This is a 12-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.
At the end of this course attendees will be able to…
- Discuss the pathoanatomy and pathophysiology of selected progressive neurological diseases.
- Identify clinical signs and symptoms of selected progressive neurological diseases for the purpose differential diagnosis.
- List the components of a comprehensive examination of individuals with selected progressive neurological diseases.
