Brain Fitness Certification

One of the major medical issues that affect patients is how to maintain memory and healthy brain function throughout their life.  The brain is affected by virtually every aspect of your patient’s lives, including moods, activities, sleep quality, stress levels, and diet.

This 4-part certification program will provide healthcare professionals with a solid foundation in the neurosciences and the application of neurological principles to the management of cognitive decline. The modules provide content related to neurological function including an introduction to how the brain learns and tools for memory enhancement, identifying toxins that lead to memory loss, exploring assessment instruments designed to measure cognitive decline and a discussion of emerging brain fitness therapies.

The Brain Fitness Certification offers the opportunity for professionals involved in health care delivery to begin the transition to understanding the broad spectrum of issues involved cognitive decline and neurological disease. For practitioners that have an interest in enhancing healthcare delivery, this program provides the necessary education to successfully understand and incorporate neurological principles into patient care.

This module outlines the role of electrophysiology for brain health within a clinical practice.  Electrophysiology has a very important role in ensuring accurate clinical diagnoses. Many neurological diseases cause symptoms that manifest far from the injured or deceased tissues. Locating and treating all affected areas of the body is essential for proper patient care. Electrophysiology allows for the investigation of abnormal electrical signals in the body’s tissues. It provides quantitative data to clinicians, supporting diagnostic processes and evaluating treatment success.
