Z 12/08/21 Neurogenic Cultural Considerations for Assessment & Treatment Across the Rehabilitation Setting

Time:  December 8, 2021, 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm Central Standard Time.

Note: If you are unable to attend the live event, you will be automatically enrolled in the on-demand version.  

Description: The aim of this webinar is to engage clinicians (PT/ST/OT) within rehabilitation settings to reflect upon, evaluate and intentionally address their own cultural competency. Rehabilitation providers will define, examine and construct evidence-based principles through the lens of person-centered care and shared decision-making. The webinar will provide participants with tools for critical self-reflection as they relate to assessment and treatment of adults with neurogenic disorders.

Objectives: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: 

  • Distinguish the key differences between unconscious and consciousness provider bias and contrast their distinct impact on achieving positive patient outcomes within rehabilitation.
  • Summarize the evidence that link the patient/provider relationship and communication disparities to population- level health disparities.
  • Identify effective solutions to address unconscious provider bias within the rehabilitation setting.
  • Combine the key principles of cultural humility with clinical practice within the rehabilitation.
