DESCRIPTION

Designed for rehabilitation professionals who want to elevate their clinic skill set in the management of older adults.  The size of this population is growing rapidly, unfortunately the desire to manage them with cutting edge evidence guided treatment has lagged well behind.  Too often we see our older adults getting under treated, both with exercise and manual therapy, apparently as a consequence of both fear and ignorance.

This course is designed to take a deep dive into exploring misconceptions and laying out a clear current best evidence pathway to enable our older adults to not only survive but to thrive.  A special emphasis is placed on progressive functional fitness in this population.

Target Audience: Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, University Faculty

This course is approved for 16 CEU's. If you have any questions regarding continuing education units, check out the FAQ Page.
