PWR! Therapist Training and Certification Workshop is organized by Parkinson Wellness Recovery (PWR) and will be held from Oct 19 - 20, 2019 at UAMS - University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, Arkansas, United States of America. Eligible Participants: Physical and Occupational Therapists, Physical and Occupational Therapist Assistants, PT, DPT, PTA, OT, OTA students Accreditation: Approved for 17.5 Contact Hours in New Mexico Course Description: Recent advances in basic and clinical science research suggest exercise and learning approaches may protect, repair, and optimize function in persons with Parkinson disease (PD).1-12 To be effective, proactive rehabilitation paradigms are needed that deliver ongoing programming for life, starting at diagnosis, and that are guided by the essential principles of learning and neuroplasticity.12 Participants will be introducedto a comprehensive research-based framework called Exercise4BrainChange® to guide clinicians in how to implement essential principles of learning and neuroplasticity identified in the literature to real world practice. Techniques will be described that advocate forced use, progressive difficulty, reinforcement, active engagement, empowerment, attention to action, sensory awareness training, and neural readiness (e.g., aerobic conditioning, mental imagery). Each of these principles is rooted in research in exercise science, motor control, and motor learning. This framework will be integrated with an understanding of the pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease for greater specificity of training. Objectives and Goals: • Discuss recent advances in Parkinson disease etiology, pathophysiology, and diagnostic criteria. • Recognize motor and non-motor symptoms and how they interfere with function and present barriers to participation. • Summarize recent advances in basic and clinical neuroscience that have brought exercise (aerobics and skill acquisition) to the forefront in PD as it relates to optimal brain function and skill acquisition. • Explain the significance of targeting the training of amplitude into function (PWR!Moves®) as the foundation for a comprehensive PD-specific program. • Perform the Basic 4 | PWR!Moves® in 5 positions: prone, supine, all 4’s, sitting, standing, and explain how they target foundational skills that become impaired in people with PD and how that interferes with function. • Vary the goal of how the Basic 4 | PWR!Moves® are instructed and explain how that may differentially target multiple symptoms of PD (e.g., rigidity, bradykinesia, incoordination, automaticity). • Describe how working on each of the Basic 4 | PWR!Moves® provides a PD-specific approach to targeting general fitness problems related to flexibility, strength, coordination, balance, and posture. • Demonstrate how PWR! Boosts can be a stand-alone program or integrated into PWR!Moves® exercises and discuss why they are important for PWP. • Demonstrate effective use of modeling, mental imagery, attentional focus, external cues, instruction, and reward-based and task-specific feedback to achieve optimal engagement for optimal performance and learning. • Explain the significance of implementing PWR!Moves® as a foundation for PD-specific exercise across settings (therapy and community) that can be a stand-alone program, or that can be integrated into task-specific training or other research-based community exercise programming (e.g., treadmill, cycling, pole walking, yoga, boxing, dance, Tai Chi). • Develop a comprehensive treatment plan for individuals with different disease severity using video case studies that is consistent with PWR!4Life™ essentials and the European Guidelines. • Implement PWR!Moves® exercise progressions using video cases to illustrate real world implementation of Exercises4BrainChange® framework across disease severity. • Discuss the unmet needs in PD rehabilitation and possible solutions to their resolution through novel paradigms and community partnerships.
