In this recorded webinar, building on webinar 1, we discuss 3 vignettes on implementing a neurorehabilitation intervention and/or service in 3 different contexts: public hospital, paediatric population and private clinic.
Jeff & Brodwen present an evidenced based look at the pathomechanics of wrist and forearm trauma that leads to stiffness, pain, and dysfunction. They discuss practical solutions for prediction, prevention, and treatment.
Cardiac rehabilitation is a program designed for people with heart problems. It helps you improve your cardiovascular (heart) health through proper nutrition, exercise, and stress relief. Get your heart pumping and improve your health with this key component of cardiac rehab, exercise!
How do you prevent a second heart attack? Cardiac rehabilitation can help. And it’s not just for heart attack survivors. Studies have found that it helps men and women of all ages with mild, moderate, and severe heart problems
Cardiac rehabilitation is a holistic program designed to improve your heart health. This means it includes not only an exercise program, but also nutrition and stress relief education. Stress reduction is an important part of keeping your heart healthy. Learn twenty-five ways to reduce your stress!
It is easy to feel cooped up in your house or apartment during these times of uncertainty and worry. Exercising outside is a great way to workout and get some fresh air, but only if you feel comfortable and safe to do so.
Webinar 1 in this series reviews the evidence for neurorehabilitation with a particular focus on the impact of COVID19 on delivering evidence-based practice. We critically evaluate current strategies and techniques used in neurorehabilitation in relation to the neuroscience evidence and principles of neuroplasticity. Future directions in neurorehabilitation practice and research are explored.
Review the current evidence for neurorehabilitation.
Discuss the impact of COVID19 on service delivery.
Explore emerging evidence shaping rehabilitation.
WHO IS THIS WEBINAR SUITABLE FOR:
Therapists interested and working in neurorehabilitation in hospitals, clinics and working with NDIS participants in the home.
MEET THE SPEAKER:
Dr. Marlena Klaic
PhD Monash, MClinRehab, BOccTher(Hons)
Allied Health Research and Translation Leader, The Royal Melbourne Hospital
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of Melbourne
Marlena Klaic is an occupational therapist and researcher at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. She has more than 20 years of clinical experience working within the neurosciences field in all contexts including acute hospital, rehabilitation and home-based services.
In the last 10 years, Marlena has focused on health services research with a particular interest in the use of technology. She was a member of the team who established the first publicly funded technology driven upper limb rehabilitation service. Marlena prospectively identified barriers and enablers to the use of technology in clinical practice and developed a tailored approach to the training, resources and implementation of the clinic, which continues to function six years later.
Marlena is also a postdoctoral research fellow in implementation science. Her research focuses on assisting individuals, teams and organisations to develop innovations and interventions that can sustainably be used to address evidence-practice gaps.
