Dr. Natalie Douglas

 

Dr. Natalie Douglas is a master clinician/clinical researcher, who is a kind, knowledgeable, and an engaging speaker. This full day seminar will provide an overview of person-centered care principles for adults with acquired neurogenic disorders. Through small group discussions, attendees will share their perspectives on implementing person-centered care. Several cases, including an individual with traumatic brain injury, an individual with fronto-temporal dementia, and an individual with fluent aphasia will be used to highlight our role in identifying the goals and values of individuals with acquired cognitive-communication impairments and how to develop person-centered treatment plans. Attendees will also explore barriers and facilitators to implementing such treatment plans in the context of the current healthcare environment and demands for productivity. Further, attendees will discuss the relationship between person-centered care and evidence-based practice. Using information derived from the day's content and discussion-based interactions, attendees will develop their own person-centered intervention plan for an individual with an acquired language or cognitive-communication disorder.
