These courses are offered in cooperation with Elsevier Health and utilize the hardback textbook, “Stroke Rehabilitation: A Function-Based Approach, 4th Edition” by Glen Gillen, EdD, OTR, FAOTA.

Learn to confidently manage the growing number of stroke rehabilitation clients with these exciting new courses! Using a holistic and multidisciplinary approach, this text remains the only comprehensive, evidence-based stroke rehabilitation resource for occupational therapists. The new edition has been extensively updated with the latest research in assessment and intervention, along with more evidence-based research added to every chapter. As with previous editions, this comprehensive reference uses an application-based method that integrates background medical information, samples of functionally based evaluations, and current treatment techniques and intervention strategies.

Module 1: covers pathophysiology, medical management and acute rehabilitation of stroke survivors, psychological aspects of stroke rehabilitation and improving participation and quality of live through occupation.

Module 2: covers the task-orientated approach, activity-based interventions in stroke rehabilitation and approaches to motor control dysfunction.

Module 3: covers trunk control, balance impairments and vestibular rehabilitation when performing stroke rehabilitation.

Module 4: covers upper extremity function and management and rehabilitation technologies to promote upper limb recovery after a stroke.

Module 5: covers edema control, splinting applications and functional mobility after a stroke.

Module 6: covers gait awareness, managing visual and visuospatial impairments to optimize function in patient who have had strokes and the impact of neurobehavioral deficits on activities of daily living.

Module 7: covers enhancing the performance of activities of daily living after a stroke, the treatment of cognitive-perceptual deficits using a function-based approach and managing speech and language deficits after a stroke.

Module 8: covers driving and community mobility as an instrumental activity of daily living, parenting after stroke, dysphagia management and sexual function and intimacy after a stroke.

Module 9 covers adaptations for activities of daily living, leisure activity participation after stroke, seating and wheeled mobility prescription and home evaluation and modifications for stroke patients.

Stroke Rehabilitation: A Function-Based Approach, 4th Edition: Module 5

Course Goals and Objectives:

Course Goals: This course is intended to instruct the student, through self-paced study, on edema control, splinting applications and functional mobility after a stroke.

Student Objectives:

At the end of this course, the student will be able to:
1. Analyze specific movement patterns observed during mobility tasks such as bridging, rolling, supine to sit, side-lying to sit, sitting, scooting, sit to stand transfers, and standing activities and common compensatory strategies used during those activities.
2. Identify function-based approach techniques to retrain improper mobility patterns in stroke patients
3. Identify fall risk, incidence, intrinsic and extrinsic factors and complications from falls.
4. Identify the etiology of stroke hand edema.
5. Differentiate between the clinical presentations of 3 types of stroke hand edema
6. Differentiate between 5 methods of measuring hand edema during evaluation
7. Evaluate between 10 current post-stroke had edema treatment methods as to appropriateness, clinical treatment considerations, treatment technique and ease into incorporating into a patient’s ADLs.
8. Differentiate between 10 commonly used orthoses for persons with strokes.
9. Identify correct hand placement in orthoses for Finger Abduction Orthosis, Firm Cone, Orthokinetic Orthotics, Orthokinetic Wrist Orthoses, Spasticity Reduction Orthoses, Pressure Orthoses, Wrist Extension Orthoses, Thumb Loop and Thumb Abduction Orthoses, Serpentine Orthoses, and Drop-Out Orthoses.
10. Identify considerations in prescribing and designing an orthosis for the distal extremity after stroke.
11. Identify guidelines in the fabrication of orthotic devices including materials, support for forearm, palmar surface, wrist support and digit and thumb support.
