Occupation Based Treatments for Functional Cognition in Adults With ABI

Green Clock Hours: 1.25

An estimated 2.4 million children and adults in the United States sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and another 795,000 individuals sustain an acquired brain injury (ABI) from non-traumatic causes each year. Cognitive impairment is a common sequela in acquired brain injury, affecting more than 30 % of all survivors. There is evidence that cognitive function may predict rehabilitation outcomes after acquired brain injury and, more importantly, may be modified through targeted interventions and lead to improved rehabilitation outcomes. Recently the idea of functional cognition, a concept that merges cognitive abilities with ADL/IADL task completion, has emerged in the literature changing the way we view cognitive rehabilitation. This course focuses on educating therapists on how to develop effective, occupation-based treatment sessions using evidence-based concepts to improve functional outcomes. Evidence supporting these interventions and how to effectively implement this evidence into practice will also be included to challenge therapists to examine current treatment practices.
