Stroke accounts for a large amount of death and disability annually across the world. With advancing medicine, more individuals are surviving stroke than ever. As rehabilitation professionals, it is our responsibility to provide these individuals with the most evidence-based approach to examination and treatment to maximize functional recovery. The goal of this course is to provide a comprehensive approach to stroke management based on functional presentation. In addition, we will review medical, pharmacological, and anatomical characteristics in stroke management to develop a collaborative and thorough approach to treatment.
At the end of this course, PT/OT participants will be able to:
• Explain incidence, prevalence, and characteristics of individuals who suffer from stroke
• Apply understanding of neuroanatomy to functional exam and treatment planning
• Connect task and activity analysis to functional examination and treatment planning for stroke survivors
• Demonstrate appropriate evidence-based treatment utilizing the principles of neuroplasticity through case-based learning
• Complete comprehensive patient care plan in collaboration with other healthcare professionals
• Explain secondary risks for stroke survivors and professional role in intervention
At the end of this course, PTA/OTA participants will be able to:
• Describe incidence, prevalence, and characteristics of individuals who suffer from stroke
• Correlate gross neuroanatomy with clinical findings
• Understand and implement evidence-based interventions and collaborate with the
interdisciplinary team to improve patient outcomes
• Better understand the examination process, clinical reasoning, and task analysis in individuals
• Discuss secondary risks for stroke survivors and professional role in intervention
The information presented in this course is clinically relevant for Physical Therapist (PT) and Occupation and Occupational Therapy (OT) practitioners.
