Description

Dual task interventions can have an immediate positive effect on function and fall risk in patients with Parkinson’s. But outdated, conflicting research has left many clinicians unsure about how to incorporate it effectively in therapy sessions.

Based on the latest research, this recording will guide you through a cutting-edge, evidence-based framework for applying dual task interventions with Parkinson’s. Learn how to identify appropriate treatment candidates and explore interdisciplinary best practices for applying dual task/multitask treatments with patients in any practice setting.

Handouts

Outline

  • Brief review of the medical and neurological aspects with a focus on the impact within the domains of rehab disciplines and the impacts of these deficits on dual task performance.
  • Dual cognitive and motor task training: Definition and current peer-reviewed evidence. 
  • How to add in Cognitive-Physical challenges: Practical examples with case studies in clinical practice for gait training, amplitude-based therapy as well as non-traditional therapies such boxing & dance. 
  • Integration of voice into motor activities as a transdisciplinary tool for “priming” patients.
  • A framework for practice with a focus upon PD-specific safety issues.
