OPP/OMT Integration Workshop

The Osteopathic Musculoskeletal Exam (OME) of the Hospitalized Patient and the Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) of Patients using Soft Tissue and Lymphatic Drainage Techniques

Vol #1:  This DVD presents The Osteopathic Musculoskeletal Examination (OME) of the Acutely-Ill Hospitalized Patient along with why, when and how to apply Soft Tissue (ST) and Lymphatic Drainage (LD) Techniques in the treatment of a hospitalized patient.  The DVD includes a lecture presentation of the topic that includes slides, notes, and demonstration videos of the OME as well as the soft tissue and lymphatic drainage procedures.  Where helpful, views of procedures performed on a skeletal model are also included.  Forms that can be printed include pre-and post-self assessment of learner's competence in the OME, soft tissue, and lymphatic drainage; critical action competency-based checklists for OME, ST, and LD which can be completed by workshop faculty after observing their successful completion by participants; and workshop evaluation.  The AOA glossary, rationale for the workshops, as well as helpful suggestions on how to conduct these workshops are also included.
