Post-stroke Spasticity Diagnosis and Management—A Case-based CME Initiative

Post-stroke Spasticity Diagnosis and Management—A Case-based CME Initiative
This accredited grand rounds activity aims to educate learners on the diagnosis, treatment and management of post-stroke spasticity through real-life scenarios they may encounter in their clinical settings. The program will provide learners with current evidence on accurate assessment of spasticity with appropriate treatment and management through a series of case vignettes.

 

Post-stroke Spasticity: An Update on Diagnosis and Treatment Research

Post-stroke Spasticity: An Update on Diagnosis and Treatment Research is a non-accredited program that educates the professional spasticity management team on the latest evidence related to accurate assessment of spasticity with appropriate treatment. This program is for informational purposes only.

 

Post-stroke Spasticity Ask the Experts

Post-stroke Spasticity Ask the Experts captures a previously recorded clinical Q&A regarding spasticity with rehabilitation specialists. This program is for informational purposes only.
