    Majority of the presentation are videos of actual patients performing dozens of different interventions that facilitate some type of anticipatory or reactive balance activity.

    A PT and 3 Registered Dietitians walk into a study with Pam Bartlo

    A PT and 3 Registered Dietitians walk into a study with Pam Bartlo

    Pam Bartlo is a clinical associate professor at D'Youville College, Vice President of the Cardiopulm Section of APTA, and a Cardio pulmonary PT at Mount St Mary's Hospital.







    We take a look at an interdisciplinary study she did with 3 registered dietitians about online nutrition information for people with type 2 diabetes. 







    They looked at the quality of websites providing nutrition information for people with diabetes and then the accuracy of that information.







    Here's what they found:







    * Overall there weren't a lot of websites that came up with diabetes nutrition search terms - 34 sites total to analyze.* 85% of the sites analyzed were quality websites based on Healthy People 2020 quality website crtieria.* None of the sites had >75% accuracy of the nutrition info provided based on the American Diabetes Association's Medical Nutrition Therapy Guidelines.







    Why does this matter to Physical Therapy?







    As PTs, especially in outpatient or cardiac care, we should be providing at least basic nutrition information to patients with diabetes.  It is important to know whether we can rely on websites to help augment or complete that education.  Based on these results, Professional Organization websites could help augment that nutrition education, but will not be accurate enough for full education. Therefore, we should work with our Registered Dietician or licensed Nutritionist colleagues to complete nutrition for individuals with diabetes.







    * Many people look online for information about nutrition and it may not be accurate.* Professional organization websites were the most accurate.* It is most important for patients to have in person consultations for nutrition education for diabetes.

    AOM – Annual Orthopaedic Meeting Preview with Arielle Giordano

    AOM – Annual Orthopaedic Meeting Preview with Arielle Giordano

    Arielle Giordano is the Associate Director of Physical Therapy and Residency Director at the University of Delaware.







    We talked about a Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) that will be published in early spring on the rehabilitation of concussion. This will will help to point us in the direction of how to treat concussion, what to look for and what tools are necessary. 







    Other guidelines focus on Primary Care, Sideline evaluation or Emergency department procedures but not treatment in those with chronic symptoms using Physical Therapy. The neck and the vestibular system are large areas of focus which we be reviewed in the Academy of Orthopedics Annual conference.







    Arielle will be presenting at the Annual Orthopedic Meeting from the Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy April 3-4 in Minneapolis Minnesota.







    We got into the large focus on concussion treatment being brought to the forefront by the media, especially in football and collision sports. Many children play sports which is causing parents to focus on whether they should allow their son or daughter to play in these sports.  Concussion is even more prevalent in all age ranges due to motor vehicle collision, assaults and falls.







    Our conversation focused on:







    * Resources* Perception* Outcomes
