Team-based Learning: Clinical Decision-making Across the Lifespan

Saturday, November 10
10:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Location: Ballroom J - Convention Center

Join your colleagues during this session for dynamic group discussions about best practice in pediatric physical therapy. Attendees will participate in Team-Based Learning activities, sharing their knowledge, experiences, and skills, to problem-solve and come to a team consensus on clinical decisions. Participants will review a case study that is designed to address pediatric physical therapy across the lifespan, incorporate multiple practice areas, and stimulate critical thinking. Team-Based Learning is an instructional strategy that uses a set of structured activities to create active, energetic, collaborative learning environments. Information designed to support individuals’ ability to participate in the activities and clinical decision-making will be provided prior to APPTAC to those registered for the session. This session will take place in multiple rooms.
