Course Description:

This presentation will include practical clinical applications for the physical and occupational therapist to best rehabilitate patients with cognitive impairment from stroke, brain injury and other neurological impairment.

Participants completing this course will be ready to recognize the common cognitive impairments, individualize their care (exam and treatment), and set appropriate goals. We will reveal how to systematically evaluate and prescribe an individualized program for each of the cognitive impairments addressed: awareness, attention, memory and perceptual impairment (including neglect).  Additionally, this course will reveal some of the latest developments in motivational and other psychological considerations for therapists.

Program Objectives:

  • Be aware of recent evidence-based advances in cognitive rehabilitation, recovery of self efficacy, motivation, and the psychological variables in rehabilitation.
  • Recognize clinical applications, functionally-relevant documentation, and measurement applications in awareness, attention, dual-task, and problem solving.
  • Describe available resources in psychology and executive function for clinical use in rehabilitation.
  • Describe modalities for and interventions designed for optimal motivation, autonomy, competence, and self efficacy.
