Falls and subsequent injuries are an ongoing issue in healthcare and we as clinicians need to know how to intervene to not only treat falls, but also to prevent them before they happen.
During this course you will get the most up-to-date, clinically-relevant evaluation and treatment techniques for improving balance in geriatric and neurologically impaired individuals. A key focus is on learning to select and use the most appropriate tools for assessing balance/risk of falls and evaluating function. You will examine the relationship between cognition, the sensory system and all the musculo-skeletal aspects that impact on balance and fall risk. This will improve your clinical skills in assessment of high-risk fall patients. Providing appropriate pre-(minimizing the risks) and post-fall interventions is very critical to FALL PREVENTION.
NOTE: Tuition includes one free CE Certificate (participant will be able to print the certificate of completion after completing and passing the on-line post-test evaluation).
