August 3Aug 3, 4: Developing Comprehensive Exercise Programs for Patients with Primary or Secondary Cardiovascular DysfunctionTime: 8:00 AM - 4:30 PMLocation: Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital Assembly 1&2
Every patient is a cardiovascular patient! And every patient with some kind of cardiovascular compromise deserves a high level of clinical competency from his or her rehabilitation professional, regardless of the therapy discipline (PT, OT, SLP). This course is based on the premise that the cardiovascular system should be considered as well as common co-morbidities found in individuals with cardiovascular dysfunction. In addition, evidence-based practice demands that treatment interventions be based on thorough patient assessment. This course will link the identified assessment findings to a sound clinical decision-making process to choose the best practice treatment interventions in order to reach the best functional outcomes. This course is applicable to all three rehabilitation disciplines: physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology.
