Event description
Sensory Rehabilitation following Stroke: Neuroscience Foundations, New Evidence and Application to Clinical Practice.

About this Event

This two-day workshop will be presented by Professor Leeanne Carey, world leading neuroscientist and therapist in stroke rehabilitation and recovery research, together with Brendon Haslam and Yvonne Mak-Yuen, clinical leaders in SENSe Assess and SENSe Therapy.

By attending this workshop you will:

  • Appreciate the nature of sensory loss following stroke and its functional impact.
  • Critically evaluate current assessment methods and gain experience in new standardised assessments.*
  • Critically evaluate methods of treating sensory loss relative to current principles of neuroscience.
  • Apply newly researched sensory retraining methods to a range of sensory stimuli and tasks.*
  • Apply evidence-based principles of sensory retraining in the context of functional activities.*
  • Adopt an evidence-based approach to assessment and rehabilitation of sensory loss following stroke.

* Opportunities for hands on training in evidence-based SENSe Assess & SENSe Therapy

Pre-reading notes will be sent to registrants

Opportunity for post-workshop credentialing.

Limited places available to ensure 'hands-on’ experience.

Leeanne Carey is a Professor of Occupational Therapy at La Trobe University and founding head of the Neurorehabilitation and Recovery Research Group at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health. Her research focuses on development of approaches to rehabilitation that are founded on theories of neuroplasticity and learning, and empirically tested for clinical and neuroanatomical outcomes using functional neuroimaging techniques. An important focus has been to translate these discoveries into clinical practice and better outcomes for people who experience stroke.
