How to Successfully Treat Stroke Patients with Pusher Syndrome: The Ultimate Guide to Safer, More Predictable Recovery is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Mar 06, 2020 at The Marian House, Cherry Hill, New Jersey, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours or .6 CEUs. Target Audience: • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapy Assistants • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Exercise Physiologists Description: Pushing behavior presents serious challenges during stroke rehabilitation. Patients who push are often low level, need a lot of assistance, have considerable safety concerns, and do not respond to typical treatment interventions. This seminar will show you how to address the root causes of pusher syndrome. This lab-intensive, 6-hour seminar will show you how to address the root causes of pusher syndrome with evidence-based treatment activities and progressions. Learn how to assess and address the limiting impairments of pusher patients, utilizing the ICF model and principles of neuroplasticity to select the right intervention at the right time, and to maximize treatment outcomes. Additionally, appropriate assessment tools and functional performance tests will be practiced in order to apply treatment ideas in any environment. You will come away with techniques applicable to other patients who present with similar impairments such as difficulty with midline, retropulsion, trunk malalignments, postural control deficits, and gait dysfunction, making this course a great investment! This dynamic course will take your treatments to the next level! Objectives: • Discuss current literature regarding suggested pathology of “pusher syndrome”. • Recognize and list common characteristics and functional presentation of a patient who “pushes”. • Develop a skill set for understanding normal movements as well as executing task analysis for assessments of impairments limitations. • Discuss the criteria critical in categorizing the “pusher” patient as a low, mid, or high-level “pusher.” • Identify appropriate treatment interventions for the low, mid, and high-level “pusher” patient to specifically improve noted activity limitations. • Practice supporting and positioning techniques that enhance safely for the clinician and patient. • Strategize progressions of interventions to reduce impairments and lessen activity limitations to maximize participation for each patient with “pusher syndrome”.
