REHAB 541 - The Stroke Survivor: Assessment and Rehabilitation across the Continuum of Care

★ 3 (fi 15) (either term or Spring/Summer, 3-0-0) The goal of this course is to integrate and apply advanced knowledge from REHAB 540 into clinical practice. Using a discovery learning/case study approach, students will conduct an evidence-based review of the literature and work as an interdisciplinary team to apply best practice information to a variety of care contexts. Students will work collaboratively on case studies that offer practical opportunities to apply assessment and treatment principles. Additionally, the course will explore team functioning and dynamics within and across the various stroke rehabilitation settings with students having an opportunity to apply learning to specific professional areas of practice. Prerequisite: REHAB 540.
