  • Exercise Prescription Management of the Older Adult: An Evidence-Based Approach, 2nd Edition 5
    This intermediate level course is designed to educate PTs and PTAs on the implementation of exercise prescriptions in older adults. This course will review the multiple age-related systemic changes that take place in the cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine and musculoskeletal systems and describe how exercise may mitigate these changes. This course will also provide recommended exercise prescriptions according to the most recent American College of Sports Medicine guidelines for older adults and discuss common barriers for exercise participation in older adults.
  • Preventing Falls in Older Adults 5
    An older adult falls every second of every day, with more than 29 million falls occurring in 2014, resulting in more than 7 million injuries. This intermediate-level course provides healthcare professionals in the areas of physical and occupational therapy with the knowledge they need to successfully identify those at risk for falls, assess individuals, and develop interventions targeted at reducing fall risk in older adults. Although therapists may be aware of the need to assess and treat older adults for risk for falls, they may not be fully abreast of approaches that are supported by evidence and are proven to truly reduce the incidence of falls.
