Motivations, Inc.

Format(s):   Live Seminars
Discipline(s):   Physical Therapy / Occupational Therapy
Contact Hours:   8
Registration Fee:   $225

Upon completion of this course the participant will be able to: 1. Identify and describe the functional anatomy of the brain. 2. Explain the relationship between lesion site and impairment level. 3. Discuss the relevancy of test measures based on lesion site and impairment level. 4. Choose optimal treatment interventions based on measurement outcomes and clinical research. 5. Define the purpose of the World Health Organization and the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health. 6. Integrate information and justify treatment interventions for neurologic rehabilitation practice

Target Audience
Physical Therapists, Physical Therapy Assistants, Occupational Therapists, and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants

Confirmation Notes
This 8 contact hour course is equivalent to 0.8 CEUs. Motivations, Inc. is an approved CEU provider by AOTA. This course is approved by SCAPTA and the physical therapy boards or APTA chapters in the states where the course is held. This is an Intermediate level course. This course assumes that participants have a general familiarity with topic (neruoanatomy). The focus is on increased understanding and application of information (neurological impairment and neurorehabilitation assessment and strategies).

Do you wonder where the time goes during the evaluation period and you did not assess an impairment critical to a patient’s problem? Would knowing lesion site and the affected anatomical structures clue you into performing key assessments? If so, your patients would have a better-developed and precise plan of care to address impairments. The purpose of this course is to review neuroanatomy as it relates to rehabilitation for occupational and physical therapists. Evaluation measures related to functional outcomes impacted by lesion sites will be discussed. Treatment interventions based on evidence-based practice will be offered as options for patient care. The World Health Organization (WHO) International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) will be used as a framework for delivery of care in neurorehabilitation.
