Become Confident and Competent in caring for older adults with a special emphasis on building strength and fighting frailty.

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.

Take a deep dive into exploring myths and misconceptions of aging while 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 to stave off functional decline.
