The presenter utilizes Functional Upper Extremity Levels (FUEL) and creative task grading to demonstrate a balance in approaches. It provides practical ways to incorporate evidence-based practices such as mental practice, CIMT, bilateral arm therapy, neuromuscular reeducation, and more. In this increasingly fast-paced rehabilitation world, it is important to find efficient treatment plans and remain evidence-based; by closely examining the client factors and utilizing the most evidence-based practice, we can provide our clients with the best strategies and outcomes.
