The Comprehensive Neurorehabilitation Update
Cutting-edge strategies, updates, and best practices for clinicians who provide care for patients with CNS trauma and neurological diseases
Patients with stroke, TBI, SCI, and degenerative neurological diseases face significant disruption to so many facets of their lives, and clinicians are left with so many treatment dimensions to consider, that rehabilitation is never simple. These challenges are compounded by the fact that rehabilitation approaches are now in a period of rapid expansion. It’s difficult to stay current with, choose, and use the best options for neurorehabilitation—yet this is key to optimizing patient outcomes.
It’s with these challenges in mind that we present NeuroRehabilitation 2020. Many of the country’s most experienced and committed neurorehabilitation experts will present cutting-edge clinical interventions, the latest findings, practical education, and hands-on methods to further your expertise in guiding your patients to their maximum level of function.
Clinicians who provide care for patients with CNS trauma and neurological diseases can rely on this new update for proven, state-of-the-art practices and take-home tools to heighten your success in effectively and efficiently helping your patients gain the skills that will improve their health and quality of life.
