Course Description

Instructional Level: Beginner to Intermediate
 
This course provides the latest research in assessment and intervention; offering a definitive guide to successful outcomes in stroke rehabilitation.  The text combines aspects of background medical information, a comprehensive review of standardized and nonstandardized evaluation procedures and assessments, treatment techniques and evidence-based interventions.

Throughout this course clinicians are provided with specific suggestions to maintain a client-centered approach when working with stroke survivors.  The course includes the most up-to-date research on stroke rehabilitation from a variety of rehabilitation settings and professions, challenging the clinician to use the most current treatment approaches (including both remediation and adaptation approaches) to decrease impairments, prevent secondary complications, improve the clients ability to perform meaningful activities, decrease participation restrictions and improve quality of life.
