The geriatric population is one that frequently is referred for physical therapy care. They typically have many areas where they could benefit from the guided care of a physical therapist. This includes but is certainly not limited to various joint pains, balance deficits, abnormal gait, and low strength/endurance to name a few. This course can provide further insight into how to appropriately care for this population by optimizing their outcomes and improving their function. 8 CCUs 

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:
1) Review exercise prescription and dosage in the geriatric population;
2) Determine and address fall risk in the geriatric population;
3) Utilize outcomes measures that are both clinically useful and easily performed in all settings;
4) Implement functional treatment strategies across the continuum of geriatric care.
