Addressing Patient Behavior by Brain Lesion Site: Clinical Tools & Strategies Specific to Patient Deficits (May 16, 2019)
May 16, 2019 | CME 6.00 | USD $229 | Plano, Texas
Addressing Patient Behavior by Brain Lesion Site: Clinical Tools & Strategies Specific to Patient Deficits is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on May 16, 2019 at SpringHill Suites by Marriott Dallas Plano/Frisco, Plano, Texas, United States of America. This Conference has neeb approved for a maximum of 6.0 CCUs. Target Audience : • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapist Assistants • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Social Workers • Speech-Language Pathologists • Certified Brain Injury Specialists • Recreational Therapists Course Description: Neuroanatomy is admittedly complex and overwhelming. Clinicians working in rehabilitation are faced with growing caseloads, diminished resources/reimbursement, and increasingly medically complex patients with the expectation of improving outcomes and reducing length of stay. Honing knowledge of clinically-relevant neuroanatomy and neuropathology can predict dysfunction and intuitively create a scaffold for assessment and treatment even before meeting the patient. Predetermining potential deficits leads to a more tightly defined diagnostic battery and expedites treatment formulation. By deducing the patient’s experience, the clinician can also prepare for behavioral barriers to engagement and understand the healing process with greater compassion. In this one-day seminar, participants will learn intermediate level neurophysiology as it relates to cognitive-linguistic skills and behavioral control, as well as explore mindfulness techniques for stress reduction. The overlying foci of the course are to arm treating professionals with an improved clinical eye, predicting dysfunction, and expedite the pathway to treatment. Course content will also include patient-focused educational materials for stroke and traumatic brain injury ready to utilize by treating practitioners. Course Objectives: • Categorize the anatomy and function of lobes of the brain as they apply to behavioral control. • Characterize the neurophysiology of memory and effect of fear/anger upon new learning and memory. • Analyze the effect of traumatic and non-traumatic injuries upon cognitive centers. • Connect neurotransmitters with the communication system within the brain. • Evaluate the optic system and lesion locations that affect engagement and accuracy in therapy. • Recommend simple neuroanatomy-based techniques to rapidly de-escalate stress for patients and caretakers. • Assess neuro-behavioral barriers that impact new learning. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
