Description

Working with stroke patients is deeply meaningful and incredibly rewarding. And you strive to help each client who’s counting on you to facilitate the improvements that can change their lives.

But some patients are so impaired that treatment becomes overwhelming. Others make exceptional gains in clinical settings, only to hit a wall in less controlled environments. As time passes without results, even the most promising patient can feel the sun setting on the person she used to be, growing disengaged and depressed -- convinced she can’t progress further with therapy.

If you’re not up to speed on the latest treatment strategies, she might be right.

Earn your Certificate in Stroke Rehabilitation and learn how to apply innovative techniques that completely redefine what’s possible for your patients!

Built on today’s best practices, this program will show you how to develop and market a world-class stroke rehabilitation program with tools and strategies that have helped countless survivors leave their limitations behind, even 20 years post stroke.

Sign up today and leave this one-of-a-kind live webcast training knowing that when your next patient tells you how she hopes to return to work or stay active with her grandkids, you’ll be able to confidently guide her toward rapid functional improvements with the best methods available in neurological rehab!
