Promoting Recovery at the Bedside – A Virtual NDT Workshop with Karen Guha, PT
Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT) is a treatment approach that therapists/health care practitioners use to promote recovery in an individual who has suffered a neurological injury. The research indicates that individuals who suffer from a neurological injury need a lot of practice of their more involved side to drive neuroplasticity. Whenever possible, it is critical that our interactions with our patients are therapeutic and encourage recovery.
This one-day virtual workshop will allow members of the health care team to problem solve various functional activities at the bedside and explore ways to assist our patients perform these activities in a more therapeutic way. It will focus on ways to engage the patient so that they are actively participating and promoting use of the more involved side. This workshop is designed to meet the needs of nursing and other allied staff. The workshop will contain didactic information, videos, and lab practice with live, virtual feedback from the instructor. It is recommended that you have a lab partner available (colleague, friend or family member), so that you may practice during the lab sessions
Who should attend? Nurses, PSWs and other stroke care providers who have not previously taken an NDT course.
