PTs Prescribing Disability Parking Permits

This course is available online and on-demand.

Course Description

The Minnesota Chapter of APTA worked this session to pass legislation that authorizes PT's to prescribe Disability Parking permits, beginning August 1, 2019. As a key part of a patient's recovery, the PT is in a perfect position to recommend and prescribe a disability parking permit. Taking on this role can save the patient time, effort and money as well as free up time for the surgeon/medical professional and reduce the administrative burden. As PT's begin to take on this responsibility, we want to make sure they are equipped with the knowledge of how to do this. We at the MNPTA worked with the MN Council on Disability and the MN Department of Public Safety to better understand the correct procedures so that we can help PT's stay within the guidelines of who is eligible for permits and what length of time they can be allowed. This course will train the PT to thoroughly assess and appropriately prescribe the disability parking permit for their patients.

Course Description

International Spine and Pain Institute (ISPI) in partnership with Evidence In Motion (EIM), has designed a unique learning opportunity for PT’s and PTA’s to advance top of mind awareness to Choose PT first.

Pain is complex. New paradigms of pain such as neuromatrix, nerve sensitivity, endocrine and immune responses to pain and neuroplasticity have opened various exciting non-pharmacological options in the treatment of pain. One such approach is altering what patients think and believe about their pain. It is well established that patients often have faulty beliefs regarding pain, which consequently may increase fear, catastrophization, pain and disability. The paradox is that patients are interested in pain as well as how pain works. Growing evidence supports that teaching patients more about the neurophysiology and biology of pain allows for decreased pain, increased movement and function, various decreased psychometric measurements and higher compliance with therapy. This online  self-paced, self-study series of lectures, based on the latest neuroscience view of pain, aims to help health care providers update their knowledge of pain and apply is clinically today.
