Our popular CEU course designed for PT’s OT’s and Assistants is coming to Pennsylvania in March:

Geriatric Neurology in the Medically Complex Client

Learn evaluation and treatment protocols most appropriate for medically complex older persons with neurological dysfunction. This course will focus on clinical decision making to prioritize key exam findings and develop appropriate treatment strategies in light of complex presentations and co-morbidities. Modifying functional mobility training and therapeutic exercise will be discussed.

Evidence-based information on specific neurological assessment and treatment of older clients with Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, Alzheimer’s Disease, balance and gait disorders, neuro-sensory pathologies, and pain problems will be provided. An evaluative model for looking at neurological dysfunction from a complex medical perspective across the spectrum of care will be addressed. The major pathologies that will be highlighted include Parkinson’s disease, Cerebral Vascular Accidents, and the neurological manifestations of Alzheimer’s disease. A focus on balance and falls, functional mobility, evaluation of numerous causes of dizziness and physical changes, and treatment interventions aimed at decreasing the incidence of falls will also be included.
