Exercise and the Older Adult through the Care Continuum: An Evidence Based Toolbox for Specific Populations

                                  

Exercise and the Older Adult through the Care Continuum:

An Evidence Based Toolbox for Specific Populations

By Carol McFarland PT, PhD, OCS

8 Contact Hours

Course objectives

  • Integrate patient education program for understanding the benefits of active recovery in the reconditioning
  • Be familiar with resources such as ACSM guidelines for fitting exercise to target population
  • Describe benchmarks for progress in physical training in each of the systems.
  • Identifying functional loss characteristics to help determine the most tolerable movements for patients
  • Become familiar with the current state of the art with motor control exercises in the rehabilitation process for musculoskeletal dysfunction.
  • Use findings from neurologic exam to plan exercise interventions and track progress
  • Describe new approaches to specific neurologic disorders, apply research findings to practice
  • Following current recommendations for diagnosis specific cardiopulmonary rehab
  • Identify and plan respiratory exercise and integrate with conditioning programs.
  • Maximize surgical outcomes through appropriate rehabilitation techniques for specific orthopedic diagnoses, spine and extremities.
  • Describe the potential role of biologics in treatment of degenerative joint disease.
