Most clinicians have extensive arsenals of treatment protocols they can use to address their patient's needs. But new information and new treatment options are published every day. Keeping up can feel like a full-time job. Or, you can take this 5-hour course in which Dr. Carole Lewis synthesizes the latest treatment research for older adults and breaks it down into the most clinically relevant options for physical and occupational therapists to use when treating older adults who have issues with posture, flexibility, balance, endurance, or strength.


The course touches on assessment, but it focuses on evidence-based treatment options for older adult that can be used in the clinic or the community. Learn about the most effective treatment protocols as Dr. Lewis demonstrates handouts, step by step protocols, and patient treatment plans are included.
