FRIDAY 3rd May, 2024 – 9:00 – 16:30
Presented by Carlo Divita.
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:
1 – The basis of why Neurological Assessment is important in Occupational Therapy practice
2 – What components make up a thorough Occupational Therapy Initial Neurological Assessment
3 – How to implement an Initial Neurological Assessment including practical application of techniques
4 – The analysis of assessment findings, as they relate to Occupational Therapy practice
5 – 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.
