Participants will integrate the latest evidence-based treatment approaches and techniques into everyday practice within the context of experience-dependent neuroplasticity and the constraints of the healthcare system.
- CEU DETAILS
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.
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
Maureen Whitford PT, PhD, NCS works full time as a physical therapy researcher at the Cleveland VA Medical Center. She also practices physical therapy prn at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and University Hospitals Avon Rehab Hospital. She previously taught within multiple different Doctor of Physical Therapy programs nationally, Additionally, she has carried out research focused on recovery post-stroke. Maureen received her BS in Physical Therapy from The Ohio State University, her MHS from the University of Indianapolis Krannert School of Physical Therapy, her MS in Biokinesiology from the University of Southern California, and her PhD in Rehabilitation Science from the University of Minnesota. She has presented locally and nationally on recovery of patients post-stroke. Dr. Whitford has broad clinical experience treating patients post-stroke in a variety of settings for over 25 years. Her courses emphasize theoretical underpinnings of motor learning and neuroplasticity as they relate to current treatment interventions and integration into practice.
"Extremely knowledgeable on post-stroke rehab. Great source of information in the future." - -A King, PT
"Maureen is such a well-versed academic. Her first-hand knowledge of current data was paradigm shifting. One of the best courses I have attended in my 17 years of practice. Monday morning I will begin implementation of some of the new data I learned this weekend." - -T Lindsley, OTR
