PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Evidence-Based Answers to Stroke Rehab

More people are coming through our doors for treatment post-stroke. However, we find ourselves torn between promoting "recovery" and the reality of shorter rehab stays, forcing us to focus on function. Many feel pressured to resort to "quick fixes" or shortcuts that may help short-term, but lack proper evidence for long-term recovery – and yet, stroke rehab is not a "quick fix." We are increasingly asked to provide evidence that our interventions are working (can someone say G Codes?). Therefore, the need for rehabilitation professionals to act decisively, responsibly, and effectively with this growing population cannot be overstated.

Avoid the "guessing game" with stroke rehab in this impactful 1-day course. Designed by Dr. Karen McCain, DPT, a neurologic clinical specialist with over 20 years of clinical and research experience, this course has a strong clinical focus and is intended to immediately impact your care with stroke patients. This course discusses common stroke impairments (e.g., apraxia, neglect, sensory) and the research-supported interventions to treat them. Evidence-based treatments of the hemiparetic/hemiplegic upper extremity after stroke will also be covered. Finally, through video case studies explore common gait mechanics after stroke and the various tests and treatments to produce optimal outcomes. By the end of this course, you will have the tools and resources needed to effectively improve outcomes for your patients with stroke.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Identify the key concepts of motor control and learning as they apply to persons with stroke
  • Examine the primary assessment tools used in stroke rehabilitation
  • Identify the associated impairments of stroke and the impact on functional outcomes
  • Summarize the components of upper extremity rehabilitation after stroke, including the determining prognosis, evaluation, and treatment
  • Differentiate the basic features of gait after stroke and the most effective treatments of gait dysfunction
