Description

This course addresses the most current research about neuroplasticity with a patient-centered focus. Movement experiences are created and modified by therapists in order to drive the process of neuroplasticity. In addition to the neurophysiological adaptations that occur, many psycho-emotional and behavioral factors impact motor learning and recovery. Patient-centered rehabilitation, based on factors such as autonomy, self-efficacy, attention, salience and confidence, has been shown to play a crucial role in improving functional outcomes. This course instructs the reader in what takes place within the central and peripheral nervous systems when neuroplastic adaptations occur. The topics of self-practice (the home program), patient compliance, caregiver support, different models of feedback, and more are discussed in detail to gain an appreciation for their contribution to functional recovery. Several case studies are included to apply these concepts in actual patient situations. This is an excellent course for therapists working in neuro rehab, as well as home health, geriatrics, or orthopedics with or without a neurological co-morbidity.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------COURSE OBJECTIVES: After completing this continuing education course, the learner will be able to: 1. Identify which regions of the brain are responsible for generation of skilled movement 2. Recall the role and mechanisms of the three sensory systems involved with skilled movement 3. Identify which specific anatomic and physiological adaptations occur within the body as a result of neuroplasticity 4. Identify the three unique phases of motor learning 5. Recognize the relevance of procedural learning as it relates to skilled movement 6. Recall the importance of intensity and salience in the context of neurological rehabilitation 7. Recognize how behavioral and psycho-emotional factors affect motor learning and functional recovery 8. Apply the principles of variability of practice, attention, confidence, self-efficacy, autonomy, enhanced expectancies, and feedback in case studies to improve functional outcomes
