Online Registration 4:45 PM. Program 5:00 - 8:15 PM.
Course Description: This introductory level course will cover two significant issues in the rehabilitation setting, namely somatic symptom disorders with a specific focus on functional neurologic disorder, and psychological conditions/symptoms that are either pre-existing or newly emergent in patients, including medications used to treat these conditions. A combination of lecture, video and clinical presentations will be used to improve practitioner’s understanding of psychological comorbidities and the impact it will have on patient participation and rehabilitation interventions.
The course will explore the impact of how various factors, patient lifestyle and patient goals will impact their rehabilitation and specific interventions. In addition, this course will closely look at pharmacological interventions, and discuss the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach to communication and behavior.
Learning Objectives: At the completion of this course the participants will be able to:
1. Discuss the causes, characteristics, and symptoms of Functional Neurologic Disorder (FND).
