Physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, and nurses play a pivotal role in the recovery and treatment of individuals with disorders of consciousness (DoC). Join us for this dynamic webinar, which will introduce current evidence and provide practitioners with an overview of neurological injury resulting in DoC. During this webinar, we will highlight the stages and prevalence/incidence of DoC and provide an overview of the 2018 Clinical Practice Guidelines for DoC developed by the American Academy of Neurology (AAN); the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine (ACRM); and the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR). We will also discuss medical ethics related to DoC, including statistics on misdiagnosis and ethical implications as well as critical considerations within the first week of a DoC diagnosis that practitioners can directly apply to their current practice. The webinar will conclude with information on upcoming resources focused on translating evidence to clinical assessment and treatment of this complex, marginalized population.
