    PVA Education Foundation Funded Webinar Presented by Jennifer Kahn, PT, DPT, NCS
    This webinar is designed to inform you of the process of recommending outcome measures for the SCI population, help you select outcome measures for individuals with SCI, and identify gaps in areas of outcome measurement in SCI rehabilitation.
    PVA Education Foundation Funded Webinar Presented by Dr. Matthew Sorrenson
    This webinar discusses how principles of measurement influence care provided to individuals with spinal cord injuries and reviews concepts of reliability and validity as they inform clinical practice outcomes.
    PVA Education Foundation Funded Webinar Presented by Dr. Susan Magasi and Dr. Mark Harniss
    This webinar describes the steps taken to evaluate the accessibility of outcomes measurements as well as methods to make measures more accessible.
    RRF Funded Webinar Presented by Dr. Jennifer Moore and Dr. Allen Kozlowski
    This webinar is designed to help clinicians select and interpret outcome measures with older adults. The hour long presentation demonstrates the selection of instruments from a database and interpretation of scores by considering information on measurement properties of validity, reliability, and clinical utility.
    Demystifying Rasch Analyses for Clinical Application RRF Funded Webinar Presented by Dr. Jennifer Moore and Dr. Chih-Hung Chang Rasch analysis is increasingly utilized in research studies to determine psychometric properties of assessment instruments.  Terminology that is common in Rasch analysis, such as logits, infit, outfit, mean square and others are new to many clinicians, which is a barrier to reading, critiquing, and applying an article.   The purpose of this webinar is to provide a basic overview of Rasch analysis and its associated terminology.  Three recommended readings will provide an example of how to interpret Rasch analysis results, figures and tables in published research articles.
    Using Client-Centered Practice & Patient-Reported Outcomes RRF Funded Webinar Presented by Dr. Joy Hammel Patient Reported Outcome Measurements (PROMs) provide clinicians with an efficient method of assessing a patient’s perspective of their own progress.  PROMs are the focus of many research studies and are used in some clinical practice settings.  Because PROMs are relatively new to rehabilitation, there are many questions about appropriate utilization of these measures.  Are PROMs reliable in my patient/client population?  Will these instruments provide a valid measurement of my patient’s/client’s progress?  How do PROMs compare to performance-based measures?   Should a PROM be used in conjunction with a performance-based measure?
