Updated Strategies for Designing Exercise Therapy for the Older Adult Home Health Patient

Course: #4135Level: Introductory2 Hours
Live WebinarFri, Aug 6, 2021 at 12:00 pm EDT

Evidence-informed patient-centered care requires that home health physical therapists set achievable goals by avoiding the underdosing of exercise intensity for older adults. Patient-specific approaches to exercise prescriptions are cost-effective in reducing re-hospitalizations and promoting an early return to functional activities. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
