Objectives

  1. Develop a specialty niche in your facility catering to acute and chronic stroke survivors.
  2. Evaluate stroke survivors with assessment skills, scales and scores for extremity functionality, balance and stability.
  3. Employ training interventions to optimize gait speed and reduce fall risk.
  4. Determine root causes for stroke related impairments for more targeted treatment plans.
  5. Investigate how exercise instills improved cognition and connect this information to treatment approach.
  6. Employ a functional paradigm to stroke intervention and assessment.
  7. Determine appropriate levels of intensity in stroke rehab to increase patient safety.
  8. Use evidence-based techniques to more successfully work with spasticity in post-stroke patients.
