Posted 8/3/14

NORTH PROVIDENCE – Rehabilitation for multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease is the subject of the 21st annual Professional Development Conference sponsored by the Southern New England Rehabilitation Center on Sept. 12, 2014, at the Crowne Plaza Providence-Warwick. This annual conference provides a professional forum for discussing complex therapeutic issues in rehabilitation.

The conference is intended for physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, social workers, case managers, therapeutic recreation specialists, and others who work in a rehabilitation setting. Continuing education credits and hours are available.

“We are pleased to once again share the latest information on rehabilitative care with our colleagues from the region,” said Dr. Jon Mukand, Medical Director of the Southern New England Rehabilitation Center at Fatima Hospital. “The care of these patients can be challenging, and we are glad to have an impressive roster of presenters.”

The keynote speakers will address topics including: Cognitive changes associated with MS and PD; an update on multiple sclerosis; pharmacotherapy for MS and PD with a focus on new medications; and a neurologist’s perspective on rehabilitation for PD. Along with several educational workshops, there will also be a special guest luncheon speaker.
