Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Neurology Volume 04, Issue 02: Rehabilitation after Stroke.

The goal of this program is to improve the rehabilitation of patients who have suffered strokes. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Educate patients about the mechanism, benefits, and side effects of botulinum toxin (BTX) when used for treatment of spasticity.
2. Select appropriate patients for use of BTX injection in conjunction with physical therapy to treat spasticity of the upper extremities after stroke.
3. Summarize functional objectives and goals of managing spasticity with BTX.
4. Elaborate on advances in understanding of brain plasticity and how they affect the development of robotic therapy for rehabilitation of the extremities after stroke.
5. Assess evidence supporting the benefits of robot-assisted therapy in producing long-lasting gains in movement that are potentially transferable to untrained tasks.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
