Challenges and Opportunities Using the NDT Framework for Patients with Severe Involvement
2 Continuing Education Credit(s) Available
In today’s healthcare environment, many caregivers are challenged to “do more with less.” Patients presenting for rehabilitation services are sicker and expected to complete services and return home more quickly than in years past, and healthcare facilities are challenged to show excellent outcomes in shorter amounts of time. This is especially difficult when evidence suggests that rest is an important factor in the recovery of those with neuropathology (1). Today’s clinicians need to be goal directed, and knowledgeable about the various sequelae that follow many different neurological diagnoses. In the case of the patient who is severely involved, this is exceptionally challenging.
