What are the occupational therapy programs offered by Columbia Continuing Education?

I have just finished a CPA continuing education course. My intention for pursuing this course is to help improve my education qualifications to boost career development within my field.

I understand that my field requires me to keep taking continuing education programs. Therefore, I am asking for advice on the occupational therapy programs offered by Columbia Continuing Education.

These programs coupled with the CFP continuing education classes I am presently attending will enable me to improve my efficiency at work and get a promotion.

Columbia University provides several continuing education courses that meet the educational requirements and interests of professionals in the clinical field. Qualified clinical educators educate you on the practice and modern issues affecting it. When coupled with other qualifications such as a CPA cont ed course, this class will guarantee advancements in your field.

Here are some of the highly-rated occupational therapy courses at Columbia Continuing Ed:

  • Unit 1- Improving the Life of People Living with Perceptual and Cognitive Impairments

Like some CFP cont education courses, this is an online class.

This class aims to provide you with current and exhaustive information on the perceptual and cognitive rehabilitation process. In layman’s terms, this is the act of improving function among those with perceptual and cognitive impairments.

In contemporary medicine, researchers, scientists, and clinicians like yourself are increasingly recognizing the significance of focusing on function-based patient evaluation, practical interventions that enhance the performance of regular and useful activities, limiting participation and finally improving the life quality for patients.

This program teaches all of this.

  • Unit 2- Caring for Lives of People Living with Perceptual and Cognitive Impairments

This course is the second standalone unit of the perceptual and cognitive impairments course. This online course is taught by Dr. Glen Gillen.

This class self-paced and is appropriate for you if you work with people who have limitations in everyday function due to perceptual, cognitive and visual impairment.

Topics that directly relate to interventions and assessments include apraxia, memory loss, neglect, attention deficits, agnosia, executive dysfunction, visuospatial deficits, reduced awareness, etc.

  • Unit 3- Improving Function for Those Living with Perceptual and Cognitive Impairments

This online course is based on three interrelated and overarching viewpoints: function-based, evidence-based, and client-centered.

This class and its teaching material focus on becoming an exhaustive information source for reliable and valid tools that use functional tasks as the basis of evaluation.

In this program, the emphasis is on mechanisms that have ecological validness- they show typical behavior in everyday activities.

Therefore, this focus restricts the infusion of evaluations that are not based on performance and use manipulated activities as the means for assessment.

Moreover, this course and text accept the infusion of regulated client feedback and other accurate reports of daily activity.

You will also learn about the necessary interventions that have been scientifically tested, and that demonstrate a positive impact concerning decreasing function restrictions and participation limitations.

There is an increased need to make therapists assess their patients using perceptual-cognitive dysfunction in a manner that is unique to the occupational therapy practice.
