What is the Neuroanatomy Refresher? What will I learn?
Lara Boyd, PT PhD, Claudia Krebs, PhD and Tara Klassen, PT PhD (candidate) will lead this interdisciplinary, continuing education course offered by the UBC Department of Physical Therapy, the ultimate learning experience for all clinicians interested in neuroscience and rehabilitation.
Day 1: Will be spent in the neuroanatomy lab (UBC or UNBC) reviewing the brain and spinal cord through interactive “hands-on” learning with cadaver specimens supported by dynamic on-line modules/videos and inter-disciplinary case studies.
Day 2: Will focus on the application of neuroanatomy to the clinician’s daily practice. Topics to be covered include; an overview of neuroimaging (CT and MRI), an introduction to devices that are currently being used to assess/influence brain activity and their applicability to rehabilitation, an overview of how neuroanatomy knowledge pertains to disease/injury prognosis, assessment and treatment planning, and differential diagnosis.
Who should attend this course?
Physical therapists, occupational therapists, physicians, nurses, speech-language pathologists, rehabilitation assistants, psychologists.
