Free & Discounted Continuing Education Resources During the COVID-19 Response

During this challenging time, there are many volunteers and organizations working tirelessly to provide professional support. We want to especially thank the teams of volunteers from the Private Practice Section and the PACER Taskforce from the Cardiovascular & Pulmonary Section for their dedication and effort.

1. The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) is offering free access to Ageism First Aid, an online multi-module course designed to help change common negative misconceptions and myths about aging by replacing them with facts that should be common knowledge. The course will be free through 7/1/20 and takes about 2 hours to complete. Access the course here.

2. The Cochrane Library, the gold-standard of high-quality, relevant, accessible systematic reviews and other synthesized research evidence will be available for free here during the COVID-19 pandemic response.

3. The Science of Well-Being, Yale's most popular class ever is available free online. The course is designed to increase your own happiness and build more productive habits.

4. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has added several webinars and self-paced courses related to COVID-19, infection control and public health here.

      a. Did you know that the CDC’s Stopping Elderly Accidents Deaths and Injuries (STEADI) initiative is an evidence-based older adult fall prevention strategy? STEADI consists of three core elements: screen patients for fall risk, assess a patient’s risk factors, and intervene to reduce risk by giving older adults tailored interventions. The CDC offers STEADI Older Adult Fall Prevention Online Training for Providers for FREE, which can be found here.

5. PhysicalTherapy.com is offering a free CEU course (one course per license number). Use promo code 1FREECOURSE at checkout. You will not need a credit card.

6. The Cardiovascular & Pulmonary Section is putting together a comprehensive webinar called PACER (Post-Acute COVID-19 Exercise & Rehabilitation), a collection of 16 videos that will be FREE for members and non-members of the APTA. See the video on our section on their YouTube channel or through the APTA Learning Center. There are currently 5 videos now available!

As always, feel free to email us with any question or concerns at aptanjgerisig@gmail.com. We are here to support you!
