Organization:
Motivations, Inc.

Date(s) of Event:
July 27-28, 2019

Location / Venue for Event:
WakeMed

Preferred Website Link:

Summary of Event:
This dynamic evolving course will concentrate on progressive, effective evaluation and treatment schemes for infants and young children with a diagnosis of torticollis with or without plagiocephaly, including challenging cases. The course is designed to provide therapists with current research and recommendations pertaining to the implications of torticollis, sleep posture and increased use of positional devices on infant postural and motor development. Current evidence-based clinical pathways and guidelines for management of torticollis, movement impairments and infant head shape, including Clinical Practice Guidelines from APTA - Academy of Pediatric Physical Therapy, will be incorporated. Red flags for related early infancy and preschool diagnoses will be appraised. Current functional, clinically oriented evaluation and evidence based treatment strategies for infants and young children that can be integrated into routines and play will be provided. Diagnostic procedures and surgical intervention will be reviewed. Recommendations for follow-up and secondary specialist consultations will be presented. Emphasis on home exercise programs, effective strategies, and long term follow-up to team with parents will be explored throughout both days.

Summary of Event:
As clinicians treating individuals with central nervous system dysfunction, such as cerebral palsy, congenital hypotonia and other multi-system impairments, we can make advances in our clinical decision-making skills by establishing hypotheses regarding the critical impairments that we observe in our assessments and be more precise in our treatment sessions. This 2-day, hand-on lab intensive seminar is designed to further enhance the ability to treat individual’s with CNS dysfunction. We will briefly review the current Neuro-Developmental Treatment Approach principles and rationales that support our treatment planning and the strategies used within a treatment session. Development of your handling skills will be emphasized as a way to influence multi-system and single system impairments related to the client’s functional outcomes. Development of specific handling skills related to in effective posture and movement behaviors observed in the neurologically challenged client will be the primary focus of this seminar. The focus is on pediatrics however because the labs are practiced with adults the information is applicable to the adult population. Discussion of therapeutic intervention and the clinical decision-making process will be discussed. A combination of didactic, video examples, laboratory learning experiences and patient demonstration will ensure the integration of NDT as a foundation for intervention. These CEU's can also be used toward NDTA re-certification.

# 256 Brain and Concussion Rehabilitation: Custom Treatment Plans Tailored to the Brain Injury Survivor

Contact Name:
Scott Boston

Organization:
Motivations, Inc.

Date(s) of Event:
June 1-2, 2019

Location / Venue for Event:
WakeMed

Preferred Website Link:

Summary of Event:
This course will cover the most up to date research in neuroplasticity and connect it to rehabilitation techniques. Only recently have neuroscience research techniques allowed investigation into brain rehabilitation. Through these tools we are gaining valuable insight into motor control and cognition, and how function is recovered after neurological insult. Our skilled therapeutic interventions can be fine-tuned to drive the processes that enable the brain to repair itself. This course will combine the latest evidence in neuroplasticity, motor control and physiology in order to identify and sequence a custom treatment plan tailored to the brain injury survivor. Hands on lab sessions will further facilitate proper examination and treatment interventions designed to engage the survivor and promote a rehab program that translates to daily life. Finally, case scenarios will be incorporated to pair clinical reasoning to situations that are encountered in the clinical setting.

Summary of Event:
One of the longest running and most requested stroke courses in the field! Participants will develop a toolbox of evaluation tools and treatment strategies for people with stroke, from the days following stroke to the community setting. Learn easy, free ways to find the best evidence to support your treatments, 4 stroke specific, validated evaluation tools to gauge patient progress and improve reimbursement, and effective treatment strategies. Frequently seen impairments, and the theory and effectiveness of common treatments and technologies are discussed, including approaches to spasticity, shoulder pain, ambulation, and hemiparesis. Video cases and hands on “breakouts” complement didactic information. The course is hierarchically organized so that knowledge and treatments discussed build on previously presented information. Expand your treatment and assessment toolbox with this stimulating course!

Summary of Event:
With competing expectations of doing more and faster while improving quality and outcomes, rehabilitation professionals face challenges when working with people living with dementia (PLWD). This interactive session offers learners an opportunity to connect dementia-specific content (progression and types of dementia) with level-modified cuing skills to maximize the impact of rehabilitation on functional outcomes. The conclusion of the workshop focuses on two critical areas impacting rehabilitation: pain management and challenging behaviors.
