This course provides manual therapists with an understanding of the risks an immunocompromised patient faces when they leave their home, and how they can adjust their practices to protect and better suit the needs of this patient demographic. The course prepares the therapist to take advanced precautions against the spread of infection, as well as to consider the patient’s underlying conditions in order to ensure the patient is safe and comfortable throughout treatment.
It also explores various considerations such as policies, procedures, and communication with patients and other healthcare professionals. The information is tailored to prepare therapists for work with immunocompromised patients, whether they treat them occasionally or regularly, as well as in the clinic, mobile, and inpatient settings.
