Day 1 of this training is specific to your profession.
Kinesiologists (Charlotte Pion and Murielle Grangeon): This training day will allow you to better understand neurological pathologies and their functional consequences. Theoretical learning linked to practical training will be put forward in order to integrate the knowledge necessary to create a rehabilitation/training program adapted to a clientele presenting with neurological disorders. Assessments as well as the safety aspect of practice will be the essential points taught during the training day.
PRT (Joanie Roberge): This training day is designed for PRTs from all fields (private/public, housing, home support, private clinic, community, etc.) who want to develop their skills in the management of patients presenting with a neurological condition, whether for the rehabilitation of directly associated symptoms or to better manage them in other treatments where the neurological condition is an associated condition. At the end of this training, the PRT will be able to manage a person presenting with a neurological condition according to the standards of the Professional Code (Regulation 39.4) and Regulation 94M of the Ordre professionnel de la physiothérapie du Québec.
Physio and OT (Maureen Mac Mahon): This training day will allow you to explore the functional impacts of syndromes such as lateropulsion, hemineglect, impulsivity, and incomplete spinal cord injuries, and to adapt your approach in the presence of these syndromes. The importance of postural control, intensification of interventions, and service models based on diagnosis and recovery potential will be discussed.
Day 2 of this training is a multidisciplinary day: it will consist of multidisciplinary case studies (kinesiologists, physiotherapists, and physical rehabilitation therapists). In fact, the management of a client presenting with a neurological pathology is always done by several health professionals. Thus, this training day will give you the keys to develop teamwork. It will allow you to understand the assets of other health professionals, who can be a helpful and essential resource in your daily clinical practice. All teachers will be present.
This course follows Level 1A or Level 1B.
Upon completion of the Level 2 course, you will obtain your General Neuro-Academic Certification.
You can also continue on your path to obtain a Certification in Advanced Client-Specific Neurology by choosing to take one or more of the Level 3 courses. See here for a description of Level 3A, 3B, and 3C.
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.
- Understanding the impact of a neurological pathology on functional capacity.
- Assess the physical limitations and recovery potential of clients presenting with neurological conditions.
- Implement safe strategies to recover or compensate for these limitations during physical activity.
- Implement a rehabilitation/safe training program for this clientele.
- Make this program evolve according to changes in the pathology of its clientele.
- Work in a multidisciplinary team in order to offer the most comprehensive intervention to the clientele.
