Want to bring Modern Management of the Older Adult to your town?


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.

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.

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

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

OBJECTIVES

  • Prescribe, modify and scale functional, multi-joint exercises for older persons who are healthy community-dwelling older adults or complex clients with multi-morbidities.

  • Design appropriately-dosed exercise programs including progressions and regressions to obtain the intended outcome for your client who is older whether you’re in the home health setting or working with the Masters athlete.

  • Describe how beliefs, expectations, and stereotypes of aging impact older adults’ lives.

  • Describe physiological processes that happen during healthy aging as well as with the development of clinical geriatric syndromes such as frailty and sarcopenia.

  • Develop a thorough examination process with functional measures that are tailored for your patients.

  • Design evidence-based fall prevention programs to obtain the intended outcome for your clients.
