    ~ Modules Designed to Support Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech Therapists with Their Continuing Education ~

    IPSWICH, Mass. — April 26, 2012 — EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) has added continuing education (CE) modules to Rehabilitation Reference Center™ (RRC), an evidence-based clinical reference tool for use by rehabilitation clinicians at the point-of-care. Nineteen continuing education modules are currently included in Rehabilitation Reference Center and there are plans to increase that number over time.

    The CE modules are designed to assist physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists satisfy their CE credits online. Each CE module consists of course material, an interactive review and a competency test with a certificate of successful completion. The modules can be accessed by clicking on the “New Continuing Education Modules” link in the Spotlight section of RRC.
    CINAHL Information Systems, a division of EBSCO Publishing, has obtained accreditation for the physical therapy courses from the Pennsylvania State Board of Physical Therapy and the Florida State Board of Physical Therapy. In addition, twenty-four states recognize accreditation in other states, so these courses can also be received by the licensure board for continuing education purposes in these states: Alaska, Arizona, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
    EBSCO plans to seek accreditation in other states where continuing education for physical therapists is required.
    CINAHL Information Systems is an accredited continuing education provider, from IACET (International Association for Continuing Education and Training). The accrediting bodies for occupational therapy and speech therapy, AOTA (American Occupational Therapy Association) and ASHA (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association) respectively, accept continuing education from IACET providers. Thus occupational therapists and speech therapists across the United States, can take these CEs for supporting their licensure.
