Stroke Survivor: Effective Management in Physical and Occupational Therapy

Course Description: Stroke is the leading cause of serious long-term disability in the United States. Every year, about 790,000 people in the United States have a stroke and about 150,000 dies each year. There are 7 million stroke survivors living in the US today and two-thirds of them are disabled who need long-term assistance from caregivers and from society. This two-day course will focus on therapeutic management of stroke survivors and address the latest research and clinical advances that have impacted the functional improvement following rehabilitation of individual with stroke. The concepts and principles of this intermediate to advance-level course will enhance the clinician’s knowledge base and hands-on skills through lecture, case studies, videotape presentations and lab sessions. Instruction will include review and analysis of relevant topics including pathophysiology, vascular syndromes, sensory-motor deficits, diagnostic test, differential diagnosis, medical managements, acute and post-acute rehabilitation with different interventions. Emphasis will be placed on current research and novel discoveries on variety of therapeutic approaches in the rehabilitation of stroke survivors. This course is designed for participants with an intermediate level of experience.
