Pharmacology Landmines in Rehabilitation
June 23, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm MST
This essential one-day seminar will increase attendees’ comfort level with working around medication effects by presenting key information on pharmacology with many case studies from different practice settings. The course will cover the more popular and commonly encountered pharmacologics in rehab settings, including pain and cardiac medications, anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxers, and anxiolytics (anti-anxiety drugs), as well as vitamin and mineral supplements in relation to this topic. Side effects that can affect rehabilitation through altered coordination, balance, cognition, and swallowing will be specifically discussed, along with drug interaction risks. In addition, all attendees will receive a practical, quick-reference handout on pharmacology specifically developed for rehabilitation professionals. After completing this course, attendees will see improved results in their daily practice through their recognition of patients’ medication effects and ready knowledge of ways to offset them.
