You’ve been working with stroke patients for a while now, and you’re seeing how treatment requires a more complex plan of attack.
Maybe you’re just now getting into stroke rehab and have no idea how to approach your client’s treatment in the most effective way possible. No one wants to waste time, right?
Either way, treating stroke is complicated.
Patients exhibit a variety of impairments that encompass the physical and cognitive. The growing number of impairments is overwhelming when you’re trying to map a rehab plan.
And some patients - no matter how hard you try - don’t seem to respond.
The progress falls apart in less controlled environments. The patient isn’t responsive to your instructions. They grow more disengaged by the day.
It’s understandable if you get frustrated, even though you love working with this population.
The trick is feeling confident you can approach treatment with a wider understanding of why your patient isn’t responding well, and how to navigate their situation, so both of you can see progress. Discover how to create a comprehensive treatment plan in Stroke Rehab Master Class: Best Practices for Improved Outcomes.
Guided by 3 top stroke rehab experts, this online course will show you adaptable rehab interventions that give you a better understanding of the physical and behavioral implications of stroke, along with how to navigate them.
