23rd Annual Brain Injury Symposium is organized by Baptist Health South Florida and would be held on Oct 14, 2017 at South Miami Hospital, Victor E. Clarke Education Center, Miami, Florida, United States Of America.
The target audience for this medical event for Neurologists, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Physiatrists, General Internists, Family Physicians, Pediatricians, Physical Therapists, Physical Therapy Assistants, Occupational Therapists, Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants, Speech-Language Pathologists, Nurses, Social Workers, Case Managers, Mental Health Workers, Recreational Therapists, Pharmacists, Athletic Trainers, Radiology Technologists. This CME Conference has been approved with a maximum of 7.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
Symposium Goal :
To improve the quality of patient care by providing an in-depth update on new techniques and research in the treatment of traumatic brain injury and stroke patients and implementing evidence-based strategies for the assessment and treatment of patients with brain injuries.
Educational Objectives :
Upon completion of this conference, participants should be better able to:
• Describe the conditions under which neuroplastic changes occur.
• Utilize simple clinical interventions that apply neuroplasticity principles.
• Describe the advantages and limitations of computed tomography (CT) angiography in the acute stroke patient.
• Describe the advantages and limitations of CT perfusion in the acute stroke patient.
• Describe the various domains assessed in a typical neuropsychological evaluation.
• List the conditions for which neuropsychological assessment provides useful information.
• Differentiate between a “fixed” and a “flexible” neuropsychological test battery.
• Identify the role of participation outcomes in the implementation of functional treatment.
• Summarize the underlying principles of good therapy technique.
• Describe the fundamental differences between personalized and contextualized treatment.
• Address barriers patients face for participation within an individualized case and a healthcare system.
• Describe the role and relationship of brain plasticity with physical exercise and cognitive performance.
• Explain the impact physical exercise has on the lifespan of healthy adults and on individuals with Parkinson’s Disease, post-stroke and post-TBI.
• Identify data-driven, dose-specific recommendations of exercise for brain health as concluded from a large-scale quantitative systematic review.
• Implement tools to improve exercise literacy and aid in the promotion of increased activity levels in older adults.
• Implement strategies to utilize the current applications of robotics in the neurological rehabilitation of patients.
• Examine the current state of brain-computer interface technology and describe future directions for its application in the rehabilitation of the neurologically impaired patient.
• Review the current state of functional electrical stimulation (FES) in stroke/TBI recovery and the future directions for application of this technology.
• Review current treatment options for acute ischemic stroke.
• Determine if acute stroke patients meet eligibility criteria for reperfusion therapy.
• Recognize the signs and symptoms of the most common complications of acute stroke therapies.
