Lara Boyd PT PhD, Claudia Krebs PhD and Tara Klassen PT PhD (cand.) will lead this inter-disciplinary, continuing education course offered by the UBC Department of Physical Therapy, the ultimate learning experience for all clinicians interested in neuroscience and rehabilitation.
What will I learn?
Day 1: Will be spent in 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.
