  • Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias: Medical Overview and Rehabilitation Management, 2nd ed - 4HRS
    The purpose of this course is to provide useful, pragmatic information to rehabilitation therapists to facilitate successful rehabilitation for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Too often, those with dementia are excluded from rehabilitation opportunities based on the assumption that they will not benefit, or they are given a brief trial of rehabilitation that does not take into consideration the special needs of this population and, as a result, they do not make gains. This course will provide an overview of Alzheimer’s disease and its medical management, practical information on optimal interactions with individuals who have Alzheimer’s disease, research findings related to motor learning in this population, existing evidence on rehabilitation with individuals with dementia, and strategies to facilitate successful outcomes. 
  • Chronic Illness and Depression- PT - 3HRS
    This  basic-level course addresses the knowledge gap by providing rehabilitation  professionals with an overview of the co-occurrence of depression and chronic conditions and identifying challenges in screening and referring adults with chronic conditions and depression. It provides explanations for potential causes of and contributing factors to depression unique to individuals with chronic medical conditions. Although individuals with chronic conditions are at increased risk for depression, this course also explores factors that may enhance such individuals’ well-being and diminish the likelihood of depression.
  • Evidence-Based Management of Knee Osteoarthritis - 4HRS
    The purpose of this intermediate level course is to provide physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with up-to date, evidence-based information pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of knee OA. Although this course will be most applicable to physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who work with older individuals in outpatient settings, the increased incidence of OA makes the information in this course relevant to therapists in a variety of settings. Even therapists who specialize and treat patients in areas other than orthopaedic settings will likely encounter individuals whose OA affects their participation, mobility, or function.
  • Examination and Management of the Client With Parkinson's Disease, 2nd Edition - 5HRS
    The purpose of this  course is to provide licensed practitioners with information concerning the current state of medical errors, the impact of medical errors on the safety of patients, and the importance of establishing and working in a culture of safety. Contributing causes and types of medical errors are reviewed. Strategies to reduce or prevent medical errors and improve patient outcomes are presented. Methods to identify, analyze, and report medical errors are reviewed, populations at risk for medical errors are identified, and patient safety initiatives including education for the public and healthcare professionals are explored. 
  • Exercise Prescription Management of the Older Adult: An Evidence-Based Approach, 2nd Edition - 5HRS
    This intermediate level course is designed to educate PTs and PTAs on the implementation of exercise prescriptions in older adults. This course will review the multiple age-related systemic changes that take place in the cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine and musculoskeletal systems and describe how exercise may mitigate these changes. This course will also provide recommended exercise prescriptions according to the most recent American College of Sports Medicine guidelines for older adults and discuss common barriers for exercise participation in older adults.
  • Functional Assessment of the Older Adult, 2e - 4HRS
    Adults age 65 and older represent the fastest growing population both in the United States and in the world. Physical therapy practitioners and other rehabilitation providers play a pivotal role in maximizing function, participation, and well-being for older adults. This intermediate-level course will enable physical therapy practitioners to understand and assess functional performance in older adults using a multidimensional approach. Client factors (including physical, cognitive, and psychosocial factors) and their impact on performance skills will be reviewed. 
  • Preventing Falls in Older Adults - 5HRS
    An older adult falls every second of every day, with more than 29 million falls occurring in 2014, resulting in more than 7 million injuries. This intermediate-level course provides healthcare professionals in the areas of physical and occupational therapy with the knowledge they need to successfully identify those at risk for falls, assess individuals, and develop interventions targeted at reducing fall risk in older adults. Although therapists may be aware of the need to assess and treat older adults for risk for falls, they may not be fully abreast of approaches that are supported by evidence and are proven to truly reduce the incidence of falls.
