Share a Course: Stroke Rehabilitation: Guidelines for Exercise and Training to Optimize Motor Skill: Module 3 (Electronic)
By Janet Carr EdD, FACP & Roberta B Shepherd EdD, FACP
Do you already have access to the reading materials and only need the testing materials? Are you planning to Share A Course with someone else who already has the reading materials?
This course is offered in cooperation with Elsevier Science and utilizes the textbook "Stroke Rehabilitation: Guidelines for Exercise & Training to Optimize Motor Skill "c2003. The last decade has seen rapid progress in the treatment and rehabilitation of stroke patients. This long-awaited guide covers essential task and context specific exercises and training regimes for optimal functional recovery. Based on scientific rationale and the latest clinical research, this book emphasizes the training of effective functional motor performance using methods that both provide a stimulus to the acquisition of skill and increase strength, endurance and fitness. This course is essential to those dealing with stroke patients in all rehabilitation settings!
Module 1 covers the rehabilitation environment, outcome measurement and training guidelines for balance and ambulation.
Module 2 covers the rehabilitation environment, outcome measurement and training guidelines for sit to stand training and upper extremity mobility.
Module 3 covers the rehabilitation environment, outcome measurement, impairments and adaptations of stroke patients, strength training principles and physical conditioning

Stroke Rehabilitation: Guidelines for Exercise and Training to Optimize Motor Skill: Module 3
This course is intended to instruct the student through self-paced study on the treatment principles for treating a stroke patient emphasizing early mobility in respect to impairments and adaptations of stroke patients, strength training and physical conditioning and to identify specific treatment principles for the rehabilitation environment for stroke patients.
At the end of this course the student will be able to:
1. List 3 components of the rehabilitation environment
2. List 2 methods of directing the focus of attention of a patient
3. List the 2 principle forms of feedback to patients and site examples of each
4. List 3 objective testing profiles which can be used to objectify functional outcomes of treatment
5. List 3 advantages of “group” rehabilitation over one-on-one treatment
6. List 2 causes of muscle weakness following a stroke
7. Discuss the efficacy of strength training in stroke patients from current research
8. List 4 metabolic changes that may occur in stroke patients
9. Discuss the benefits of cardiovascular training in a stroke patient
10. List 4 signs of a good prognosis from a stroke
