Continuing Education

MPA offers several professional development courses to help meet your learning needs, which are discounted for members. Below is a list of the upcoming opportunities.

Wound Care Course

Workshop Description

This module will cover the scientific evidence and hands-on techniques for implementing interventions to address the underlying impairments that contribute to altered skin integrity. It is step 3B of an evidence based, multi-level educational program created in partnership with the Canadian Physical Therapy Wound Care Collaborative designed for physiotherapists. The module includes approximately two hours of on-line learning and an in-person 1-day workshop that will focus on safe exercise prescription and other physiotherapy interventions that are known to manage chronic leg edema, improve ankle ROM and calf muscle strength, provide effective offloading and/or pressure re-distribution strategies for people with diabetic foot ulcers or pressure injuries, and help patients with wounds manage pain.

The date of the course is  Saturday, April 28.

 

The course will be in Toronto at the University of Toronto Rehabilitation Sciences Building. 

Pre-requisites: Level 3B is open to physiotherapists who have previously completed Levels 1 and 2 of the OPA Wound Care Management program, who are currently rostered with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario for Wound Care, or those who practice under medical directive or delegation. 

Management strategies addressed in this course do not involve direct wound care, therefore, physiotherapists working in settings that provide care for people who have, or are at risk of, skin breakdown due to lower extremity edema, impaired mobility, and/or diabetes may also register for the course.
