The U.S. Census Bureau projects that by 2050, the number of persons over the age of 65 in the United States will nearly double to 40.2 million persons. Within this population, many common functional challenges are present that require evidence-based and person-centered care. This webinar will provide a comprehensive approach to providing person-centered care to the aging adult population and highlight key strategies to improve outcomes, including which outcome measures to utilize, how to incorporate motor learning strategies, adjustments to optimize care for occupational therapists, and guidance for diagnosing specific exercise and balance challenges. A top priority, as noted in the evidence, is for therapists to provide sufficient intensity when working with the aging adult. Additionally, participants will have a unique and interactive opportunity to analyze movement with the speakers as well as time for questions on comparing various options for adjusting the approach depending on the setting.

1. Core and Hip Stability to Improve Function

This chapter will highlight the evidence supporting the integration of core and hip strengthening exercises into any rehab setting to enhance outcomes. Challenging the aging population for the goal of superior outcomes is a priority and requires a comprehensive approach to movement.

2. Prioritizing the Why of Functional Decline

There are a wide range of patient diagnoses, such as scoliosis, arthritis, and total joint replacement, that result in functional decline and balance limitations. This chapter will discuss a variety of patient presentations and the most common evidence-based priority for each.

3. Observational Analysis and Intervention Choices

This chapter will utilize case-based video analysis to practice observation and identify key priorities. Intervention demonstrations will be performed, including a step-by-step demonstration of how to repeat the interventions in the clinic.

4. Taking Your Care to the Next Level (Q&A Session)

This chapter will focus on answering participants’ questions. Two speakers will problem-solve through those questions to support participants in incorporating the ideas from the lecture into their specific practices and patient populations.
