Exercise Prescription and Management of the Older Adult: An Evidence-Based Approach

Price: $29.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # Q3438  

There is mounting evidence to support the importance of physical activity in improving health, mobility, and function in older adults. This basic-level course reviews the multiple age-related systemic changes that take place in the cardiovascular, respiratory, musculoskeletal, and endocrine systems and describes how exercise may mitigate these changes; provides recommended exercise prescriptions for older adults; and describe how changes after an exercise intervention can be gauged using several clinical measures that can routinely and easily be implemented in clinical practice. Finally, this course addresses special concerns such as the need for medical screening prior to establishing a new exercise program, and special considerations when prescribing exercise for individuals with the various comorbid conditions common in older populations. Equipped with this knowledge, PTs and PTAs should be able to comfortably prescribe, implement, and evaluate a comprehensive exercise program for older adults.

Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias: Medical Overview and Rehabilitation Management

Price: $29.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # Q3485  

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most prevalent form of dementia, accounting for 60% - 80% of all cases. Current estimates suggest that approximately 5 million people in the United States age 65 and older have AD. Because age is the primary risk factor for AD, the number of people with AD is projected to nearly triple by 2050, reaching 13.8 million. The likelihood of rehabilitation professionals treating individuals with AD increases year by year.

This intermediate level course provides useful, pragmatic information to rehabilitation therapists to facilitate successful rehabilitation for individuals with AD. Too often, those with dementia are excluded from rehabilitation opportunities based on the assumption that they will not benefit, or they are given a brief trial of rehabilitation that does not take into consideration the special needs of this population and, as a result, do not make gains. Physical therapists who have limited knowledge of AD and other dementias often manage these individuals within the same theoretical framework and strategies with which they approach their cognitively intact clients, which may result in limited success. Existing evidence shows that the needs of individuals with AD are different than the needs of those without cognitive deficits. Observation of and respect for special considerations related to personal interaction, communication, cueing, and motor learning can substantially impact the success of rehabilitation with this population. Given the prevalence of AD in those over age 65, any rehabilitation professional working with older adults is likely to work with patients with dementia. Physical therapists who address the unique needs of this population will have greater success in their rehabilitation efforts, and their patients will reap the benefits of their knowledge and skill.

This course offers an overview of AD and its medical management, practical information on optimal interactions with individuals with AD, research findings related to motor learning in this population, existing evidence on rehabilitation with individuals with AD, and strategies to facilitate successful outcomes.
