Description

ALERT - The health and safety of our learners is of the utmost importance to us. We are closely monitoring the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

After much consideration and with recent circumstances changing so rapidly, Charlotte AHEC will now offer this course as a Live Interactive Zoom event. We are fully committed to ensuring that our attendees, faculty and staff remain safe and well.

Zoom Training Date & Time (Eastern Standard Time):
Saturday, November 7, 2019 - 8:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

In order to receive credit, all attendees must remain online for the full duration of the training day from 8:00 a.m. - 5:30 a.m. Breaks will be given throughout each training day and attendance will be monitored (partial credit will not be given).

This course is designed to employing evidence-based practice to increase function in patients with neurological compromise. Following the principles of the ICF model and The Guide to Physical Therapy Practice, a comprehensive review of body structure and functions will be reviewed using a suggested evaluation framework to identify underlying deficits and co-morbidities contributing to limited participation. Tests and measures for postural, fascial and integumentary systems will be reviewed for practical assessment and re-assessment. Nutritional consultation, as it relates to gut health, general wellness/prevention, hydration and cognition will be discussed as a part of our practice patterns. Parental instructional strategies to increase follow through of recommendations will be discussed, to improve upon practice within the context of daily life.



Benefits of Attending:
• Immediately hone your evaluation skills using multi-system framework you can put into practice immediately
• Practice pertinent tests and measures to assess for underlying conditions and co-morbidities of the integumentary, postural, sensory and respiratory systems
• Practical treatment strategies to incorporate current principles of motor learning thru a multi-sensory, dynamic approach to promote functional participation
• Effective, evidence-based parent involvement strategies to increase caregiver engagement and follow through of therapist recommendations
• Hands on labs to engage in postural and scar assessment, joint mobilizations, and sensory strategies
• Engage in functional nutritional education for clients for daily intake as well as pre/post op recommendations to promote healing from within

Virtual Lab Notice: Please dress in lab appropriate clothing. We will be discussing and practicing each evaluation and treatment technique.

Objectives

  • Identify the components of the central and peripheral nervous system;
  • Understand key concepts of the integumentary system and its relationship to motor learning, as well as employ reliable assessment tools for scars;
  • Apply contemporary concepts of motor learning and neuroplasticity to treatment strategies;
  • Know how to integrate parents/caregivers into the process of rehabilitation at home, including nutrition;
  • Employ an evaluation framework as a multi-system screening tool to identify key components impairing function, which will be prioritized and targeted for intervention and goal setting;
  • Describe the components of the core and how each impact postural control, as well as treatment strategies to improve function;
  • Exercise clinical judgement in the use of focal or whole-body vibration.
