Movement Disorders:  Applying the Evidence

Saturday, May 21 - Sunday, May 22, 2011

 

Course Description:  This is a 14-hour course designed to provide evidence-based examination and intervention strategies to rehabilitation professionals for patient populations with dynamic and constantly fluctuating abilities:  those with progressive neurological diseases.  Initially, a foundation is built around the pathoanatomy and pathophysiology of selected movement disorders.  The remainder of the course will be presented in a case-based format with group discussions and psychomotor labs.  By the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to use knowledge gained about the irregular and often unpredictable course of a progressive neurological disease to optimize function and mobility.

 

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:

1.     Discuss the pathoanatomy and pathophysiology of selected progressive neurological diseases.

2.     Identify clinical signs and symptoms of selected progressive neurological diseases for the purpose differential diagnosis.

3.     List the components of a comprehensive examination of individuals with selected progressive neurological diseases.

4.     Utilize clinical outcome scales to chart improvement in physical impairments and functional limitations for individuals with selected progressive neurological diseases.

5.     Apply intervention techniques including motor learning concepts to individuals with selected progressive neurological diseases.
