Course description
This unique course has been developed by an interdisciplinary team of rehabilitation specialists specifically for the experienced clinicians (PT / OT / SLP / PA) working with stroke survivors across the continuum of care.  Classification of impairments in health care is important for designing effective and appropriate treatment, and tracking improvement over time.  Clinical experts will be discussing the latest in evidence-based practice related to clinical prediction rules for stroke outcomes and the application of neuroplasticity-based practice guidelines for maximize long range stroke recovery. The program will wrap up with a panel discussion of a stroke case to showcase the application of the principles discussed by the presenters.

Course objectives
By the end of this presentation, the attendees will be able to…
• Identify clinical prognosticators for stroke recovery
• Chose standardized assessments for classifying and predicting function post stroke
• Utilize the results of clinical outcome measures to guide patient education and treatment planning
• Link principles of neuroplasticity to program design and treatment techniques
