Ebrain e-learning programme is a gold standard in interactive online learning for professionals in neurosciences. This exciting web-based learning resource is designed to support training and continuous professional development for clinical neuroscience trainees, consultants and non-specialists.
Members of the EAN have free access to this resource, www.ebrainJNC.com. Also, all participants of the 1st EAN Congress have free access for three months (for more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org). eBrain is pleased to offer approximately 100 webcasts recorded at the 1st EAN Congress, Berlin 2015.
Patients with chronic conditions account for nearly 80% of health care costs. Neurological damage accounts for 40% of people severely disabled and who require daily help. The majority of patients can then benefit from delivery of the multi-dimensional process termed rehabilitation by skilled rehabilitation teams. Within the last decade, there was a dramatic change in paradigms in rehabilitation which is reflected in the ebrain module “Neuro-rehabilitation and Spinal Injury Rehabilitation”, edited by Ruth Kent and Steven Laureys.
Neuro-rehabilitation aims to facilitate functional restoration and adaptation, following loss of psychological function or anatomical structure. Rehabilitation incorporates a post-diagnostic goal focused on learning and problem-solving process using all available means, including therapy approaches, treatment modalities, medical and non-medical treatments, to minimize and prevent the consequences of a disease and facilitate adaptation to change.
The module on neuro-rehabilitation consist of 28 sessions each lasting 20 minutes. The reader can find comprehensive information regarding history taking and examination in complex neurological disability, clinical gait analysis in rehabilitation medicine, assessment of bladder and bowel problems in multiple sclerosis, diagnosis and management of cognitive functioning after stroke, management of spasticity, pain in multiple sclerosis and after stroke, management of speech, language problems, swallowing disorders and many other issues.
