It will review the screening techniques in lecture format; including the cardiac, pulmonary, head/neck, sensory and musculoskeletal integrity.

At the conclusion of this program, the learner will be able to:

  1. Identify the physical therapist's role in Primary Care per the American Physical Therapy Association's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice.
  2. Apply medical screening techniques to traditional examination procedures that result in a comprehensive examination scheme for all patients/clients across the lifespan.
  3. Perform physical examination techniques and medical screening procedures for the head, neck, chest, upper quarter and thorax.
  4. Differentiate normal from abnormal findings in the screening physical examination procedures.
  5. Recognize signs and symptoms from health history and screening that necessitate immediate medical referral when analyzing a case scenario.
