Basic Neurological Assessment 2021

May 28 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

About the Course

Although this course is centered on Basic Neurological Assessment and therefore aims to provide it’s attendees with a greater depth of understanding of why and how specific assessment components are undertaken as part of the role of Occupational Therapists working with individuals with a neurological condition; it also aims to provide a practical understanding of what the assessment results represent and how they will link to Occupational Therapy intervention.

The course will cover:

– The basis of why Neurological Assessment is important in Occupational Therapy practice

– What components make up a thorough Occupational Therapy Initial Neurological Assessment

– How to implement an Initial Neurological Assessment including practical application of techniques

– The analysis of assessment findings, as they relate to Occupational Therapy practice

– How to link assessment findings to intervention

On completion of the course, attendees will be armed with the practical knowledge of how to complete a Basic Neurological Assessment and how to connect it to Occupational Therapy practice.

The course will include opportunities for observation and practice of assessment techniques and learning through a range of mediums including audio-visual, group discussion and in-vivo practice.

The course is aimed at Occupational Therapists who have either limited experience in Neurological Assessment or would like to develop greater confidence in this area.
