Anatomy for Occupational Performance: Review and Cases
Saturday, December 08, 2018, 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM CST
Category: Events

Time: Registration 8:00 – 8:30
           8:30 – 11:30 and 11:30 - 3:30 lab

*Lunch on your own; numerous options within walking distance.

Location: College of St. Scholastica, Health Science Center, 940 Woodland Avenue, Room 338

Speakers: Dr. Christine McConnell. Dr. McConnell is a full-time faculty member in the Occupational Therapy Program at The College of Saint Scholastica. She teaches Anatomy for Occupational Performance and other courses related to adult rehabilitation for the OT Program at St. Scholastica.

Target Audience: OTRs and OTAs

Educational level: intermediate

Course Description: This course will provide a review of the neck, trunk, and upper limb anatomy specific to conditions addressed by OT. After case-based review of relevant anatomy, the lab portion will provide guided visualization of structures and functional pathways.  The aim will be to review the structural aspects of upper limb anatomy and discuss functional implications to practice.

Course Outline:
1. Through case discussion and slide presentation, review relevant anatomy of the upper extremity and approximate axial skeleton, including articulation and support structures, synergistic muscle groupings for function, vascular and relevant nervous system components;
2. Use of models and cadaver specimens in the lab to locate identified key tissues and structures;
3. Identify and summarize anatomical components for common conditions that impact function and occupational performance in participants’ treatment settings.


Learning Objectives:
1. Analyze regional anatomy emphasizing the functional relationship between musculature, nervous tissue, vascular, and skeletal components of the upper extremity and the axial skeleton towards function;
2. Identify surface landmark information with respect to localizing underlying anatomical structure;
3. Visualize anatomical structures and their functional relationships within the trunk and upper extremity of cadaver specimens;
4. Demonstrate respect for the dignity of the human being when studying from the cadaver specimens.


*This event will allow participants to receive 6 contact hours of CE. To complete this course and receive 6 contact hours of CE, participants must attend all six hours and participate in all course activities including lab and lecture.

This event will be capped at 18 participants due to space limitations in the lab. The cost for this event will be $60 for MOTA members and $100 for non-MOTA members.

Special needs request: Participants who sign up will be sent a link to view a video on ethical conduct in cadaver labs and a form to sign indicating the video has been viewed. Participants must print, sign, and bring the form to the class.
