Faculty Reviews: Treatment Strategies in the Acute Care of Stroke Survivors (AC)
"I cannot begin to express my adulation in your efforts towards putting together this fine and much needed multimedia resource on acute neurological rehabilitation—not only for practicing therapists and their continuing education needs, but also for supplementation to entry-level curriculum at the graduate medical education level as we incorporate your university and faculty editions into the clinical neurological courses of our doctorate in physical therapy program."

Assistant Professor, Hardin-Simmons University
“I think Treatment Strategies in Acute Care is a fabulous resource and since we use it in 3 different courses, the students really feel like they get their money’s worth.
We use it in our first Patient Care course to introduce the students to ICU and some bed mobility/transfer techniques. We use it in Cardio/Pulmonary for the section on suctioning and lines and tubes. And then we use it primarily in our Neuro I course which is designed to teach the students assessment and intervention of the acute neuro patient. So, we don’t just use it to teach interventions for patients with CVA, but a multitude of lessons.”

“I am currently teaching the Geriatrics Intervention and Conditions courses and have been showing your wonderful DVDs to give our students an idea of what to look for when working with stroke patients.
Last summer the university purchased both of your programs [AC and FTI] for me and I have been using them to reinforce handling techniques that we may cover in the interventions course.
I have received very positive feedback from all of my students both from 2008 and current students in my classes. The students enjoy the videos because they are watching evaluations and treatments with real patients in both the acute and clinical settings.
These videos have been especially helpful to some of the students who have not had the opportunity to work with stoke patients in their fieldwork as yet.
We just started to view this week the treatment sessions in the clinic setting and my students were very interested to watch how you used evaluation and clinical reasoning in your treatment sessions. In these sessions they were able to actually see how a therapist uses their understanding of a condition (stroke) and puts the learned concepts in to an actual treatment.”

“I did a pilot with our students right before they went out on fulltime clinical rotations. They loved the video scenarios with the live patients and the therapists. The students felt like they were there and the therapist was speaking to them.
As an instructor I appreciated how the real life scenarios were real. The PT had to change up the plan during the session...that always happens! But in some other videos those little details are not included. I also liked the questions that accompanied the videos, it helped keep the students attention focused on what was important.
Overall, the students and I rated the entire production as excellent and a great tool for the classroom learning experience.”

“The manual is extremely organized and easy to follow. I have decided to use Treatment Strategies in the Acute Care of Stroke Survivors for a Rehab Conditions class that I teach. I am excited about using your series, as it brings the clinic into the classroom!”
