Have you been practicing neurologic rehabilitation for a few years or completed a neuro residence? Are you bored by the same basic continuing education shouts for more intensity? Do you find yourself looking for advanced application-based courses? You may be ready for Stroke Rehabilitation: The Advanced Interventions. In this recorded webinar, we will address and show evidence-based, targeted stroke rehabilitation interventions to promote greater functional recovery through central (neuroplastic) avenues, peripheral (fitness-based) resources, and psychological (patient engagement, attention, intensity) mechanisms. Topics such as rebuilding automaticity, employing practical and task-specific dual-tasking, and promoting UE/LE sensory return will be covered.

1. Beyond the Basics: The Advanced Course Content

This section will guide the participant experience and compare and contrast the basic principles from this presentation's advanced interventions.

2. Forced Use of the UE: Motor and Sensory

This section will prepare the clinician to think about AND force neuroplasticity for the sensory systems in the UE and LE, not just “systems” of vision and balance.

3. Forced Use of the LE: Motor, Sensory, and Psychology (Confidence)

In this chapter, attendees will learn about optimal manipulation of practice variables such as repetitions, intensity, promise, error. Be prepared on how to create a dosage for any patient—the recipe for motor control revealed!

4. Recreating Automaticity

This chapter will discuss the concept of recreating automaticity. While we help people regain movement, do our current rehabilitation approaches help them learn how to move without thinking about it?

5. The Adaptable Patient: A Practical Strategy to Reduce Tone and Increase Consistent Function

Fear, fatigue, novel environments, pressure, speed—all of these can cause a patient's tone to increase. Are your techniques helping your patients be at their best in all environments?

6. The Severely Impaired and Frail Patient: Management Approaches

Chapter 6 will cover approaching the weakest, most impaired, and frail—with evidence. We will discuss how to manage opportunities to demonstrate improvement for documentation and, most importantly, patient engagement.

7. Maximize Your Patient Engagement

Chapter 7 will examine using advanced motor control theories and seeing them applied to maximize potential in ADLs and mobility, as well as moving through common barriers and statements, such as: “Someone else will do that for me. Can I work on _______ instead?”

8. Summary

This chapter will summarize the topics and learning experience covered in this course, and provide contact information for future engagement or follow-up questions.

9. Question and Answer Session

Chapter 9 is a viewer-submitted question and answer session facilitated by Mike Studer.
