Join us for this interactive, high-level webinar with Dr. Mike Studer, covering poststroke shoulder, neglect, and pusher syndrome--issues affecting the most challenged patients after stroke. You'll gain insight and instruction to help you advance your assessment and treatment tools for these conditions so you can better help people who may appear to have poor rehabilitation potential access neuroplasticity and the highest level of function possible. The webinar will include video case studies and literature review, delivered in a practical, application-based style so you can immediately incorporate what you've learned into your own practice.

Learning Objectives
  • Create an evidence-based care plan for persons with subluxed, flaccid, and/or painful shoulders post stroke
  • Correlate best evidence in applications for poststroke contraversive pushing (pusher syndromes): retro (backward) and lateropulsive (side)
  • Prioritize best management for rehabilitation and caregiving in persons with body and environmental neglect
  • Design home programming for persons with complicated stroke syndromes (shoulder, neglect, and pusher) in order to facilitate participation in daily activities
