What is “White Label LMS”?

The term “white label” began back during the disco era when vinyl records were pre-released to the press and radio stations. Before the album artwork was designed and printed, promotional copies of records were sent out in white sleeves to stir up excitement about upcoming record releases.

Although records are now antiquated, the term “white label” has lingered over the years and taken on new meanings. Today, “white label” most often refers to a product or service that is created by one company and distributed under another company’s brand name. In the case of “white label LMS”, a learning management system is custom-designed with unique content (company logos, font, etc.) to integrate with an organization’s branding.

White label can also refer to the actual content stored within a learning management system. In CEU360.com’s learning management system, clients can produce tailored seminar-on-demand training and educational white label videos for their employees in addition to having access to a white label branded university experience.

(Plano, Texas)CEU360’s learning management system (LMS) is unlike any other.

Thus, CEU360.com was developed to streamline continuing education, training programs, and compliance training for healthcare teams.

Adding to their growing list of clients, CEU360.com has recently announced a contract signing with Windsor Rehab, LTD. The new alliance ensures Windsor Rehab’s employees have access to CEU360.com’s state-of-the-art learning management system and online continuing education courses.

Get Cheap CEUs for Your Healthcare Employees without Sacrificing Quality of Content

Get the best of both worlds: sacrifice price, not quality! Obtain cheap CEUs for your team with exceptional and well-researched content.

Cheap CEUs for Healthcare EmployeesA research study confirms poor continuing education offerings affect patient care: patients do not receive appropriate care or receive unnecessary and harmful care when healthcare professionals utilize ineffective CEU tools. Therefore, it’s critically important that your healthcare employees receive high-quality CEUs. The problem, however, is that most of those “elite” continuing education courses come with a hefty price!

CEU Conferences and Online Course Options:

In the past, health professionals would have to travel to weekend or weeklong conferences to obtain their CEUs. This would result in excessive fees. But, not anymore – CEUs are now readily available online. Still, online courses come with their challenges. In some instances, while health professionals can get cheap CEUs online, they also get cheap CEU content. (Either the actual CE courses are lacking high-quality, well-researched content or they are delivered via a poor content delivery system with bad video and image quality, poorly developed PDFs, etc.)

Reasonably priced, cheap CEUs don’t have to be “cheap” CEUs!

The good news is high-quality continuing education doesn’t have to come with a high price. In fact, many healthcare companies now offer their employees the opportunity to acquire their CEUs at work, on the road or even at home. And, many business owners are pleasantly surprised at the affordability and flexibility a learning management system (LMS) offers.

CEU360’s LMS includes a vast selection of over 500 hours of elite continuing education:

  • occupational therapy continuing education courses
  • physical therapy continuing education courses

By utilizing our learning management system at your facility, your employees can receive the benefits of low-cost cheap CEUs without sacrificing content.

Opinion Poll: Occupational Therapy Activity Ideas – Should OTs Use Art as Therapy?

Give us your feedback: Should OTs treating adult populations utilize art as therapy? And if so, what artistic occupational therapy activity ideas do you recommend for the adult population?

Occupational Therapy Activity Ideas – Should OTs Use Art as Therapy?The use of crafts and other forms of art as therapy was commonplace for OTs up until the 1980’s. Since this time, therapeutic arts and crafts have been limited to pediatric patient populations. But, many OTs assert arts and crafts should be utilized for adult therapy, too. This doesn’t mean adults should be reduced to coloring in picture books, but there is evidence to show painting and other “adult” artistic activities can prove beneficial for both muscle and brain stimulation. But first…

The History of Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy began around 100 BC when Asclepiades, a Greek Doctor, used exercise and massage to attend to mentally ill patients. However, it wasn’t until the 18th century when Phillipe Pinel and Johan Christian Reil actually developed the profession of “occupational therapy”. Since this time, treatment protocols have evolved:

1910s – First practitioners in OT profession, called “reconstructive aides”, worked during World War I to rehabilitate disabled soldiers and civilian patients. Arts and crafts were a big part of treatment modalities at this time.

1942-1960 – Often referred to as the “rehabilitation movement,” and occupational therapists were called to organize and run rehabilitation programs for injured veterans and advances were extended to include those with spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury and cerebral palsy.

1960s -1970s – The entire medical profession moved towards specialization, and occupational therapy followed suit. Services for individuals with developmental disabilities and pediatric disorders expanded greatly during this time. Utilizing arts and crafts therapeutically for the pediatric population was a natural development.

1980s-1990s – Occupational therapy became more involved in education, prevention, screening programs and health maintenance efforts. The use of art as therapy declined dramatically and therapists were only using crafts 20% of the time.

2000s – In May 2002, the American Occupational Therapy Association adopted a revised framework of practice for the profession. The new practice framework, Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain and Process, returned to the roots of participation in “occupation” as the focus of the profession.

*Accessed via Washington State University.

Should OTs Use Art as Therapy?

Any activity like drawing, painting or working with clay helps stimulate muscle movement in the hands, arms, and shoulders. It also benefits patients with cognitive impairments by stimulating the creative parts of the brain. Over time, however, OTs have become disillusioned with the use of arts and crafts in their therapeutic practices. Today, approximately half of OTs use arts and crafts in their practice – most often with pediatric populations.

Attention OTs and OTAs! Give us Your Feedback…

Do you feel that OTs should include crafts and other art as therapy in adult patient treatment? Or, do you think this is an antiquated therapy method? Perhaps you feel this treatment method should be limited to pediatrics?
