Stroke causes a profound impact on both patients and family members and dramatically changes all aspects of life. Cognitive deficits as a result of stroke may have a permanent impact on all activities carried out during a patient's daily life, and lead to accelerated physical decline as well as increased falls risks. These include difficulties with attention, orientation, memory, thought organization, reasoning, and functional problem solving. Often the patient has limited or no awareness of these issues and the complications associated with them. Therefore, it is imperative for the rehab professional to be able to recognize these deficits, and to understand how they affect a patient's overall function, completion of ADL's, and discharge plans.

This seminar will provide you with the latest evidence-based knowledge related to cognitive deficits and their impact on stroke recovery. You will learn how to apply principles of experience-dependent neuroplasticity to select and implement functional treatment objectives that help your patients to maintain and improve their current levels of function. This workshop will increase your ability to apply patient-focused interventions that facilitate more independent completion of language-based ADL's. You will learn about proper documentation of patient goals and outcomes to optimize reimbursement for skilled services provided.

  • Identify various etiologies of cognitive deficits as they relate to the neuroanatomy of strokes

  • Define experience-dependent neuroplasticity and its impact on rehabilitation

  • Select appropriate assessments for the evaluation of cognitive deficits following stroke
