44th Annual Interdisciplinary Spinal Cord Injury/Disease Course: A Focus on Neuromodulation
Virtual Course, April 8-9, 2021
Renowned faculty speaking and moderating the two-day course represent a collection of the most distinguished, practicing researchers and therapists in the field of study. Groundbreaking research will be presented, including the functional restoration of SCI patients through invasive and noninvasive stimulation that targets spinal cord combined with rehabilitation training.
Practitioners can build better therapeutic interventions when clinical decision-making and current research is at the forefront of evidence-based care. This innovative, interdisciplinary online course focuses on the resources and strategies that allow individuals with SCI/D to achieve their highest quality of life through methods of neuromodulation. Over two days, this course will integrate interactive lectures, a workshop, case and panel discussion in order to facilitate skill-building opportunities. The course focuses on neuromodulation and its use in treatment with restoration of motor control in individuals with SCI/D. The course will review the focus on the mechanisms driving these invasive and noninvasive techniques and translate into clinical recovery for injuries in the spinal cord. The application of clinical assessment of patients with SCI and neuromodulation in practice via functional electrical stimulation, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and implanted devices will be reviewed. Day 2 will tap into the challenge of quality of life issues of living with a SCI/D such as pregnancy and sexuality, as well as promotion of disability as a critical element in medicine
Live Streaming, June 16-18, 2021
Taught by the leading clinical rehabilitation faculty of Harvard Medical School and Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, this live distance learning CME program provides the latest best practices to improve outcomes for patients who have had a TBI, SCI, stroke, brain tumor, or COVID-19, and to optimize care for patients with degenerative neurological disease.
COVID-19: The Neurorehabilitation Perspective
Editors from the WFNR in collaboration with “Frontiers in Neurology” launched a collection of articles (Research Topic) titled: COVID-19: The Neurorehabilitation Perspective.
The idea is to collect high-level manuscripts from international experts, who will tackle the issue from different points of view, with the main aim to create a continuously accumulating e-Book compilation. Manuscript contributions can be of different formats (for details see the applicable author guidelines published by Frontiers). During 2020 a waiver policy by Frontiers is in act that grants publication free of charge to authors for those manuscripts that were enlisted and approved as abstracts.
Research groups interested to submit their research reports and all health care professionals in neurorehabilitation teams who want to keep them informed about the most recent COVID-19 neurorehabilitation research are invited to visit the Project Website
