#7417 Geriatric Balance Examination & Interventions
The purpose of this course is to enable clinicians to select and administer appropriate balance and fall examination and interventions for the aging adult. Physical therapists will be instructed how to perform reliable and valid functional outcomes measures for elders to identify mobility and balance impairments and to determine their risk of falls. A review of the evidence for the effectiveness of selected interventions to promote balance and reduce falls risk will be discussed. Clinicians will be able to design effective, evidence-based plans of care for elders with balance and mobility challenges.
