IJATT Part IV: Evidence-Based Practice Print CE Course

$148.95 CAD


Product Format
    The course components are delivered as follows:
    • Seven evidence-based practice articles from the International Journal of Athletic Therapy and Training
    • Continuing education exam (accessed online)
    This continuing education course consists of a collection of seven evidence-based articles originally published in the International Journal of Athletic Therapy and Training (IJATT). The articles address topics commonly encountered by athletic trainers, including athletic training practices in different countries, the experiences of female athletic trainers providing care to male sport teams, the efficacy of modalities such as cold water immersion, and the effectiveness of Kinesio Tape. The articles are followed by an online exam containing 75 questions. Upon passing the exam, you may print out a certificate and submit it for continuing education credits.

    IJATT Part IV: Evidence-Based Practice CE Course supports the initiative in the athletic training profession to integrate the best new research and evidence into clinical decision-making, with the goal of improving patient outcomes.

    Learning Objectives
    After completing this course, you will be able to do the following:
    • List the physiologic adaptions experienced by athletes when their body temperature rises to thermal strain.
    • Summarize how cold water immersion has been proven to reduce thermal strain and fatigue for endurance exercise in hot, humid environments.
    • Define kinesiophobia.
    • List the biopsychosocial impairments that patients can develop following musculoskeletal injury, leading to kinesiophobia.
    • Explain how effective application of Kinesio Tape may decrease kinesiophobia in patients with musculoskeletal pain.
    • Describe the effectiveness of mouthguards in preventing concussion.
    • Summarize the conclusions from the literature that investigates the protective effect of mouthguards on concussion rates in the sport of rugby.
    • Describe the challenges that women athletic trainers face when providing medical care to male athletic teams within the collegiate setting.
    • Explain the perceptions of female athletic trainers who provide medical care to male student-athletes within the collegiate setting.
    • List similarities in the patterns of practice of athletic training and therapy professionals in three Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) countries—the United States, Canada, and Ireland.
    • Describe why it is essential to examine the consistency of athletic training and therapy professionals’ practices across countries and their respective cultural, social, and economic influences.
    • Define bicuspid aortic valve disease (BAV) and how it pertains to sudden cardiac death in athletes.
    • List symptoms an athlete may present from BAV that may require further diagnostic testing.

    Jennifer M. Medina McKeon, PhD, ATC, CSCS, is an assistant professor in the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance at Ithaca College in New York. Her academic and research interests include functional anatomy and pathoanatomy, biomechanics, sport injury epidemiology and time-to-event analysis, evidence-based practice, and clinical analysis of risk factors associated with lower-extremity injury. She has received funding from the National Institutes of Health and has presented her research at the local, national, and international levels.

    Patrick O. McKeon, PhD, ATC, CSCS, is a BOC-certified athletic trainer who joined the Ithaca College athletic training faculty in 2013. McKeon’s research focuses on functional alterations associated with lower-extremity joint injury, specifically ankle instability. He incorporates patient-, clinician-, and laboratory-oriented outcomes to evaluate alterations that result from injury and rehabilitation. McKeon seeks to develop a greater understanding of the restoration of sensorimotor function associated with musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
