Kathy Fagan

PT, MPT, COFS, FSOAE, GTCCS, EOLD, GCS

Kathy graduated from the University of Evansville with a Master of Physical Therapy in 1996. Since then, she has worked in several capacities and environments within the PT world. She started out at Greenview Hospital in Bowling Green, KY, as a staff Physical Therapist. Within six months, she was offered a therapist staffing position in Lexington, KY. After a year in Lexington, her husband Mike joined the Marine Corps, and the family was relocated to Camp LeJeune, NC. Kathy started an outpatient clinic from the ground up in Jacksonville, NC. 2001 saw our family looking to move again, as Mike was getting out of the Marines and into law enforcement. The Fagan family moved home to the Nashville where Kathy worked in the home health setting, covering just about all of middle Tennessee. Kathy has also served as a clinical instructor for DPT students from Tennessee State University and Belmont University, and as an adjunct faculty member at Volunteer State Community College in the PTA program. In 2020 Kathy and her husband Mike opened their own outpatient clinic with a specialization in geriatrics. Both Mike and Kathy have continued their education, focusing on the geriatric population and providing evidence-based evaluation and treatment of movement and functional deficits. Kathy has earned the distinction as a Functional Strategies for Optimal Aging Expert (FSOAE), a Geriatric Trained and Certified Clinical Specialist (GTCCS), a Certified OASIS Field Specialist (COFS), and End of Life Doula (EOLD), and a Board Certified Geriatric Clinical Specialist (GCS). She was also national Physical Therapist of the Month for LHC Group January 2019.

Video Runtime: 162 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 7 Minutes

In this two-part course series, watch six real patients, experiencing a variety of common issues, expertly seen by a physical therapist/ physical therapist assistant team. This course series demonstrates effective evaluation and intervention of the older adult in any setting where PTs and PTAs work together. Optimizing the PT/PTA team approach with specific examples of standardized tests and evidenced based treatment techniques allows for effective delivery of best practice for your patients.

PT: As therapists, we face constant demands to provide the best level of care in the most efficient manner, and to document effectively for maximum reimbursement. In this course, you will watch evidence-based, effective, and well documented care as real patients are evaluated by an experienced PT, followed immediately with treatment by a PTA.

PTA: Using appropriate evaluation tools and documenting meaningful results allows the PTA to begin treatment without the need to spend valuable time reassessing the patient on the first treatment visit to determine the course of treatment. Having evidence-based protocols in place provide a starting point for the PTA to jump in and begin the delivery of a great therapy experience. We describe the most effective evidenced based management programs for common diagnoses including lumbar stenosis, knee OA, and peripheral neuropathy. Mike and Kathy provide examples of treatment programs, HEPs, and documentation of each eval and treatment.

Listen to both perspectives as a PT and a PTA provide their unique perspectives on how to work together to get excellent patient outcomes. This course series is a must for both PTs and PTAs working in any setting as a team. Mike and Kathy Fagan evaluate and treat 6 different patients in a clinical setting with focus on effective evaluation tools and EBM programs with progression, and the most efficient documentation of the evals and treatments. Part 2 covers patients experiencing Parkinson's disease, stroke, and dizziness.
