Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

OT assessments can provide evidence that there is a functional change from pre- to post-external lumbar drain (ELD) in patients diagnosed with normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH). This topic will advance the professional development of the field of OT by providing additional research on the topic of NPH and ELD trials.
