Summary:

Executive function impairment may result from a variety of medical conditions, including traumatic brain injury, stroke, and dementia. The ability of patients to achieve goals, including rehabilitation goals, may be compromised by executive function impairment. Carrying out activities of daily living, ambulation, and even eating can be made more difficult by problems with initiation, inhibition, judgment, and other aspects of executive function. Difficulty complying with medication schedules may be one of the most serious consequences of executive function deficits. Formal and informal assessments are used by different disciplines to challenge various components of executive function, including mental flexibility, initiation, inhibition, judgment, abstract reasoning, and concrete reasoning.

Objectives:

The goal of this executive function impairment interprofessional continuing education course is to provide an overview of the roles and interactions among a nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist, and speech-language pathologist as they address the complex rehabilitation and medical needs of an older adult who has experienced neurological dysfunction. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe the distinct and interactive roles of nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists who work in concert to address the immediate and long-term needs of an adult patient with executive function impairment.
  • Articulate typical assessment and intervention approaches across the rehabilitation phases of treating adult patients who experience executive function impairment due to brain damage resulting from traumatic brain injury, stroke, dementia, or other neurological conditions.
  • Explain how the roles and functions of an interdisciplinary healthcare team complement one another, requiring interprofessional communication and coordination of services.
