Rehabilitation professionals must conduct thorough and detailed assessments to create appropriate and efficient therapy plans of care and interventions. Often, rehabilitation professionals do not have direct access to advanced medical diagnostic and imaging equipment. They must, therefore, rely on assessment techniques that can be performed at the bedside to assist in determining therapeutic interventions and the need to refer to other medical disciplines. This webinar explores the assessment of patients with lower limb impairments using patient case studies and the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) model as a framework. The assessment techniques covered in these webinars are explored in more depth in the 2023 MOOC on Understanding Basic Rehabilitation Techniques.


This webinar aims to empower rehabilitation professionals to confidently assess patients with lower limb impairments using patient case study examples to reinforce learning.


This webinar recording consists of a 60-minute video and additional resources.
