These courses are offered in cooperation with Elsevier Health and utilize the hardback textbook, “Stroke Rehabilitation: A Function-Based Approach, 3rd Edition” by Glen Gillen, EdD, OTR, FAOTA.

Extensively updated with the latest research in assessment and intervention, these essential courses present a holistic, application-based approach that integrates background medical information, samples of functionally based evaluations, and current treatment techniques and intervention strategies to help you confidently manage the growing number of stroke rehabilitation clients.

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 for stroke patients

Module 4: covers upper extremity function and management and rehabilitation
technologies to promote upper limb recovery

Module 5: covers edema control, splinting applications and functional mobility

Module 6: covers gait awareness, management of visual and visuospatial impairments and the impact of neurobehavioral deficits on ADLs.

Module 7: covers treatment of cognitive-perceptual deficits, speech and language deficits and enhancing the performance of ADLs after a stroke.

Module 8: covers parenting after stroke, driving and community mobility, dysphagia and sexual function and intimacy.

Module 9 covers seating and wheeled mobility, home evaluation and modifications, adaption to one-handed management of the environment and leisure participation after stroke.

Stroke Rehabilitation: A Function-Based Approach: Module 3

Course Goals and Objectives:

Course Goals: This course is intended to instruct the student, through self-paced study, on the importance of trunk control, balance impairments and vestibular rehabilitation when performing stroke rehabilitation.

Student Objectives:

At the end of this course, the student will be able to:

1. Outline the functional anatomy of the trunk.

2. Distinguish the control requirements for various movement patterns and activities.

3. By activity analysis, distinguish key components of trunk control required for independence in various activities of daily living.

4. Comprehensively evaluate trunk control and its effect on function.

5. Distinguish interventions to improve and compensate for loss of trunk control.

6. Distinguish the systems involved in balance, and distinguish between the assessment and evaluation of component balance skills and balance during functional activity.

7. Outline examples of treatment plans and ideas based on specific balance dysfunctions to allow the therapist to implement focused intervention.

8. Identify key components of the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system.

9. Differentiate stroke syndromes that are associated with vestibular signs and symptoms.

10. Distinguish the general concepts of vestibular rehabilitation.
