Facial Rehabilitation: Evaluation and Treatment Strategies for the Patient with Facial Palsy
Presented by Mara Robinson, PT, MS, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3644Level: Introductory4.5 Hours
A review of the anatomy and etiology of peripheral facial nerve disorders, and how to evaluate a patient with facial palsy is included in the first segment of this series. The role of physical therapy, as well as medical and surgical interventions, are described in detail in the second segment.This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Facial Rehabilitation: Treatment Strategies for the Patient with Facial Palsy
Presented by Mara Robinson, PT, MS, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3624Level: Introductory2.5 Hours
This course is the second part of a two-part, 4-hour webinar. The role of physical therapy, as well as medical and surgical interventions, are described in detail in the second webinar. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Facial Rehabilitation: Evaluation Strategies for the Patient with Facial Palsy
Presented by Mara Robinson, PT, MS, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3623Level: Introductory2 Hours
This course is the first part of a two part, 4-hour webinar. A review of the anatomy and etiology of peripheral facial nerve disorders, and how to evaluate a patient with facial palsy is included in this segment. The role of physical therapy, as well as medical and surgical interventions, are described in detail in the second webinar.

Motor Learning Series
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3606Level: Introductory4 Hours
Participants will review the models of motor control and learning along with the supporting and contradictory evidence related to each model. Factors such as practice and feedback will be the focus of this course, and how therapists manipulate these factors to maximize motor learning and positive neuroplasticity/recovery. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Individualizing Balance Programs Across the Degenerative Diseases
Presented by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3550Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This session will expose participants to contemporary and future advances in balance rehabilitation for persons with a degenerative disease. Evidence in the literature and practical videotape applications will reveal how to objectively test and how to create a corresponding balance program for this population. Considerations of diagnosis, examination results, personality, cognition, and environmental resources are only a few of the considerations that will be directly addressed in this session across the spectrum of multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson and related diseases (PD), Alzheimer disease (AD), multiple systems atrophy (MSA) and cerebellar degenerative conditions. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Stroke Rehabilitation: Maximizing Recovery in Acute and Chronic Cases
Presented by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3549Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This presentation will include practical clinical applications of the latest evidence in recovery from stroke: acute and chronic. Participants should be ready to challenge commonly-held beliefs and practices about stroke rehabilitation in terms of timing and potential; learned nonuse; and the viability of neuroplasticity for persons > 1-year post stroke. Practical applications in this course through video case studies may stretch your mind on how to promote neuroplasticity in all patients. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

ALS in Acute Care: Taking the Fear Out of Hospitalizations
Presented by Jennifer Liu, PT, DPT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3521Level: Introductory2 Hours
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a complex diagnosis and this course discusses the implications ALS for physical therapy, especially in the hospital setting. The intent is to give physical therapists a better understanding of what they can do to decrease the fear and anxiety for both the patient and therapist. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Beyond Bed Exercise in the Acute Neurologic Population
Presented by Angela Rusher, PT, DPT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3523Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course provides therapists with the evidence supporting the use of mobility technology into treatment interventions of the neurologically involved patient in the acute care setting to improve patient outcomes with a safe patient handling interdisciplinary team approach. It will also highlight “low tech” interventions that help maximize trunk balance/control, as well as endurance to improve patient outcomes for discharge planning. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Balance Outcome Measures – Selection and Utilization
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3548Level: Introductory2 Hours
Balance is a common focus of rehabilitation intervention, and objective assessment of balance is critical for guiding intervention and demonstrating patient progress. An understanding of the basics of balance outcome measures, how to select them, and how to utilize them correctly will enhance therapists’ practice and patient outcomes. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Factors which Influence Motor Learning - Merging Psychological and Movement Science Evidence into Practice
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3500Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Rehabilitation professionals have long known that factors such as practice and feedback can impact motor learning in our patients and that how we manipulate these factors can either facilitate or obstruct motor learning and neuroplasticity. More recent research has elucidated the influence of psychological contribution to the optimization of motor learning, and this course will focus on cognitive, motivational and attentional variables, and how these may be utilized in the traditional motor learning paradigm to improve outcomes in rehabilitation. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
