The 1000 reps a day workshop was developed by the StrokeEd collaboration in 2014 and has been taught internationally since, including at the World Congress of Physical Therapy.
This workshop explores the evidence for a dose-response relationship between amounts of practice and outcomes in rehabilitation, strategies to increase patient motivation and strategies to maximise opportunities for patients to practice. To facilitate the presentation of strategies that can be used in all rehabilitation settings service delivery has been divided into three categories.
The first is one to one practice, in this mode the therapist is working with the patient, strategies to increase intensity of practice include examining the coaching skills of the therapist, their ability to communicate effectively and to set up the environment effectively.
The second mode of service delivery is semi-supervised practice, in this mode the patient is in a therapy environment but is not under direct supervision of a therapist. This mode can include groups and classes and patients working with family in a therapy area. The barriers to this mode of service delivery are patient safety and quality of practice. Strategies to overcoming these barriers are discussed in detail and case study examples are used to aid in the application of these strategies.
The third mode of service delivery is independent practice, in this mode the patient is not under any therapist supervision while they practice. This mode includes home exercise programmes for outpatient and community settings and evening and weekend practice for inpatient settings.
The evidence for increasing adherence to exercise in a variety of patient populations is explored and strategies are drawn from this evidence. Following the delivery of lecture content, there is a practical session on each of these topic areas. Participants will complete these practical sessions in small groups allowing the sharing of knowledge and ideas amongst therapists from diverse backgrounds.
By the end of the workshop, learners should be able to:
- Outline the evidence for a dose-response relationship between amount of practice and outcomes
- Describe strategies to increase patient motivation and empowerment
- Describe effective instructions and feedback during practice
- Describe strategies to set up the environment for safe and effective semi-supervised practice
- Describe strategies to increase attendance and participation in classes
- Outline the evidence for and describe strategies to increase carer involvement in practice
- Outline the evidence for increasing adherence to independent exercise programmes
- Discuss and implement strategies to increase intensity of practice in your workplace
