HealthLinkRx Announces Classes in Spanish for Occupational and Physical Therapists

New Classes Help Therapists Serve Spanish-Speaking Patients

(PRWEB) March 30, 2010 -- The HealthLinkRx Institute has announced news dates for its occupational and physical therapy continuing education courses. New sessions of the Institute’s “Therapy in Spanish” class will be offered in Austin, TX on April 5-6 and Houston, TX on April 19-20.

The two-day course helps certified physical therapists and occupational therapists integrate Spanish medical terms, sentences and phrases into their patient care. Students will learn approximately 500 Spanish words and phrases used in therapeutic evaluation and intervention. Therapists will have the opportunity to practice their use of medical Spanish through exercises, mini-dialogues and case studies.

The ability to communicate in Spanish is becoming an increasingly important skill for all medical professionals. The US census estimates that Texas is home to 7.8 million Hispanics, making up roughly 35% of the state’s population. As a result, therapists with Spanish language skills will be increasingly sought by medical employers.

A certificate of completion for 1.2 CEU’s (12 contact hours) will be awarded for attendance of entire workshop. Certified physical therapists and occupational therapists require 30 hours of continuing education credits per year to maintain their certification within the state of Texas.

The HealthLinkRx Institute has been approved by the Texas Occupational Therapy Association (TOTA) and the Texas Physical Therapy Association (TPTA) as a provider of continuing education training.

The Austin class will be held at the Town Lake Branch YMCA. The Houston course will be held at 2800 Post Oak Blvd. Classes will run from 7:30 AM to 3:15 PM each day.

Registration for both course days costs $199. Registration for one day costs $149. Therapists can register at the Institute’s web site at or by calling (214) 987-1600.

Class space is limited and students are encouraged to register early.
