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.

Audience: Physical therapists


After completing this program, participants will be able to do the following:

  1. Demonstrate and interpret appropriate tests and measures for the cardiopulmonary system
  2. Demonstrate and interpret appropriate tests and measures for the musculoskeletal system
  3. Understand the implications of medications within the home health setting, on patient function and health status
  4. Discuss ethical issues for the home health therapist
  5. Identify strategies for an effective and efficient OASIS start of care
  6. Correlate clinical and functional findings to OASIS data collection items
  7. Identify skilled documentation and justification of therapy services
