Behavioral Objectives

Topic 1

Module I - Units 1-12

Unit 4: Examination of a Patient 

1. Explain 3 factors discussed that can impact self-assessment and the overall, potential outcome of the patient with a rotator cuff tear.

Unit 5: review of the Diagnosis

2. Explain 3 variables you need to consider when developing a post-operative RC rehabilitation program in both the non-athletic individual, and the young, overhead, throwing athlete.

Unit 6: The Classification and Treatment of Rotator Cuff Pathologies

3. Express 3 patient specific, potential, risk factors which may predispose a non-athletic individual to shoulder stiffness post RC surgery.

Unit 8: Biomechanics of Impingement Syndrome

4. Incorporate the 5 factors in the acute phase of impingement, into patient’s treatment plan.

Unit 9: Addressing The Loss of Motion

5. Identify 4 specific risk factors associated with developing stiffness in a patient following a rotator cuff repair.

Unit 10: Rehabilitation Following Rotator Cuff Repairs

6. Apply 3 manual treatment interventions in the immediate post-operative phase, Weeks 1-8 in the overhead, throwing athlete.

Unit 11: Medium to Large Rotator Cuff Tear

7. Recognize 3 clinical characteristics of the non-healing tear in a patient with rotator cuff disease.

Topic 2

Module II - Units 13-21

Unit 15: Conclusion of the Rotator Cuff Discussion

8. Describe 2 clinical observations associated with a dysfunctional arc in the non-athlete.

Unit 16: The Role of Dynamic Stabilizers in the Rotator

9. Relate 4 Dynamic Stabilizers in the Shoulder.

Unit 20: Rehabilitation Following Capsular Shift Procedure

10. Integrate 5 advanced strengthening phase exercises into treatment after rotator cuff repair.
