Aquatic Critical Thinking and Aquatic Interventions (PT)

This course is pre-requisite for the Aquatic Physical Therapy Clinical Competency Certificate. The primary goal of this course is to assist the physical therapist in using a critical-thinking approach to making evidence-based clinical decisions in the aquatic treatment environment. A multifactorial approach to balancing risks and benefits of aquatic physical therapy are applied to specific patient scenarios for discussion and problem solving. The role of the physical therapist assistant (PTA) in assessment and decision-making also will be explored.
