This course will review which evidence-based outcome measures are supported in the skilled nursing (SNF)/long term care (LTC) facility settings as per the current research, as well as those that fall short for applicable use in this environment. Through critical inspection of these items, the participant will be able to understand the importance of the use of population-relevant outcome measures to ensure best physical therapy practice in the SNF/LTC settings. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
During this course, the presenters misspoke regarding the TUG. A TUG time (score) of less than 15 seconds is the cut-off point for ruling out the likelihood of a fall.

Heidi Moyer, PT, DPT, CEEAA
Heidi Moyer, PT, DPT, CEEAA graduated with her doctor of physical therapy degree from Angelo State University. Her research work in graduate school consisted of a longitudinal study correlating outcome measure assessments in local nursing home residents to falls risk.
