Date: May 18-19, 2019
Speaker: Michelle Mioduszewski MD, OSR/L
Contact Hours: Approximately 16 Hours
Open To: PT, PTA, OT, COTA, SLP
Some statistics indicate that a stroke occurs every 40 seconds in the US and there are 1.7 million brain injuries that occur each year. This 2-day course will discuss the concepts of the physical care and evidence based principals to create results in clinical interventions for stroke, hemiplegia, brain injury, spasticity and general motor control issues. Occupational and physical therapists and assistants will find this course to be heavily lab based to provide attendees with skills for immediately use for effective strategies in the clinic. The lab portions will cover movement and function analysis, midline shift dysfunction (pusher), stretching and facilitation. The core, scapula, upper extremity and lower extremity will be addressed. Functional applications of improvement and carryover of care will be addressed as well as documentation to advocate for a client.
Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
1. Describe general concepts of neuro-handling and rehabilitation.
2. Demonstrate 1 facilitation technique for each of the following areas: pelvis, spine, scapula, upper extremity and lower extremity.
3. Demonstrate stretching techniques and spasticity management for each of the following areas: core, upper extremity and lower extremity.
4. Describe pre-gait technique and interventions for midline shift dysfunction (pusher).
5. Demonstrate at least 2 techniques for the integration of functional activities in treatment and care plans.
6. Discriminate 3 components of documentation to effectively advocate for your patient.
