The Home Exercise Program (HEP) is perhaps one of the greatest tools employed by the rehabilitation professional.  It is used in every setting and historically is provided in one of the first visits.   However, based on the evidence, compliance is far from optimal and may be largely our fault.  This learning session looks to explore the evidence, examine the reasons impacting ideal compliance, and provide a framework to optimizing patient HEP success!

Benefits to Attending:

  • Learn the “magic number” for optimum HEP compliance
  • Examine the ten reasons patients are not compliant
