This course will introduce clinicians to best practices for performing Telehealth interventions. Telehealth continues to be a widely used patient care model and there are differences in providing patient interventions during a telehealth visit when compared to an in-person visit. This course addresses these differences by providing alternate strategies for interventions that clinicians can directly apply to their practice in a telehealth model. This course will cover remote interventions related to neuromuscular re-education, joint/muscle mobility, muscle performance, and patient education

1. Getting Started

This chapter will cover the basics of getting started with implementing telehealth interventions. This includes resources to give to patients, that indicate the rehabilitation tools they have available and instructions on how to adapt household items into rehab tools. You will also be introduced to the four categories of interventions: neuromuscular reeducation, joint/muscle mobility, muscle performance, and patient education.

2. Neuromuscular Reeducation

In this chapter, you will learn how to utilize verbal, visual, and tactile cues to improve your ability to perform neuromuscular reeducation in the telehealth environment. There may be situations during a telehealth visit where it is difficult to use more than one type of cue, so it is helpful to gain proficiency in all forms of cueing remotely. This chapter will cover each type of cue and will provide strategies on how to integrate motor learning principles into your remote practice.

3. Joint and Muscle Mobility

In this chapter, you will review the research on joint and muscle mobility interventions. You will go over many options for patients to self-perform joint mobilizations, soft-tissue mobilization, and stretches. You will learn how self-performed mobilizations can be as effective, or in some cases more effective, than clinician-assisted mobilizations. Additional resources will be provided to show how to adapt clinician-applied mobilizations into creative patient self-mobilizations.

4. Muscle Performance

In this chapter, you will learn how to dose muscle performance exercises remotely based on strength, hypertrophy, power, and endurance parameters. You will go over telehealth clinical scenarios addressing how to prescribe muscle performance exercises based on patient goals and functional positions.

5. Patient Education

In this chapter, you will be introduced to the VAK model and taught how it can be applied to patient education during a telehealth visit. You will go over various forms of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic education modalities and will learn how to tailor your patient education remotely by matching education delivery methods to a patient's preferred learning style.
