Remember when you took neuro anatomy in college? Loads of interesting stuff, totally new concepts and vast arrays of miniscule details to attempt to remember. And when you first took it, you didn’t yet have the clinical context or experience to make any sense out of it. Have you ever wished, that knowing what you know now, you could go back to therapy school and take that course again? Here’s your chance. A comprehensive review of clinically oriented neuro anatomy. You don’t have to invest a semester. We’ll do it in two days – over the weekend!
This course is a comprehensive review of the neuroanatomical foundations of therapeutic practice. Every element of the course is presented with emphasis on the clinical relevance of each neuroanatomical pathway. New information is shared regarding atypical neural symptom patterns resulting from autonomic involvement. Case study examples are presented throughout to illustrate how neuroanatomical structure links with clinical presentations and treatment responses.
This course is targeted for OTs, PTs, COTAs, PTAs, and nurses.
