Assessments in Rehabilitation and Disability Management

In rehabilitation, assessments yield valuable data that can direct treatment or supply a rationale for case management decisions. This course gives you an understanding of various assessment types, how to choose a qualified assessment provider, and how assessment results affect case management.

We’ll explore a variety of commonly used assessment tools with the help of a multidisciplinary panel. You will improve your ability to communicate assessment goals, select treatment staff, navigate the ethical issues associated with assessment, and integrate assessments into a professional practice.

Courses will be available for individual registration until April 2023 only. After that time, all seats will be reserved for diploma students.
