6 RT Practicum Activities One month training On-site participation Planning and delivery of RT services in rural, agricultural, vocation, independent living and community settings Sites and activities provided in collaboration with Rehabilitation Technology and Driver Rehabilitation staff of the Kentucky Office of Vocational Rehabilitation Kentucky AgrAbility University of Kentucky Human Development Institute

7 RT Practicum Activities 1. Week 1: Rehabilitation technology in vocational/worksite settings 2. Week 2: Driver evaluation and training; vehicle modification services 3. Week 3: Rehabilitation technology in rural/agricultural settings 4. Week 4: Rehabilitation technology and environmental modifications in the home

8 Grant Obtained from 10/01/2005-9/30/2010 Estimated funding: Project year 1: 75,280 Project year Project year 3 84,766 Project year 4 83,961 Project year 5 86,385 Total requested : 412,785

9 DATA Cohort analytic study Comparing the national average scores from the Equipment & Assistive Technology Portion of the ABPMR Part I(written) to that of UK PM&R(Institution 1) and University of Louisville PM&R(Institution 2) averages Scores compared from first time test takers Training modules were fully functional in 2007

10 Equipment & Assistive Technology Section 10% of the total written exam Topics tested: 1. Prosthetics 2. Orthotics 3. Other Rehabilitation Technology Shoes Functional Electrical Stimulation Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation Augmentative Communication Ventilation Wheelchair / Seating Other Devices

11 Average Scores UK U of L National

12 Comparison of Average Scores

13 ABPMR Part 1Pass Rate

14 Regression Analysis

15 Modules Completed vs. Average Scores

16 Conclusion Graphing tendencies show trend towards improvement on the ABPMR Part I Equipment and Assistive Technology portion with the addition of training modules No statistical analysis due to small size Possible factor influencing results Variations in content of exam Resident knowledge Environmental factors/outside stressors
