This course will provide practitioners with practical knowledge and evidence based strategies to enhance competencies to facilitate return to work for those following stroke across the continuum of care. Practitioners will learn strategies to provide occupation-based evaluations, provide client-centered interventions that address performance skills, work, and the worker-workplace fit, and provide services that address the work-site. Additionally, practitioners will learn about the predictive factors of return to work following stroke, laws/regulations and resources that support return to work, and reimbursement mechanisms so as to better advocate for clients and navigate healthcare and state systems.
