Neuro Summit Part 2: Optimizing Post-Stroke Rehabilitation With the Use of AFOs and FES

Description

In this webinar, you’ll gain crucial knowledge around the best practices and evidence to support clinical decision-making for choosing and applying ankle foot orthoses (AFO) and functional electrical stimulation (FES) post-stroke. While the use of AFO and FES to address mobility restrictions of individuals
with neurologic conditions is common practice, there is variability in clinical decision-making and application. Based on the latest Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) for the use of AFO and FES post-stroke, this webinar will supply you with the latest evidence and a decision-making framework to ensure you feel equipped to provide a patient-centered approach that best meets the needs of the individual patient. Multiple case examples will be covered using the decision-making framework. This webinar is applicable to practitioners in physical therapy across multiple settings: acute care, outpatient, skilled nursing facilities, long-term care, and home health. After each session, there will be a Q&A portion to get your most pressing questions answered.

Session 1: AFO and FES Post Stroke: Principles and Parameters

Session 2: AFO and FES Post Stroke: Impact on Gait and Function

How to Prepare

Learning Objectives

  1. Determine gait deficits that may benefit from AFO or FES
  2. Analyze AFO and FES features
  3. Apply AFO and FES principles to select an appropriate device
  4. Prioritize AFO types and FES for patients post-stroke based on gait deficits and the physical therapy examination
  5. Analyze the available evidence and clinical practice guideline recommendations to support the use of AFO and FES in individuals post-stroke
  6. Determine device effects on gait and function
  7. Apply a shared clinical decision-making framework
  8. Integrate the available evidence for the use of AFO and FES, knowledge of gait subtasks, and results of a patient examination into the shared clinical decision-making for a patient/client case
