Objectives of this course:
On completion of this CPD activity, the participant will be able to:
- List and define the available neurorehabilitation techniques in the treatment of the UE post-stroke
- Discuss the efficacy of these various techniques
- Select evidence-based approaches relative to client characteristics for use in rehabilitation using the decisional tree.
Summary of the article:
This article reviews each of the neurorehabilitation techniques that may be useful in promoting upper extremity motor recovery post-stroke. A decisional tree according to the patient’s characteristics is proposed to guide clinical reasoning in selecting appropriate treatment techniques to be used in rehabilitation.
You have until the 31st of December 2020 to complete your task.
