Vision Assessment of ABI Patients - January, OhioHealth Doctors Hospital, Friday, 25. January 2019

Vision Assessment of Acquired-Brain Injury Patients for Non-Optometric Rehabilitation Providers
January 25 (1 PM - 5 PM) and January 26 (8 AM- 4:30 PM)
11 PT/OT/SLP CEU's will be provided
Presented by Dr. Steven J. Curtis, O.D., FCOVD, FNORA
This course will provide comprehensive understanding of the critical link between vision and the overall rehabilitation process of acquired brain injury patients. Attendees will participate in lectures and workshops. Lectures will include foundational knowledge essential for identification of vision deficits, both functional and perceptual. Workshops will provide hands-on experience with evidence-based vision tests for immediate utilization in the clinic setting.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: at the conclusion of this course, attendees will be able to:
1)      Describe the difference between structure-based and function-based eye care and how these differences relate to their patient care.
2)      Identify vision deficits, functional and perceptual, through patient history and observation.
3)      Administer a standardized battery of evidence-based vision tests learned and practiced in the workshops.
4)      Determine if a patient’s rehabilitation process requires visual management
5)      Understand and integrate vision perception with motor function during rehabilitation.
