Modern Management of the Older Adult: Advanced Concepts

Take your skills to the next level in managing the complexities of specific older adult clinical populations.

Modern Management of the Older Adult: Advanced Concepts

This online course is designed for rehabilitation professionals who have completed Modern Management of the Older Adult: Essential Foundations and are looking for a deep-dive into specific, yet common, clinical populations.

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.


  • 8 weeks long - 2 hours/week commitment
  • Lifetime access to course & online community
  • Weekly assignments & video conference calls
    • Video conference calls take place every Thursday at 8pm EST & are optional but encouraged. They are recorded & can be viewed later if unable to attend.
    • Our online courses require active participation to be awarded credit which may include reading, homework assignments, and quizzes. We do not allow students to “drop back” to preceding cohorts due to inability to complete work assigned except under extraordinary circumstances. ICE faculty have the final decision in allowing a “drop back” but students are only allowed one “drop back” per course. Failure to complete the course on your 2nd attempt will not yield CEU credit. All courses allow for a 7 day grace period after course conclusion to receive CEU credit.
