Format(s):   Live Seminars
Discipline(s):   Physical Therapy / Occupational Therapy / Speech-Language
Contact Hours:   14
Registration Fee:   $435


Objectives
By the end of the course, participants will be able to: • Incorporate current evidence into examination, evaluation and intervention of patients post-stroke • Discuss commonly used outcome measures in this population to enhance your evaluation and treatment process • Design and implement treatment interventions based on evidence and the constraints of our current healthcare system • Identify the potential use of emerging adjunctive techniques and technologies in future practice

Description
In this course, you will learn/review the current research and thinking of neuroplasticity and motor learning as they relate to optimizing recovery in patients post-stroke. The ultimate end goal is that you will integrate current findings into your everyday practice of neurorehabilitation. A key focus will be integrating the evidence in these areas into current clinical practice in current healthcare environments across the continuum of care. We will examine a broad overview of treatment approaches and participants will apply this information to case studies as a group. Evidence-based examination and treatment approaches will be discussed in the context of experience-dependent neuroplasticity. The course will promote application through the use of case studies.
