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 as it relates to rehabilitation for occupational and physical therapy practice. A variety of impairments as related to anatomical lesion sites will be discussed via the use of research studies and or case reports. Treatment interventions based on instructor’s experience, evidence-based practice and participants’ suggestions will be offered as options for patient care. The World Health Organization (WHO) International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) will be used as a framework for case study delivery of care in neurorehabilitation, demonstrating assessment of and treatment for impairments and functional outcomes achieved.
3. Discuss the relevancy of test measures based on lesion site and impairment level.
4. Choose optimal treatment interventions based on measurement outcomes and clinical research.
5. Define the purpose of the World Health Organization and the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health.
6. Integrate information and justify treatment interventions for neurologic rehabilitation practice.
