New York State Occupational Therapy Association

The New York State Occupational Therapy Association (NYSOTA) is sponsoring “CE Day” on Saturday, May 3, 2014. Six different FULL DAY CE seminars will be offered throughout New York State. Each seminar will offer six (6) Continuing Competency Hours, as now required by the State. 
Maria OTA Chairperson, Scott Homer, MS, OTR/L, will present one of the six topics this Saturday on the following:

“Upper Extremity Anatomy Essentials for the OT Practitioner” 
Content Areas: Physical Disabilities, Education.  
When: Registration 8:00-8:30. Course to run 8:30 AM-4:00 PM
Where: Mercy College (Dobbs Ferry, NY)
Cost: Supported by Mercy College
A six hour interactive course designed to refresh and demystify content originally taught in OT education. OT and OTA practitioners from all settings will benefit from revisiting anatomy essentials viewed anew through the wisdom of practiced eyes and hands. An ideal learning experience for the busy practitioner who wishes an increased understanding of the intricate complexities of upper body anatomy without “hitting the books” again.  
Principles of kinesiology will be interwoven with review of the musculoskeletal and neurological components from the shoulder complex to the hand. Focus will be on surface palpation, visual inspection and identification of important landmarks for assessing function. Teaching methods include dynamic lectures brought to life through clinical examples, models, images and hands-on learning activities.
