Essential Concepts of Management and Leadership: Applications for Rehabilitation Services


Why take this online Rehab Leadership and Management Course ?

The managers and leaders of today require the development and mastery of multiple skills and experiences in order to engage their team fully and achieve desired results. Rehabilitation managers typically spend disproportionately less time in management and leadership development versus clinical training, diminishing one’s overall effectiveness. Additionally, working long hours attempting to wear “both clinician and manager hats” may lead to increased personal stress and burnout.

Details about this Online Continuing Education Course

For those working in management and leadership positions in rehabilitation services, there is intense pressure to improve quality, deliver exceptional results, and reduce expenses. Work relationships are expected to thrive where bouts of brief communications are the norm without the depth of one-to-one meetings. Fortunately, the fundamentals of management and leadership have not changed. Kouzes and Posner, pioneers in the study of leadership, recently concluded a reassessment of their original research conducted twenty years ago, with a new generation of workers. They demonstrated results remarkably similar to their original ten leadership concepts. (6) This home study module series combines evidence based management and leadership concepts with experiences in rehabilitation services. Developing and experienced managers/ leaders in multiple practice areas (acute care, inpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing, home health, outpatient) will benefit from this program. Module one topics include: management and recognition. Future topics will include leadership, productivity, and change.
