Z 5/12-5/13 28th Annual Interdisciplinary Stroke Course: The Neuroscience of Stroke Rehabilitation from the Inside Out
A knowledge of neuroanatomy and the process of neuro-recovery is a critical skill in diagnosing and/or predicting outcomes and the assessment and treatment of individuals with stroke. It is crucial for the interdisciplinary team to be able to interpret neuroradiology to effectively achieve successful outcomes in line with neuro-recovery. Fundamentally, it is important to understand how to change behavior at the patient, provider, system, or even policy level. Implementation science will help the learner to understand how key principles or frameworks can aide in the selection of interventions, especially as they pertain to neurorehabilitation.
Day one of this course will focus on neuroanatomy and neuroimaging. Attendees will apply that understanding to real-life case studies and demonstrate how to implement neuroanatomy and neuroradiology in a clinical reality. Case-based application and discussion will take a patient from initial onset, through various levels of rehabilitation, and reintegration into the community.
Day two will review translational research as applied to the stroke population both at an overall foundational and at a discipline-specific level. Participants will explore real-life obstacles in the healthcare system that may limit the implementation of evidence-based research into routine clinical practice. Learners will demonstrate knowledge translation principles in specific case studies and demonstrate how practitioners can strengthen clinical practice and evolve day-to-day care. This Two Day Online Course will involve aspects of didactic, clinical application, small and large group collaboration, and panel discussion to enhance and transform stroke care.
LOCATION: 100% online; no need to travel

OBJECTIVES: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify and describe major neuro-anatomical structures of the brain, their functions and anticipated deficits present following Left Middle Cerebral Artery (MCA), Right brain, Hemorrhagic and Brainstem strokes.
- Discuss the clinical implications that occur post-stroke to develop a patient-specific clinical assessment based on neurological structure and impairments.
- Analyze optimal outcome measures and create a plan of care based on neuroanatomy and neuroplasticity.
- Summarize and apply key principles and procedures of implementation science to patient examples and outcomes data.
- Synthesize and formulate appropriate intervention delivery recommendations for discharge with specific considerations on pre-morbid factors or conditions, health literacy and financial resources.
- Apply Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) and Evidence Based Practices (EBP) into the treatment of gait, communication and upper extremity management post-stroke.
