Assessing and Treating Progressive Neurological Diseases

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Over the last 20 years, more and more Americans have been diagnosed with various progressive neurological disorders. This is due to improved diagnostic testing and most recently, the human genome project. The human genome project has aided the medical community in determining who in our population is at greater risk for developing a progressive neurological disease. As more people are diagnosed with progressive neurological diseases, therapists are finding themselves at a loss when determining how to provide effective therapy services to this population.

In this one-day seminar, participants will discuss the etiology of three specific progressive neurological diseases (Parkinson's Disease, Huntington's Disease and Multiple Sclerosis), how the disease progresses and effective goals and therapeutic interventions at the various stages of each of the diseases. At the crux of this seminar is the fact that the purpose of therapeutic interventions is never to stop the progression but to promote functional independence throughout the progression of the disease.

Individuals attending this seminar will be exposed to the pathophysiology and signs and symptoms, in order to develop effective treatment interventions. Ultimately, it is imperative for clinicians to be able to create effective individualized clinical interventions, which will address the specific needs associated with the stage of the disease process, as well as the needs of the location where the individual resides.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

An overview of the pathophysiology associated with each of the three diseases
Detailed description of the signs, symptoms, and progression of each of the three diseases
Discussion of the relationship between the pathophysiology, signs, symptoms, and progression of each of the three diseases
A comprehensive review of the current therapeutic treatment approaches to the care of people with each of the three diseases, which is based on the progression of the disease
Review of the current research articles associated with each of the three diseases
