Independent and safe mobility are not only related to an individual’s neuromuscular status, but are influenced by cognitive factors such as attention, memory, processing speed and executive functioning. Physical therapists in all treatment settings encounter individuals with cognitive dysfunction, yet cognition is not always considered in the development and implementation of treatment plans. Evidence-based treatments can be implemented to help individuals with cognitive deficits with both the physical and psychological factors that inform movement, allowing them to maximize success.

After this 60-minute webinar you will be able to:
  • Identify signs of cognitive dysfunction based on patient behavioral and functional presentation
  • Integrate knowledge of cognitive deficits into physical therapy prognosis, goal setting, and interventions for individuals with a variety of medical conditions
  • Develop strategies and treatment interventions to maximize outcomes related to functional mobility and cognitive deficits
