This is a one-day, beginning to intermediate level, occupation centered, evidence-based course on the shoulder complex.  It is designed for the occupational therapy professional who is looking to improve their shoulder complex evaluation and treatment skills that will help clients improve performance of daily living occupations.  The course begins with a cursory review of anatomy and biomechanics followed by information of common shoulder complex diagnoses. Participants will be instructed on how to systematically perform a thorough evaluation of the shoulder complex.   Additionally, different therapeutic interventions will be discussed and demonstrated.   The laboratory segment will provide the opportunity to practice/discuss the occupational therapist evaluation process.  Topics in physical agent modalities, postural management, therapeutic exercises/activities, ergonomics, and assistive equipment will be discussed.  Attendees completing this course will leave with a solid understanding of the enormous role the shoulder complex plays in the performance of occupation.
