The seminar is open to all NDT trained PTs and OTs  who have completed the Certificate Course in the Management of Adults with Stroke and Brain Injury.

Examination of the Human Movement System is always a challenge because of its inherent complexity.  It can be a daunting task in severely injured, medically complex patients as well as in high functioning, community dwelling patients.  Every NDT intervention is preceded by examination; incomplete or faulty examination results may lead to less effective interventions and diminished outcomes.  Subsequently, every NDT intervention requires continuous re-examination as patient responses and actions are the next ‘clues’ to understanding individual movement systems.

In this course, the International Classification of Function will provide the framework of examination of the Human Movement System. Broad, general observations of a patient moving to perform salient tasks will be distilled into specific hypotheses.  The iterative process of hypothesis formation and testing to find and name specific impairments will be the focus of the course.  Selection of standardized measurement and testing instruments will be discussed and used to set baseline measures of patient performance. At the conclusion of the course, the therapist will be able to perform an examination like a PRO, producing baseline measures, anticipated outcomes, and an accurate impairment list to begin effective interventions.
