Neuroanatomy is admittedly complex and overwhelming. Clinicians working in rehabilitation are faced with growing caseloads, diminished resources/reimbursement, and increasingly medically complex patients with the expectation of improving outcomes and reducing length of stay. Honing one’s knowledge of clinically-relevant neuroanatomy and neuropathology can predict dysfunction and intuitively create a scaffold for assessment and treatment even before meeting the patient. Predetermining potential deficits leads to a more tightly defined diagnostic battery and expedites treatment formulation. By deducing the patient’s experience, the clinician can also prepare for behavioral barriers to engagement and understand the healing process with greater compassion.
In this recording, you will learn intermediate level neurophysiology as it relates to cognitive-linguistic skills and behavioral control, as well as explore mindfulness techniques for stress reduction. The overlying foci of the recording are to arm treating professionals with an improved clinical eye, predicting dysfunction, and expedite the pathway to treatment. Recording content will also include patient focused educational materials for stroke and traumatic brain injury ready to be utilized by treating practitioners.
This online program is worth 5.75 hours CPD.

Jerome Quellier, MS, CCC-SLP, is a clinical specialist in traumatic brain injury and communication disorders at a 450+ bed Level 1 Trauma hospital in Saint Paul, MN with almost 25 years of acute, residential, and outpatient rehabilitation experience. During his tenure at the hospital he has focused on neuro-based diagnostics and intervention for dysphagia, cognitive-linguistic deficits, head and neck cancer management, patient advocacy, and curriculum development. Mr. Quellier has made a career-long study of the intricacies of neurology, completed advanced training in brain dissection at Marquette University, actively engages in staff development training, and recently joined a surgery team in preserving language function during tumor resections.
In addition to his clinical practice, he has previously held a faculty position at the University of Minnesota Duluth teaching graduate level coursework, and taught undergraduate workshops as adjunct faculty at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire. Mr. Quellier is excited to bring this topic to the forefront after working with the interdisciplinary team’s challenges in understanding the “what and why” of traumatic brain injury, stroke, neurodegenerative diseases and tumor resections as they apply to behavioral changes. He graduated Cum Laude with his bachelor’s degree and graduate degree from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire.
