This one day intermediate level course combines online home study training with face-to-face interactive instruction including a hands on lab session. The course has been carefully designed to maximize the learning experience by combining, professionally filmed, self-paced online/DVD home study material with a focused hands-on training session in the classroom.
There has been a paradigm shift in the rehabilitation of spinal cord injured patients. Although therapists must teach compensatory strategies for achieving mobility while muscle groups are still weakened or paralyzed; there are now activity-based recovery strategies that help sensory-motor function regain the capacity to generate real function. Coupled with home study instruction, this course combines evaluative and rehabilitative teaching with hands-on practice on how to best combine the compensatory and recovery models in spinal cord injury rehabilitation. The instructor will present case studies; and evidence-based therapy and medical approaches that offer the spinal cord injured patient an opportunity for recovery. This course will help participants with their critical thinking processes based on patient parameters of need. Based on patient parameters, the participant will learn how to prioritize and synthesize conventional versus recovery model strategies to maximize patient progress efficiently.The participants will receive two comprehensive handouts for both the online and live courses in addition to a DVD resource.
I have a wealth of experience to draw from in helping therapists provide accurate evaluations and treatment while avoiding the pitfalls that come from managing a large caseload of spinal cord injury patients and from navigating insurance company challenges.More Instructor Info
