Course Description

Standing, when chosen as a therapeutic intervention, should be based on both evidence-based medicine (EBM) and clinical reasoning to help support and justify standing programs. This course includes a review and discussion of available evidence that supports rationale and benefits of standing for those with disabilities and explores reasons both for and against using evidence-based medicine to guide development of standing program parameters.
