New Evidence Based Research in Treatment Techniques of Mobility in Older Adults- Healthclick Introduces New PT OT CME Course, Optimizing Functional Mobility in the Older

As the population ages, there is a continual growing need for physical and occupational therapists and other health care providers to develop comprehensive solutions to maximize mobility and achieve postitive functional outcomes. This intermediate level course will utilize the best evidence based research in examination and treatment techniques for older adults and apply them to results driven clinical practices. This course will teach clinicians how to perform a comprehensive examination of older adults with orthopedic, neurologic, and cardiopulmonary diagnoses as well as other pathologies with an emphasis on integrating findings into the development of the plan of care. A variety of tests and interventions will be practiced in labs to allow participants the opportunity to practice the concepts discussed during lectures, such as appropriate strength training for older adults and treatment of vestibular disorders. Since vestibular disorders may be missed in older adults, identification and treatment of vestibular impairment is vital to successful outcomes in this population to prevent further injury and to establish a successful path toward functional mobility. This course will also include implications of other diagnoses common to older adults such as diabetes, osteoporosis, stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, hip fracture, and several other diagnoses. Case studies will be used for participants to practice problem solving and clinical decision making in older adults. The information in this course can be adapted for all practice settings including acute care, inpatient rehab, skilled nursing facilities/subacute, outpatient, and home care. This Geriatric continuing education course for PT, PTA, OT and ATC's is an evidence based course that will incorporate current and relevant information to develop an individualized treatment plan to improve functional outcomes in your patients. A comprehensive manual will supplement the didactic and lab portions of the course.

This course will be presented:
October 24-25, 2015 at Multicare Tacoma General Hospital in Tacoma, WA - 16 hours of CME Tuition $450

November 21-22, 2015 at CJW Sports Medicine-Boulders Richmond, VA - 16 hours of CME Credit $450
