This course will provide participants with a full spectrum of knowledge and techniques to evaluate and treat people with cardiopulmonary conditions in all practice settings. This course was developed to help those who are trying to prepare for the Advanced Practice Boards, as well as help those who are planning to teach this content in DPT programs.

Both speakers are passionate about discovering new ways to teach cardiopulmonary physical therapy topics and improve the health of people with cardiopulmonary conditions. Cannot attend this course?
