There is a significant amount of research that proves a comprehensive, holistic, and team approach to rehabilitation is best after neurological injuries. Implementing this approach to rehab may be difficult for healthcare workers who have typically used a medical model, segmented treatment approach such as nursing, separate from therapies, and separate from physician care.
This course provides an overview of evidence-based team approaches for neurorehabilitation. Specific examples of case studies and team treatment plans are presented throughout the presentation. There is a focus on giving participants therapeutic tools and ideas to take back to their organizations.
This Seminar-on-Demand is 3 contact hours in length (check your state’s approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession).
