Description

2 CE Credits

The AMA Guide to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, 6th Edition has created a whole new paradigm in determining Whole Person Impairments (WPI). The criteria have changed as it is no longer allowable to utilize ranges of motion as criteria for impairment ratings.

This certification course covers all of the criteria needed along with the clinical rationale and training to understand the basics of the physiology and clinical interpretation required. The course also covers spine and neurological issues that are often seen in patients requiring impairment ratings for issues that transcend spine, which occur in the majority of spinal trauma cases.

This is a credentialing course where after completion you will be able to obtain a certificate of completion suitable for framing and displaying in your office. It is a 2 hour course. Where accepted nationally for online courses, this course offers 2 chiropractic continuing education credits certified by the New York State Department of Education.
