#7229 Clinical Neuroanatomy for Rehabilitation Therapists©
Do you wonder where the time goes during the evaluation period and you did not assess an impairment critical to a patient's diagnosis and ability to function? Would knowing lesion site and the affected anatomical structures clue you into performing key assessments and prioritizing treatment interventions? If so, your patients would have a better-developed and precise plan of care to address impairments, thus leading to a restoration of movement or compensation strategy to safely function in the environment.
The purpose of this course is to review neuroanatomy of the cerebrum, cerebellum and brainstem and resulting impairments as a prerequisite for the course, Clinical Neuroanatomy for Rehabilitation Therapists Lesions, Impairments, and Treatment Interventions©. Video and written case studies will be used to apply knowledge of neuroanatomy and subsequent lesions.
Definitions of primary and secondary impairments as well as restorative, compensatory, a preventative interventions will be discussed to prepare the participant to prioritize impairments and create a patient-centered plan of care. (Intermediate Level)
