Join us in our online virtual learning series:
Translating the Science to Practice: Neuroplasticity and Motor Learning in Neurological Rehabilitation. Saturday, October 31, 2020 from 8am -5pm
Open to: Physical Therapy (PT), Physical Therapy Assistants (PTA), Occupational Therapists (OT), Occupational Therapy Assistants (OTA), Speech Language Pathologists (SLP), Nursing
This course will provide a brief focused review of current literature of neuroplasticity and the clinical research demonstrating the occurrence of neuroplastic changes following injury. In this course, participants will review the models of motor learning along with the supporting and contradictory evidence related to each model.
Current treatment approaches will be discussed in the light of the motor control and motor learning models. Pertinent evidence related to feedback, practice, motivation, attentional focus, and other contributors to motor learning will be discussed.
This course will review the necessary ingredients to drive neuroplastic changes and offer practical examples of creating rehabilitation interventions integrate these into a plan of care that is evidence based to maximize recovery. Participants will have an opportunity to apply this knowledge through written and video case studies.
