Stroke Rehabilitation Maximizing Outcomes: Interventions, 5/23/2024

About the Course:
It is easy in the day-to-day grind of clinical care to not only begin to forget some of the basic knowledge of stroke and its underlying physiology, but also to stay abreast of the latest developments in therapy assessment and care. It is often difficult to know how to efficiently tap into this information and feel as if you have a full grasp of the state of best practice in stroke rehabilitation. Participants will, by the end of this course, feel confident in their understanding of any gaps in their knowledge, comprehend the current state of evidence-based best practice in stroke rehabilitation, and have new tools for approaching evaluation of their patients with stroke.

Course Objectives:
  1. Identify overarching treatment concepts following current best practice guidelines and evidence-based intervention.
  2. Recognize current best-evidence intervention for the hemiplegic shoulder, spasticity, and neglect.
  3. Identify current trends in technology in stroke rehabilitation and their useful application.
