Cognition, Neurological Rehabilitation, Physical Therapy
Working with patients with cognitive impairments can be difficult for Physical Therapists and PT Assistants often leading to limitations in treatment planning. It is important for PTs and PTAs to understand the underlying mechanisms involved in normal cognitive processing as well as understanding how different pathologies can impact that processing. This understanding can lead to more refined and efficacious treatment plans and better interdisciplinary collaboration. This course will begin with exploring the building blocks of cognition and how it is tested. And will then progress to discussing neuroanatomical correlates of cognition and common pathologies. Current literature surrounding cognition and how it could be incorporated and enhanced within your physical therapy practice setting will then be discussed.Expand summary
