The Advanced Competency in Home Health program is a hybrid program consisting of core and elective on line modules and a 2-day live face to face course. This 2 day, 15 hour course is designed to complement and build on the core modules of the Advanced Competency in Home Health program. During the two day program, participants will revisit and practice skills required for quality cardiopulmonary, orthopedic and balance assessments that will be integrated into clinical vignettes. Participants will use these skills to support a thorough but efficient OASIS start of care or physical therapy evaluation in the home setting. Throughout the 2 day program, ethical and regulatory issues, as well as documentation will be incorporated into clinical case studies. Participants should be able to take the skills covered back to their home health settings and incorporate them immediately into patient care.

CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS: Attendees should be knowledgeable about their state continuing education requirements. The Home Health Section does not apply for CEU approval to all states that require it, only to those we anticipate are most pertinent to the course, based upon location. Many states provide individual licensees with a means of obtaining credit and some states will automatically accept for credit courses sponsored by an APTA component. You'll find contact information for your state licensing board on the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy website.

The Home Health Section is an approved CE provider by the State of New York. As an APTA component, the Home Health Section is a pre-approved provider of PT continuing education in the State of Pennsylvania.
