Description: Executive functions direct and organize cognitive and emotional processes, which enable individuals to regulate their behavior and attain their goals (Ready, et. al, 2001).  Impairments in executive functions often result in diminished ability to set and attain realistic goals due to poor self monitoring and evaluation of performance.  Individuals with executive dysfunction exhibit poor problem solving and ability to change behavior in order to obtain best possible outcomes and solutions.  Rehabilitation professionals can manage executive functions to provide patients with an optimal rehabilitation course and to facilitate accurate self appraisal and attainment of goals.  This course will assist allied health and nursing professionals with identifying impairments in executive functions and implementing strategies to allow for best possible outcomes in rehabilitation.

Audience: Physical Therapists, Physical Therapy Assistants, Occupational Therapists, and Occupational Therapy Assistants, Speech-Language Pathologists, Case Managers and Nurses
