The Cerebral Palsy Course, which was developed with the ICRC, is available for FREE in the trial area of PP+.
Over 8 weeks in September and October 2016 Physiopedia, in collaboration with the International Committee of the Red Cross, delivered it’s fifth Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on the topic of Cerebral Palsy (CP). 14,010 participants formally registered for the Managing Children with Cerebral Palsy course, this represented 179 countries and 84% were physiotherapists.
As if this wasn’t enough, things are getting bigger thanks to ProCert.
ProCert is a comprehensive continuing competence certification programme which awards CCUs based on the quality of the learning content. Over two years, The Federation of State Board of Physical Therapy (FSBPT), requires that you gain 30 CCUs to ensure you are still learning and developing as a clinician. A Whopping 2/3’s of the required CCUs can be gained by taking part in the CP course in your own time.
The course was a great success when it was released and it is now available to be completed at any time within PP+. The course outcomes were great and the evaluation forms after participants finished says it all.
This course changed the entire approach towards CP, not only for me but with the application in clinical setting, also for my colleagues. I got to learn not about the treatment through material but with videos and practical approaches in different countries. Especially the discussion forum really helped where different physiotherapists from all around the world shared their experiences.
