Therapists play a critical role in treating more than 750,000 individuals in the United States who experience a stroke each year. The landscape of evidence regarding strokes is always evolving and ERI recognizes the importance of offering continuing education that provides therapists the latest evidence-based information and recommendations to integrate new techniques into practice. ERI’s live webinar, “Improving Outcomes in Patients Post Stroke: An Evidence-Based Approach Through the Continuum of Care” with Dr. Heather Hayes will address such issues and teach participants the most current findings in skill acquisition post-stroke, upper extremity management, locomotor and gait training, cardiovascular and strength training including high-intensity training (HIT) and information to improve balance and reduce falls. In addition, participants will learn how to evaluate research articles to foster continued learning and integration of new findings in the future.
Dr. Hayes is a Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist (CSRS), and the Chair of the Stroke Special Interest group in the Academy of Neurologic Physical Therapy (ANPT). She is a leader in her field and passionate about the care that stroke survivors receive and seeks to provide patients opportunities beyond traditional rehabilitation.
Congratulations to Dr. Hayes for being appointed to the “Moving Forward” Taskforce. We look forward to the reading about the recommendations and resources by the ANPT taskforce.
