1. Utilizing ICF Guidelines
In Chapter One, Dr. Robertson describes the International Classification of Functioning and Disability (ICF) model and how it relates to physical therapist practice. Participants review the topic of clinical practice guidelines from an evidence-based practice lens. Dr. Robertson demonstrates how to integrate clinical practice guidelines via a case example and integrative questions.
2. Treatment-Based Classification
Chapter Two begins by reviewing the epidemiology of low back pain and its relation to classification systems. Dr. Robertson compares and contrasts treatment-based classification with other LBP classifications, and defines the process, benefits, and limitations of TBC system. Participants will learn to integrate evidence related to treatment-based classification to broadly published clinical practice guidelines to develop an integrative strategy for managing patients with low back pain.
