VERSAILLES – Mallory Pleiman, occupational therapist at Versailles Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center, recently completed the Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist (CSRS) Program in Louisville, Ky. Implemented in partnership with the American Stroke Association, the CSRS is the field’s only stroke certification for occupational and physical therapists.
The advanced training enables Pleiman to become a preeminent stroke clinician through a rigorous set of courses, culminating in a written examination and a nationally recognized credential. The program consists of a four-tiered, seminar-based stroke educational program. Each CSRS Seminar is 8 hours. Successive seminars build on knowledge gained in previous courses, with the series culminating in an online test. Successful test completion with a score of 80 percent or above grants the CSRS designation.
“I’m excited to share the benefits of my training in stroke rehabilitation with our patients and residents at Versailles Rehab,” commented Pleiman, who has been with Versailles Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center since 2014.
Dr. Stephen Winner, Director of Rehab at Versailles Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center, added “Mallory strives to continually improve her level of expertise and knowledge.
