  1.  Effective May 17, 2023 MAPS no longer requires facemasks to be worn during course hours to prevent the spread of COVID-19, UNLESS the attendee has had a close COVID exposure or has experienced any cold/flu-like symptoms within 5 days of the course date. We continue to recommend that participants bring an N-95 or KN-95 mask with them to the course, as a precaution. Higher risk individuals should consider wearing KN-95 or N-95 masks during course hours, regardless of our policy. MAPS will notify participants of any additional COVID requirements or updates to this policy via email and the same will also be posted inside their digital classroom on MAPS Online Learning. Email joanne@ozpt.com with any questions regarding our COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols.

  2. If a course participant has had a close COVID exposure or cold/flu like symptoms within 5 days of the course date, a negative covid test will be required to attend the course. Participants in this case will be required to: 1) provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test (home tests are acceptable) administered no more than 48 hours prior to the course date, and 3) agree to wear an N-95 or KN-95 mask for the duration of the course.

  3. A supplemental COVID-19 testimonial/waiver must be signed by all attendees. All course participants (including instructors) will be required to sign an additional liability waiver/testimonial regarding COVID19, which also acknowledges receipt of our COVID-19 Health & Safety policies. Despite all of our best efforts to ensure the health and safety of all attendees, MAPS and the HOST cannot be held liable should a course participant become ill. Those who are unable to sign the COVID-19 waiver/testimonial, and subsequently denied admission to the course, will be provided with an opportunity to transfer into another course free of charge.
  4. Attendee attestations and COVID screening. All attendees must attest that within 5 days of the course date they have had no COVID-19 or flu like symptoms  fever, cough, cold, headache, etc.) nor any known close contact exposure to any individual diagnosed with COVID-19. Any participants who cannot attest as such must identify themselves to the Course Instructor and will be subject to the additional COVID restrictions described above in 2).

  5. Hand washing/sanitizing Requirements. HOST facilities are required to provide hand sanitizer or hand washing stations available throughout the clinic for frequent use by course participants and/or the instructor as follows:
    • Participants are requested to wash or sanitize their hands upon entrance to the course each day
    • We recommend hand washing or re-application of hand sanitizer prior to any patient demonstrations or when lab partners switch positions (i.e., from acting patient to treating therapist).

  6. The provision of snacks by the HOST is optional, but beverages are required. Clinics will no longer be required to provide snacks, but participants are welcome to bring their own. At a minimum the HOST will provide drinking water, and is strongly encouraged to also provide coffee and tea as well. We recommend that any snacks be consumed only during course breaks.

  7. Disinfecting the clinic – a shared responsibility. HOST facilities are asked to provide a spray disinfectant or disinfectant wipes (i.e. Clorox wipes) available for use by participants and/or the course instructor during the course. The participants will be asked to wipe down treatment tables prior to any laboratory and/or patient demonstrations.
    • We recommend wiping down tables with disinfectant when lab partners switch from acting as the patient to therapist. When available, table paper should be changed at this time as well.
    • The HOST will be required to spray the clinic daily with either Lysol or other similar aerosol disinfectant, unless an inside air disinfectant alternative (i.e., a UV disinfectant light or HEPA air filtration system) is available.

MAPS Coronavirus Update – December 4, 2020

 

COVID-19 Impact on MAPS Courses
An Important Message from Program Director Chris Showalter

Given the acceleration in COVID-19 infections across the country, Maitland-Australian Physiotherapy Seminars has decided not to hold any live, in-person courses until March 2021. The growing ubiquity of this virus made it clear that despite our rigorous health and safety protocols implemented this year, gathering dozens of people for live, in-person, hands-on courses this winter would not be a safe activity.

MAPS simply will not risk the health of our students, faculty, host facilities, or their families.

A vaccine is near, and healthcare workers will be one of the first groups who receive it, but for the next three months the only courses we will be holding are our increasingly popular REMOTE LIVE courses.

  • All Live In-Person Courses from Dec 2020 – Feb 2021 have been rescheduled. We anticipate the resumption of live, in-person courses starting in March 2021.
  • Covid-Safe Remote Live Courses are scheduled throughout 2021 and beyond – a great alternative to Live, In-Person learning. Learn the MAPS philosophy and all the same techniques with a live instructor right from the comfort of your own home. Approval CE hours for PTs/PTAs in 40+ states. Registration open for Spring 2021 MT-1: Remote Live and MT-2 Remote Live.  For our most updated course schedule: https://ozpt.com/course-descriptions/course-schedule/
  • Opportunities for New MAPS Host Facilities in Select Markets. With Live courses returning in the spring, we are looking to add new Host sites in select markets. We invite all interested facilities to fill out an application! Click on this link to MAPS New Host Application: https://ozpt.com/host-a-course/maps-host-application/

Stay Safe & Remember to Wear a Mask!

We wish everyone a safe and healthy winter, wear a mask whenever possible, and we look forward to seeing you in-person in the spring!


MAPS Coronovirus Update – September 19, 2020

MAPS COVID-19 HEALTH & SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

  • Participants limited to those in the state in which the course is held and surrounding states in which travel restrictions are not imposed within the state of the host state at the time of the course

  • Capacity of course limited to 75% or less (no more than 23 course participants allowed)

  • Participants screened in advance of the course for COVID-19

  • Additional health and safety protocols being implemented at the course site including: disinfection of lab area before, during and after the course, additional hand sanitizing facilities available throughout the laboratory, and limitations on lab partners (no switching partners once chosen)

  • Face mask requirement throughout the course for all participants

  • Social distancing observed during course lecture.
 



MAPS Coronavirus Update – May 29, 2020

To ensure the health and safety of all participants and MAPS faculty during COVID-19, please note the following additional precautions that are being implemented at all our live courses until further notice:

1) Required use of Face masks. All course attendees (including the instructor) will be required to wear a face mask to (covering both nose and mouth) for the duration of the course.  Those arriving without a face mask will be required to purchase one through MAPS for a nominal fee in order to attend.

2) Attendee health screening.  All attendees will be screened daily prior to commencement of the course and any course participant with any COVID-19 or flu like symptoms (fever, cough, cold, headache, etc.) or recent exposure to COVID-19 will be refused admission.  Those refused admission will be able to reschedule their registration to another MAPS course at a later date.

3) Hand washing/sanitizing requirements.  All course sites will have hand sanitizer and/or washing stations available throughout the clinic for frequent use by course participants and the instructor. In addition, MAPS will require the following protocols to be followed at all live courses:  

  • ​Participants must sanitize their hands prior to signing-in each day​
  • Upon commencement of the laboratory portion of the course, participants will be required to thoroughly wash their hands.  
  • Hand washing or reapplication of hand sanitizer will be required by all in advance of any patient demonstrations or when changing lab partners.​

4) Snacks/coffee/beverages will no longer be provided- only water will be available. Drinking water in individual bottles will be available free of charge.  No other refreshments will be served.  Participants are welcome to bring their own coffee/beverages/snacks if so desired. 

5) Rigorous clinic disinfection protocol.  All hard surfaces at the course site (light switches, counter tops, etc., door knobs, podium, etc.) will be disinfected prior to commencement of the course.  Spray disinfectants or disinfectant wipes (i.e. Clorox wipes) will also be available to participants and/or the course instructor for use during the course.

  • The clinic will be sanitized daily with either Lysol or other similar aerosol disinfectant, unless an inside air disinfectant alternative (i.e., a UV disinfectant light) is available.  

6) Supplemental COVID-19 liability waiver.  All participants will be required to sign an additional liability waiver, recognizing that despite the best efforts of MAPS and the HOST facility to ensure the health and safety of all attendees, there is an increased risk of infection any time an individual steps out of quarantine. 

Until such time as the COVID-19 health emergency has passed, these additional precautions are designed to significantly reduce the risk of viral transmission. We will continually monitor new information and recommendations provided by the CDC, and other government agencies, and make any adjustments in the above protocols if necessary.     

For those at higher risk, or those who do not feel comfortable attending live courses at this time, MAPS is introducing several exciting remote learning options you may want to explore.  Please see our Press Release dated May 28, 2020 for additional information.

Stay safe and healthy and we hope to see you soon!
