One in 8 Americans ages 65 or older has a neurocognitive disorder, and this number is predicted to rise rapidly. Occupational therapists bring a unique focus on function to a global effort to understand the brain and address NCDs. The linkages among brain structures, processes, and function is reflected in this Self-Paced Clinical Course. After completing this SPCC, readers will:

 

·       Recognize the neurological underpinnings, cognitive and behavioral symptoms, and progression of several major types of neurocognitive disorders;

·       Delineate the psychosocial, emotional, and occupational effects of neurocognitive disorders;

·       Recognize the critical role of the primary caregiver and family in the care for a person with neurocognitive disorder;

·      Identify the translational concepts guiding implementation of evidence-based therapeutic interventions for clients with neurocognitive disorder and their family caregivers;

·       Identify the components of a comprehensive functional evaluation for clients with neurocognitive disorder and their family caregivers;

·      Recognize the factors affecting quality of life for clients with neurocognitive disorder and their family caregivers;

·       Recognize the typical effect of neurocognitive disorders on participation in educa­tion, work, play, leisure, social participation, activities of daily living (ADL), and instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) performance areas; and,

·       Delineate the characteristics and benefits of community-based occupational therapy services for clients with neurocognitive disorder and their families.

 

Features include self-checks, a glossary, and an extended case study in which a client with NCD is followed through intervention. They are designed to assist readers and course learners in further developing their clinical compe­tency in working with people with mild and major NCD.
