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 hydrotherapy can have on the body. The manual therapist will be able to determine whether hydrotherapy would be a beneficial addition to their patient’s treatment plan and if the effects of hydrotherapy would help to maximize their patient’s progress within the available treatment time.

Work within areas of personal knowledge and skills. This course explains the effects on the body as a result of hydrotherapy treatments. The manual therapist will gain an understanding of how temperature applications can elicit a response from multiple body systems including the integumentary system, the cardiovascular system, and the central nervous system. This course will provide the manual therapist with the knowledge of when hydrotherapy applications are indicated during the stages of healing and when certain types of temperature treatments can be contraindicated. 

Maintain a safe work environment. This course provides the manual therapist with the ability to recognize and address possible adverse reactions to hydrotherapy treatments. This understanding will allow the manual therapist to focus on maintaining the physical safety of patients throughout their treatment.

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 foundation of understanding of the effects of hydrotherapy on the body. The knowledge attained through this course can assist the manual therapist in determining if hydrotherapy can be an effective and appropriate addition to their current treatment plan. By including hydrotherapy in their practice, manual therapists can maximize their patient’s care by ensuring that the chosen modalities are appropriate for the patient and will be beneficial to their current condition.
