Occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, neuropsychologists and others who treat individuals with brain injury may now learn ALL of the evidence-based cognitive rehabilitation strategies recommended in scientific literature in one two-day training course based on the ACRM Cognitive Rehabilitation Manual: Translating Evidence-Based Recommendations into Practice.
Coming to the Orlando, FL region November 12 – 13, 2013 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort / Walt Disney World® Resort, FL, USA, the course will be held in conjunction with the 90th Annual ACRM Conference, Progress in Rehabilitation Research. Advance registration rates are available at http://www.ACRM.org/COG
The training encompasses all of the evidence-based strategies recommended in the scientific literature and operationalizes them into step-by-step guidelines for immediate use in clinical practice. Course content is designed to enable participants to confidently choose proven interventions for effective treatment of various cognition impairments.
Never before have research outcomes been so accessible for use in everyday clinical practice. Based on the Cognitive Rehabilitation Manual: Translating Evidence-Based Recommendations into Practice, this live introductory training operationalizes scientific recommendations into standards and step-by-step procedures that may confidently be used by rehabilitation professionals.
"Leaders of the interdisciplinary team taking care of people with cognitive disfunction need to know these strategies in order to give consistent care," says Tamara Bushnik, PhD, FACRM, ACRM President, Rusk Rehabilitation at NYU Langone Medical Center.
ACRM is proud to offer this unique training led by a team of original authors and contributors to the Manual. In order to identify the right treatment, providers must know all of the recommended strategies. This training teaches all recommended evidence-based interventions for impairments of executive functions, memory, attention, hemispatial neglect, and social communication and supports instruction with case examples. This is an outstanding opportunity to learn from leading researchers and clinicians in the field.
