UHN presents: Sensory Rehabilitation following Stroke

UHN presents Sensory Rehabilitation following Stroke: Neuroscience Foundations, New Evidence and Application to Clinical Practice


October 15-16, 2018
Toronto

Loss of body sensations is common post-stroke with negative impact on exploration of the environment, hand function and activity participation. In this workshop Dr Carey will present an evidence based approach to sensory rehabilitation (http://youtu.be/G9V3I30pn68). The nature of loss, neuroimaging outcomes, and impact on function will be reviewed. New quantitative sensory measures will be presented and neuroscience foundations of recovery discussed. Approaches to sensory retraining will be critically appraised. A novel, evidence-based approach to sensory discrimination training that is founded on neuroscience and perceptual learning will be presented with evidence from a randomised controlled trial. Application of principles of training to occupation-based, client-centred tasks and preliminary evidence of effectiveness of this approach will also be presented. Participants will have an opportunity to apply the assessment and training approaches in the context of clinical case scenarios. Clinical problem solving will be facilitated by group discussion and small group work.
