On Monday, June 23rd, The Execu|Search Group’s Bridge Travel Healthcare staffing division is hosting a free neuroscience review course for occupational therapists. The 120-minute workshop will be led by Marianne Mortera, PHD, OTR/L, an occupational therapy educator with 25 years of experience teaching at schools such as New York University and Columbia University.
Marianne’s presentation will help participants:
- Review the theoretical concepts from neuroscience and neuropsychology, highlighting key structures and functions of the human nervous system;
- Identify what specific neuroscience concepts are used as the bases for occupational therapy frames of reference, specifically the assessment of neurological dysfunction;
- Identify the typical sequelae or disease processes of various neurological conditions addressed by occupational therapists.
“As part of our continuing efforts to ensure our therapists have the foundation they need to be successful in the field, this is the third in a series of educational workshops we are offering,” explains Michelle Callahan, a Staffing Manager within Bridge Travel Healthcare who organized the workshop. “Since our therapists work in a variety of practice settings, our goal is to offer many in-service presentations that are relevant to different areas of occupational therapy.”
The neuroscience review course will be held on Monday, June 23rd from 6:00pm-8:30pm at:
620 8th Avenue, 15th floor
New York, NY 10018
