Watch an award-winning therapist demonstrate evidence-based practice, standardized tests, clinical reasoning, goal setting & documentation. Three hours of this course is devoted to clinical demonstrations.


We begin with a review of some of the most important publications regarding function and older persons. Then we follow Danielle Keyser as she evaluates and treats 3 patients (4 if you watch the bonus section) with a variety of diagnoses from deconditioning to vestibular deficits.  Danielle Keyser and Dr. Carole Lewis explore the key lessons demonstrated in the cases and also discuss the different roles OT and PT play in patient rehabilitation. The final session on rehab equipment is not to be missed. The suggestions for inexpensive and incredibly useful tools for adapting function are ingenious!


Danielle Keyser’s electric personality and deep passion rivet the participant to the screen. She brings the rehabilitation therapy to its much-deserved level of competences.
