Under the CMTO’s new Quality Assurance Program (STRiVE), courses are no longer granted approval by the CMTO. It is up to the learner to demonstrate that a course is relevant to their learning goals and the STRiVE competencies. We have provided the description below to help the learner link the course to the STRiVE competencies. A course is often related to more STRiVE competencies than those listed.

The competencies below are established in the CMTO continuing education guidelines. This course addresses the competencies in many ways, including those described below.

Function in a client-centered manner.

This course provides the manual therapist with an understanding of the effects that cryotherapy can have on the body and prepares them to make safe and effective treatment decisions. The course focuses on indications, precautions, and contraindications for applications of cold hydrotherapy, allowing the therapist to tailor their treatment approach to their patients’ needs and preferences.

Work within areas of personal knowledge and skills.

This course explains the effects on the body as a result of cryotherapy treatments. The manual therapist will gain an understanding of how applications of cold, both locally and whole-body, can elicit responses in the body that can be harnessed for treatment. The focus on contraindications and modifications allows the therapist to ensure they make safe treatment decisions and know when to stop treatment or refer the patient. The therapist will be better equipped to make treatment decisions about cryotherapy, as well as to educate their patients, because of the thorough understanding that this course provides.

Practice in a self-reflective manner.

This course provides the RMT with a thorough understanding of how cold affects the human body, and how these effects can be utilized in treatment safely to benefit patients. This will improve the RMT’s ability to make clinical decisions and educate their patients about cryotherapy. The RMT that takes this course has reflected upon their practice and their decisions, and recognizes where knowledge should be enhanced. Through taking this course, the RMT draws on external information to achieve continuous learning and quality improvement.

Practice in a manner consistent with current developments in the profession.

This course was developed based on research and practice-based evidence that has been collected and documented for many years. It provides the manual therapist with a foundational understanding of the effects of cryotherapy on the body and explains the indications, precautions, and contraindications for cold hydrotherapy. The knowledge attained through this course can assist the manual therapist in determining if cryotherapy can be an effective and appropriate addition to their current treatment plan. By including cryotherapy in their practice, manual therapists can maximize their patients’ care by ensuring that the chosen modalities are appropriate for each patient and will be beneficial to their current condition.
