We are delighted to introduce to you and inform you about an event in our country.
In attachement we are sending you an invitation for CI/CIMT therapy (Constraint-induced movement therapy) course.
Scientific evidence on the effectiveness of CI/CIMT therapy support the fact that this therapy improves the function of the upper and lower extremity on average through three weeks of continuous therapy implementation with adults and upper extremity with children.
The UAB CI Therapy Training Program is designed for Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants and Certified Occupational Therapist Assistants with a desire to develop CI therapy programs in their clinical setting.
This course will focus on CI therapy treatment for UE and LE rehabilitation for adults with chronic stroke, UE rehabilitation for children with hemiparesis due to cerebral palsy or other neurologic conditions.
The course is most appropriate for rehabilitation professionals in ambulatory settings (e.g., outpatient clinics, home health). While the training is primarily designed for clinicians, it may also be appropriate for scientists wishing to conduct CI therapy research. Participants should enter the program with a basic understanding and competency with physical rehabilitation strategies for patients recovering from neurologic injury.
Education CIMT therapy is organized in co-operation with the Academy for Developmental Rehabilitation and Center for Rehabilitation SILVER Zagreb (Croatia) in co-operation with University of Alabama at Birmingham) UAB Medicine.
Lectures and practical exercises will be held by Dr. David M. Morris, a member of the UAB CI Therapy Research Group, Associate Professor and Vice Chair in the UAB Division of Physical Therapy and Training Coordinator for the UAB CI Therapy Research Program.
We hope you will join this training course and to enrich your knowledge and experience.
