Video Runtime: 147 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 34 Minutes

This course is a recording of a previously hosted live webinar event. Polling and question submission features are not available for this recording. Format and structure may differ from standard MedBridge courses.

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.
