The Why, What, and How of Cardiovascular Risk Stratification for the Outpatient PT
As a potential entry point into the health care system, medical screening is a vital component of the clinical examination. As physical therapists continue to advocate for direct access, screening for cardiovascular stability is warranted for patient safety, appropriate referral, and timely medical management. The potential for significant cardiovascular stress and response is present during rehabilitation, even during seemingly low-intensity activities. This course will present the physiology, epidemiology, clinical application, logistical models, and a how-to of cardiovascular risk assessment and screening in orthopedic practice. This course will discuss potential cost and time efficient processes for clinical implementation based on actual private practices. Registrants will also learn how to leverage this approach for marketing to both consumers and physicians.
