"The Determinants of Clinical Reasoning Underlying Behavior Management Decisions: A Pilot Survey of Pediatric Physical Therapy Practice"

On a daily basis, pediatric physical therapists must rely on their own clinical judgment to make decisions regarding patient care. Infant and young children’s behaviors during therapy may affect their progress toward established goals. Yet, little is known about clinical reasoning associated with managing therapy-related behaviors in these young patients. This webinar will highlight the results of a pilot survey study conducted to explore the opinions and beliefs of pediatric physical therapists related to behavior management, and to identify the main factors that guide their decision making in this area of practice.

Course Objectives:
Upon completion of this webinar, the participant will be able to:

  • Recognize the role of behavior management in building the provider-caregiver relationships in family-centered pediatric physical therapy practice.
  • Identify therapy-related behaviors exhibited by infants and young children and behavior management techniques most and least commonly used to address them.
  • Reflect on one’s own behavior management experience in clinical practice.
  • List factors identified by this research as contributing to clinical reasoning related to pediatric physical therapists’ decision making when managing therapy-related behaviors.
