Please note this course meets once weekly throughout this scheduled series. 

This program was created to address the health inequalities that children and families in rural and underserved areas face when it comes to accessing specialists for the evaluation and treatment of BPBIs. These areas often have a scarcity of providers who specialize in treating this condition. Therefore, the author developed this program to bridge the gap in providing access to specialty care by enhancing the ability of community providers to care for children within their own community.

Course Format

This weekly virtual education session includes a lecture from an orthopedic physician and OT/PT, followed by 30 minutes of active learning activities and a Q&A session. 


Upon completion of this course, participants will:

  1. Demonstrate understanding of BPBI risk factors, anatomy, and different levels of injury
  2. Identify BPBIs and know how to appropriately triage referrals to orthopedic or neurology specialists.
  3. Demonstrate understanding of critical timelines in healing and competence with the most important stretches and therapeutic exercises to incorporate into play to decrease contractures and bone changes while building strength as the child heals following a BPBI.
  4. Understand the influence of social determinants of health, health literacy, psychosocial, long-term health, and participation concerns following WHO-ICF.
  5. Understand orthotic and adaptive equipment needs to facilitate function and/or prevent soft tissue and joint deformities.
  6. Understand non-surgical and post-operative protocols.
