People presenting with neurological conditions following a stroke are present throughout all practices: in rehabilitation, in hospitals, in private practice clinics, and in residential or home support settings.
This 2-day Level 1B training is designed for rehabilitation professionals working in neurology – specifically with stroke patients – in public or private settings and who want to increase their knowledge in neuropathology for this clientele. Participants will be able to develop their skills to intervene with a clientele presenting with a post-stroke neurological condition (stroke).
It is possible to obtain a Neuro-Academic Certification by completing Level 1 (A or B) and Level 2. See the description of Level 1A and Level 2. Once you have completed your certification, you will be able to continue your progress towards the various Level 3 courses offered.

The Neuro-Academic Certification is presented in collaboration with Neuro-Concept:
Using evidence-based data, Neuro-Concept has been applying efficient practices in the rehabilitation and re-education of neurological patients for several years. The approaches used combine conventional therapies with technical and technological innovations. All health professionals of the training academy are qualified and specialized in neurorehabilitation, in addition to being involved in research and teaching at the academic level. They have received advanced training that allows them to use a variety of approaches to meet the specific needs of people presenting with neurological disorders.
