Neurorehabilitation Across the Continuum of Care

Course Description:

This course is designed to bridge the gap between science and practice. Applying clinical relevance to nervous system activity and dysfunction will provide therapists with a new perspective for improving outcomes in their patients with neurologic deficits. Participants will learn an evidence based approach to selecting the most appropriate interventions based on functional prognosis and learn when and how to facilitate compensation.

Participants will be able to perform a comprehensive neurological examination, correlating findings to symptoms, neuropathology and prognosis as well as skillful documentation. Evidence based treatment for Stroke, Parkinson's Disease, Spinal Cord Injury, Multiple Sclerosis, Huntington's disease and Dementia will be highlighted. Specific treatment strategies to drive neuroplastic change and enhance functional outcomes will be highlighted.

Upon course completion the participant will be able to:

Use the latest knowledge of the neurophysiology and neuroplasticity to determine prognosis and intervention for:
a. Stroke
b. Parkinsons disease
c. Spinal cord injury
d. Multiple Sclerosis
e. Huntingtons disease
f. Dementia
Determine appropriate selection of compensation vs. recovery strategies to maximize neuroplasticity and long-term functional outcome.
Perform a comprehensive neurological examination, correlating findings with neurological diagnosis and prognosis
Skillfully document findings to facilitate coordinated care across practice settings in order to communicate optimal patient care and maximize reimbursement.
