Please note that the application has been updated slightly, and verification of your current PT or OT licensure status is required (a photocopy of your current license is sufficient). Also a reminder to included all five articles used in the critical research review section.

PRI’s first affiliate course, PRI Integration for the Home Health Clinician was a wonderful success!  A big thank you to Jacob Mullin and First Call Home Health in Salem for being such a great host and for encouraging PRI to develop this course.  Also thank you to Emily Soiney and Shelly DeRuiter for so ably assisting me.  Attendees included both home health professionals (including nurses) and other outpatient/hospital-based clinicians that regularly work with geriatric patients. 

Our new geriatric assessment tests and the new appendix material were a big hit. The appendix includes a new 4 page Positioning Program, a 16 technique Group Exercise Progression, an 18 item Functional Routine recommendation sheet and 73 new PRI non-manual techniques divided into bed, recliner, seated, transfer, and standing sections.  So great to be teaching such a meaningful course for the geriatric population!

Feedback from course attendees:
“Loved the practicality and simplicity.  Excellent for higher level patients as well as geriatrics.”

“Even as an acute inpatient and outpatient PT I felt all the rehab objectives were met.  Great photo handouts, great manual and I loved the EBP part at the end.”

“Although this class was geared towards geriatrics, I found it to be the most applicable PRI class so far for the prevention of injury in all age groups- pediatrics, young athletes, etc.  And the interventions are easy to apply.  Thanks!”

“Thank you James for your “outside of the box” thinking and for your hardwork in creating this course and manual- you are changing a lot of lives.”

“Loved the course, the manual is great and the application was wonderful.  So happy for all the good photos we can use with our patients.”

“Excellent material and presentation, combining information from several PRI courses for home health application.”

“From an Occupational Therapist’s perspective, this course was excellent.  Thank you.”

And, here are some photos from the course this past weekend!

Ron Hruska will be teaching Postural Respiration in Lincoln on Sept 27-28th, and the early registration deadline is this Friday. In addition to receiving the early registration rate, please call us to receive a one time offer of 15% off tuition for this Lincoln course!

“I’m looking forward to Sept. 26-27th and the opportunity to teach how rib, and accompanying thoracic rotation is such an integrated necessity for cervical freedom. If you want to start your Fall off with a powerful “lift” consider this course. It’s an “added” course to this year’s schedule which will give attendees great one on one time with an instructor that’s passionate about maximizing rib potential!”

Well, once again I feel that I have neglected my summer reading series, but I hope to get a couple more posts completed yet this month. On Friday afternoon, one of PRI’s Twitter followers, tweeted a great article, which has now been added to the PRI Resource Center. AJ’s tweet attached to the article read “This is why head/neck position matters for all exercises including lower body.”

Some of you may have already seen this article which was published in the Chiropractic & Osteopathy Journal in 2005. The article, “Reflex control of the spine and posture: A review of the literature from a chiropractic perspective” does a great job summarizing the influence of visual and vestibular input on static upright posture.
