The Online LSVT BIG Training and Certification Workshop trains physical and occupational therapy professionals and students in an evidence-based, intensive treatment protocol for individuals with Parkinson disease. The fundamental treatment principles and rationale, key treatment elements, efficacy data supporting treatment outcomes, details of treatment tasks, and practical delivery and marketing considerations will be covered. Teaching techniques include pre-recorded lecture, 99 video demonstrations, and case study presentations. Discussion will be included on application to other neural disorders and customization of treatment delivery to meet the unique functional goals of each patient. Knowledge review questions after each module and scheduled practice times ensure the highest levels of learning.

Teaching methods include pre-recorded lecture with PowerPoint slides (online and printed), video demonstrations, and knowledge review questions at the end of each module. An examination will be given at the end with an 85% score required to pass.
