PROGRAM DETAILS

Stroke is the leading cause of disability in America. Therapists play a vital role in reducing or even eliminating disability resulting from stroke. However, therapists are increasingly pressured to produce better outcomes in a shorter period of time, often with less staff support. The results are generic treatment plans, traditional supine therapeutic exercise prescription, range of motion or seated group activities. All of these fail to address the impairments keeping the patient from having success in functional life activities. To reduce disability, therapists must be able to improve functional mobility in activities such as transferring, walking, dressing and bathing through better assessment and treatment planning. For maximal recovery in stroke patients, you must be able to accurately determine each patient's specific impairments that are limiting function. From this, you can develop precise, customized treatment plans which prioritize the impairments and reduce disability quickly and effectively.

In this one-day seminar, you will expand your intervention "toolbox" by learning to create effective treatments that directly reduce functional limitations for any level of stroke patient, from acute care to community re-entry. This will be accomplished without expensive equipment, time-consuming protocols or labor-intensive techniques. Normal movement requirements will be reviewed, which will better equip you to efficiently and accurately identify the impairments that are causing dysfunction. Treatment interventions will be developed based on motor control and learning principles aimed at integrating cognition, motor ability and the environment for maximal carryover to functional task performance. An extensive review of treatments to reduce commonly seen impairments will be accomplished through lab work, demonstration and video analysis and will be provided in written form for take-home use. Those with the largest "toolbox" of treatment interventions are best equipped to meet the needs of the patient and can do so independent of time restraints, staffing demands and equipment limitations. Expand your treatment toolbox in this fun, stimulating one-day course.


WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Learn to detect movement dysfunction in commonly impaired functional tasks following stroke

  • Understand the impact of various impairments on function

  • Utilize the identified impairments to develop strategic, specific treatment interventions for any level stroke -- from acute care through community re-entry

  • Develop a toolbox of effective treatments for commonly seen impairments through video analysis and lab work


  • Identify normal movement requirements for basic functional tasks, including sit-stand, bed mobility, gait, steps, dressing and a variety of reaching tasks

  • Utilize a framework for clinical problem solving from assessment through treatment

  • Identify probable impairments causing movement dysfunction and recognize how to test each hypothesized impairment

  • Recognize the impact of motor control and learning theories on treatment session development

  • Implement appropriate treatment interventions for identified impairments

  • Modify treatment interventions to maximize carryover of tasks and movement patterns into functional activities
