This comprehensive course series focused on geriatric assessment and rehabilitation will give participants an in-depth look at improving assessment, functional tasks, and optimizing overall quality of life for elderly patients.
There has been an explosion of research documenting the ability of exercise to reduce morbidity and enhance function in the older adult. This course series will provide strategies and techniques based on best practices and the latest research to implement effective geriatric exercise interventions. Participants will learn how to improve functional tasks like stair negotiation, walking endurance, bed mobility, and transfers. Differences in types of strength exercises will be defined to help understand the application in rehabilitation.
