SPINAL CORD INJURY
- COMING SOON: Implementation of Pressure Injury Prevention Best Practices with guest speakers, Carol Scovil, PhD and Dalton Wolfe, PhD
Knowledge implementation is an important step to incorporate throughout the research process. This webinar will provide learners an opportunity to engage in an interactive presntation from authors of “Scovil et al. Implementation of Pressure Injury Prevention Best Practices Across 6 Canadian Rehabilitation Sites: Results From the Spinal Cord Injury Knowledge Mobilization Network. Archives of physical medicine and rehabilitation. 2019 Feb 1;100(2):327-35,” on practical strategies of using active implementation frameworks to implement best practices in rehabilitation setting. Speakers will discuss barriers and facilitators to successful implementations. Indicators for evaluating successful implementation will be presented.
- Integrated Knowledge Translation and Consumer Engagement: A Primer for Rehabilitation Researchers and Clinicians with Guest Speaker, John Chernesky
Rehabilitation researchers are increasingly encouraged to involve stakeholders in their efforts, to enhance the validity and usefulness of their work. Too often, however, stakeholders are involved at only a superficial level, providing little opportunity for them to truly influence the quality and relevance of the research in which they are involved. This presentation will enhance learners’ understanding of the concept and practical application of Integrated Knowledge Translation and Consumer Engagement. The work of the Praxis Spinal Cord Institute (formerly, Rick Hansen Institute)’s Consumer Program will be discussed, as well as the role and activities of the North American Spinal Cord Injury Consortium. Learners will also be connected with resources they can use for guidance when including people with lived experience of SCI in their work. While the focus of this presentation will be on SCI-related research, the principles described have broad applicability to other disability communities.
- An Overview of Rehabilitation With Powered Exoskeletons for Over Ground Walking Following Spinal Cord Injury with Guest Speakers, Jaynie Yang, PT, PhD and Caitlin Hurd, PT, MSc
Participants will learn about how exoskeletons can be incorporated into the rehabilitation of people living with SCI.
- Brain-Computer Interface Signaling and Control Webinar with Samuel Clanton, MD, PhD
Participants will learn about the types of signals that different types of brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) record. Dr. Clanton will discuss how neural signals are transformed into machine commands using BCIs and how differences between what is recorded by different BCI interfaces translates into differences in their potential utility.
- Electrical Stimulation From Exercise to Locomotion with Ashraf S. Gorgey, MPT, PhD, FACSM, FACRM
COMING SOON: Just the Way You Are: Intimacy and Sex After Stroke with Alexandra L. Terrill, PhD and Paige Salinas, LCSW, CBIS
This Stroke ISIG Virtual Happy Hour webinar, hosted by the Stroke ISIG Transitions & Continuity Task Force, will discuss issues pertinent to intimacy and sexuality after a stroke. In particular, it will focus on strategies for addressing concerns that are important in the recovery of the stroke survivor.
- A Paradigm Shift: Rehabilitation Robotics, Cognitive Skills Training and Transfer to Function with Susan Fasoli, ScD OTR/L
In this webinar, Dr. Fasoli will compare and contrast motor learning principles that guide conventional and robot-assisted therapy protocols. Participants will learn to apply a cognitive treatment approach to enhance transfer of recovered motor skills to daily functional use of the paretic upper limb.
