The Certification Standards

This 16-day course is for therapists who want the distinction of being a Certified Neurorehabilitation Professional™.

 

Quality Continuing Education for Neurorehabilitation Professionals

Description

As physical therapy and occupational therapy evolve into doctoring professions, the continuing medical education should likewise be expected to meet a higher standard. This course teaches therapists how to think critically, deepen their knowledge and perform skillfully as a professional. Course content is informed by best evidence and best practice, with a focus on clinical application. This is accomplished by establishing a community environment of situated learning with patient attended clinical mentoring.

Ideal for:

  • Physical Therapists
  • Occupational Therapists

The NeuroPro standards of a neurorehabilitation professional include a thorough examination and differential diagnosis, the design and initiation of treatment, modulation and treatment progression, and the foundational sciences upon which these are based. All standards are centered on patient life roles and salient activities.

Participants completing this course of study will leave prepared with the content knowledge, decision making skills, and a transformed practice for meeting the clinical demands of a neurorehabilitation professional.
