Healthcare moves at the speed of light. Length of stay is rapidly decreasing for both the acute care and inpatient rehabilitation settings. Practitioners are stressed to find ways to gather all the needed information in a quick and concise matter in order to create the most comprehensive plan of care. With the high rate of visual defects and their impact on function noted for individuals post-stroke, ABI, TBI and other neurological conditions; it is imperative that clinicians can screen and treat individuals with neurological visual deficits despite time crunches.

This presentation will address realistic screening and treatments in a fast-paced environment while staying true to functional performance and independence-focused outcomes.
