Common Chronic Health Conditions Associated With Aging
3 Hrs
This course is designed to assist healthcare professionals in encouraging, teaching, and guiding older adults with chronic conditions to practice healthy lifestyles. This course explores common chronic conditions associated with aging, and discusses how healthcare professionals can help older adults manage these conditions and enhance health. Included is a look at the emotional effects of coping with loss, disability, and chronic conditions. Depression and bereavement are described, along with the stages of grief and methods of distinguishing among them. Because the incidence of cancer increases with age, preventive cancer screening and prevention guidelines for older adults are presented. Prevention, treatment of, and coping with such common problems as hearing loss, hypertension, and incontinence are also discussed. Because stroke, arthritis, and osteoporosis all have the potential to negatively affect functional status, these conditions are also reviewed to help promote healthy aging.

Concussion Management: A Comprehensive Evidence-Based Approach for the Physical Therapist
4 Hrs
This intermediate course is designed for practicing physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who work with individuals with acute and chronic concussion. This course will be most beneficial for the clinician who has a basic knowledge of concussion and concussion management, but has not recently reviewed the current literature in concussion care that includes the significant changes in the classification of concussion and the approach to diagnosis that considers the complexity of concussion and the need for individualized patient centered care. Gaps in knowledge that have been identified in physical therapy practice include the role of neuroimaging in concussion, the understanding of current guidelines and definitions of concussion, how to identify and design interventions based on individual examination results, and the prescription of individualized graded return to activity and sport. This course will provide a more comprehensive evidenced based understanding of the complex nature of concussion including the pathophysiology of concussion, physiologic, cervicogenic, and vestibulo-ocular dysfunction that may result, the current suggested classification methods, an understanding of the shift in recommended timelines for rest and return to activity, and the tools necessary for evidenced based examination and treatment.

Ethical Practices with Older Adults, Revised Updated 1st Edition
4 Hrs
The number of older adults (age 65 and older) living in the United States is growing rapidly. Almost 60 million older adults were living in the United States in 2016. This number is projected to rise to over 72 million by 2030, when approximately one in five U.S. residents will be age 65 or older. The rapid growth of the older population results from multiple factors including medical advances, life-prolonging technologies, and the aging of the Baby Boom generation (whose members began turning 65 years old in 2011). 
In coming years, healthcare professionals will face this aging of the population, along with the accompanying health and economic challenges. The purpose of this course is to highlight ethical issues that may confront healthcare and behavioral health professionals working with older adults and their families as these individuals near the end of life. Many of these issues are related to advances in medical technologies that have occurred over the past several decades (and that continue to be developed) and have led to increasingly complex choices. The course will provide background on ethical frameworks and principles used in healthcare settings for guidance in resolving ethical problems. This course will also identify major ethical issues concerning older adults and healthcare decisions and provide a model for addressing ethical dilemmas in healthcare settings. 
This basic-level course is written for healthcare professionals, including nurses, social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, occupational and physical therapy practitioners, and respiratory therapists. Other healthcare professionals who work with older adults and on interdisciplinary teams will also find the information presented useful to their practice.

Promoting Healthy Aging for the Older Adult
7 Hrs
The demographic changes of the United States have created an urgent need for more healthcare professionals educated in the care of older adults. The U.S. Census Bureau projects that by the year 2050, 89 million Americans will be 65 years of age or older. In fact, 20% of older adults will represent the U.S. population by 2030.  According to the AOA, adults aged 65 and older will outnumber children 5 years of age and younger in the years to come. This rapidly aging population is challenging the health care system to come up with ways to meet the needs of older adults and set the stage for developing a healthier society. 
 
This course is designed to assist healthcare professionals in encouraging, teaching, and guiding older adults to actively practice healthy lifestyles. This course allows professional registered nurses, along with all other healthcare professionals that work with older adults to gain additional knowledge in geriatrics and be able to provide satisfactory care to improve outcomes for older adults. Healthcare professionals will be able to recognize the needs of older adult clients and develop person-centered plans to support optimal living and promote healthy aging. Additionally, this course will set the stage for developing a healthier society for all to age well and successfully.

Understanding Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: An Overview for Physical Therapists, 2nd Edition
3 Hrs
This basic level course provides an overview of PTSD for physical therapists working in a variety of roles and settings. This course addresses basic information regarding PTSD, including DSM-5 diagnostic criteria, etiology, incidence, risk factors, interventions and treatment methods.  Though detailed assessment and treatment of PTSD is outside of the physical therapist’s scope of practice, PTSD will impact the patient’s quality of life.  In order to provide holistic care to the patient, physical therapists need to be able to screen and refer patients appropriately and understand the treatments that help them recover.
