Description: Pediatric physical therapists have a wide variety of choices for standardized tests and measures. The purpose of this continuing education course is to guide participants in evidence based decision making for optimal selection, administration, interpretation, and sharing results of pediatric outcome measures. Through actual case scenarios, participants will develop skills related to integration of standardized tests and measures into their practice settings. The ICF framework will be used to guide course discussion and content. This 14-week course will include 4 self-directed learning modules with pre- and post- test questions, and synchronous and asynchronous online case based discussion designed to support a community of practice where therapists share resources, successes, and challenges with learning and applying course information. Knowledge translation strategies will be discussed as a means to support sharing the information with professional colleagues, children, and families. Participants will develop skills related to knowledge brokering in order to disseminate the knowledge and skills gained from this course in their workplace.
