Integrating Priority Outcome Measures When Assessing Aging Adults
presented by J.J. Mowder-Tinney

Video Runtime: 67 Minutes; Learning Assessment Runtime: 39 Minutes

Recommendations in the APTA Choosing Wisely campaign have noted the importance of not under-dosing strength training in aging adults. This new educational initiative is stressing the importance of matching the intensity and duration of exercise to an individual’s goal and ability. The emphasis of this course is not on how to perform the tests but on how a few key tests can help drive your intervention choices and provide critical information to you and the patient about improvement. The use of this information will have a direct impact on improving the patient outcomes as well as patient motivation. Learn more
