SESSION #2

Understand how rehabilitation professionals handle complex ethical issues in patient care

ON-DEMAND Webinar

Participants will be challenged to identify and reflect on professional and business situations or relationships that may be more complex than at first realized and may be sources of ethical challenges or conflicts of interest. Participants will review some of the historical, socioeconomic and political underpinnings of the rehabilitation professions, to examine structural issues such as power and gender, that impact rehabilitation practice. Expect to look at potential conflicts related to financial relationships, compliance with state and federal laws, clinical reasoning and decision-making, and research. Attendees will be challenged to reflect on ethical courage.

SESSION #3

Understand why some clinicians may be missing a Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) diagnosis and what it means for your patients

ON-DEMAND Webinar

Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) is a neuropsychiatric disorder that falls between the borderlands of neurology and psychiatry. It is characterized by one or more symptoms of altered voluntary motor or sensory function that cannot be fully explained by another neurological or medical condition. Many clinicians often feel inadequate in making a diagnosis, understanding the illness, or discussing it with patients. This webinar will focus on the diagnosis of FND and the principles of what this diagnosis is and is not. It will discuss how to present the diagnosis to patients and the importance of diagnostic disclosure.
