    Learning Objectives
    After completing this course, you will be able to do the following:
    • Identify the best-available evidence in regards to treatment or physical agent parameters for optimal recovery.
    • Summarize certain foundational concepts that are related to evidence-based practice.
    • Incorporate the best-available evidence with clinical decision-making.
    • Interpret the best-available evidence in relation to prevention, recognition, evaluation, and/or treatment of certain athletic injuries/illnesses.
    IJATT Parts I and II: Evidence-Based Practice Online CE Course supports the initiative in the athletic training profession to integrate the best new research and evidence into clinical decision making with the goal of improving patient outcomes. Certified athletic trainers completing this course may earn continuing education units to apply toward the newly required evidence-based practice category to maintain their certification.

    This continuing education course package consists of both part I and part II of the Evidence-Based Practice CE Course. Each part contains a collection of unique, evidence-based articles originally published in the International Journal of Athletic Therapy & Training (IJATT).

    The first part features five articles, written by notable athletic trainers such as David O. Draper and Kenneth L. Knight, and covers various topics includingacute wound management, ACL-reconstruction autografts, and diagnosis of infectious meningitis. The articles are followed by an exam containing 55 questions.

    The second part includes six more articles that address various treatment modalities and cover a range of topics including low-level laser therapy, therapeutic ultrasound, and cryotherapy for treatment of delayed-onset muscle soreness. These articles are followed by a second exam containing 54 questions.

    Evidence-based practice is becoming the standard for all allied health professionals. The articles in this course introduce athletic trainers to the concept of seeking out and evaluating relevant research so they may apply it to their daily practice to aid their athletes.

    NOTE: When purchasing this course package, you will gain access to both parts of the course. Upon passing each exam, you may print out and submit certificates for continuing education credits.

    About the Author

    The articles in this online course package were compiled by the editors in chief of the International Journal of Athletic Therapy & Training.

    Jennifer M. Medina McKeon, PhD, ATC, CSCS, is an assistant professor in the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance at Ithaca College in New York. Her academic and research interests include functional anatomy and pathoanatomy, biomechanics, sport injury epidemiology and time-to-event analysis, evidence-based practice, and clinical analysis of risk factors associated with lower-extremity injury. She has received funding from the National Institutes of Health and has presented her research at the local, national, and international levels.

    Patrick O. McKeon, PhD, ATC, CSCS, is a BOC-certified athletic trainer who joined the Ithaca College athletic training faculty in 2013. McKeon’s research focuses on functional alterations associated with lower-extremity joint injury, specifically ankle instability. He incorporates patient-, clinician-, and laboratory-oriented outcomes to evaluate these alterations due to injury and rehabilitation. McKeon seeks to develop a greater understanding of the restoration of sensorimotor function associated with musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
