1 Rep Max Living: How to Identify & Address (NTD)
Tuesday, April 20, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM CDT
Category: District Meetings

Many of our patients lack the capacity and resources to function independently within their home. They are struggling to meet the demands of what it takes to maintain independence. This can be a rather dangerous scenario and can often be urgent. We call this scenario One-Rep Max Living - when one’s maximum capacity is near or below the demands of life. What is of equal importance is that these scenarios are not exclusive to homebound adults but can be found in many physical therapy settings. This interactive session will dive into the concept of One-Rep Max Living with a focus on methods to identify, treat, and help our patients avoid this scenario. 1CCU

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:
1. Understand the implications of one-rep max living;
2. Implement an effective evaluation process to identify one-rep max living;
3. Execute an effective plan of care to increase one's capacity, even in the midst of medical complexity.
