C174 - Rehabilitation in Neurology

Event Time: Thursday April 26, 2018 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Neuro-rehabilitation
Director(s): Marc Slutzky MD, PhD
Description: Neurologic rehabilitation is a dynamic process through which patients optimize physical, cognitive, and social functions. It is a patient-centered, multidisciplinary endeavor involving neurologists and a wide range of providers. The ultimate objectives are to renew or maintain independence, participation, and quality of life despite the impairments. Over the past two decades, growing evidence supports specific approaches to neurologic rehabilitation. Rehabilitation is also the translation of basic and clinical neuroscience research to maximize mechanisms of neural reorganization and compensation. Faculty will use the examples of post-stroke care, as well as the care of patients with spinal cord injury, to highlight the role of neurologists in rehabilitation, as well as highlight future directions and emerging technologies that promise to revolutionize neurologic rehabilitation.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to develop a greater understanding of the multidisciplinary care of patients with disability from neurologic diseases, as well as develop understanding of the current research for improving care.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge
