be done.
Physical therapists are lucky if they receive 3 credit hours of prosthetic training throughout their entire collegiate careers. The therapy community is eager to learn about treating people with limb and functional loss. Dermatological problems, gait issues, mobility, documentation…there is so much information to share.
Collaboration is important for people with limb loss to reach their full potential. Providing in-services is a great way to share knowledge and position yourself as the subject-matter expert in your community.
