Webinar Opportunity: Treating Balance & Fall Prevention for the Geriatric Patient

HomeCEU is excited to announce the upcoming continuing education webinar Treating Balance & Fall Prevention for the Geriatric Patient, presented in conjunction with Geoff Mosley, PT, NCS.

Treating Balance & Fall Prevention for the Geriatric Patient is a 4 contact hour live, interactive, webinar continuing education opportunity for Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapy Assistants, Physical Therapists, and Physical Therapist Assistants. This online seminar will be presented live on November 15th, from 8 am to 12 pm CST. (Find your timezone.)

Falls are a leading cause of disability and death among the elderly. It is often that the issues leading to a fall are commonly attributed to the effects of aging alone. However, the causes of falls are multifaceted and often include balance and mobility impairments that are a result of disease processes. Many of these impairments are amenable to therapeutic intervention. In this live, online seminar, Treating Balance & Fall Prevention for the Geriatric Patient, we will outline many of the risk factors and impairments leading to fall risk, how to evaluate high-risk patients, and ideas for intervention. Treating Balance & Fall Prevention for the Geriatric Patient will include discussion of the therapy management of musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiopulmonary, and specific sensory disorders that lead to imbalance and falls. In addition to addressing risk factors and physical therapy management, we will also go over prevention strategies for both home and institutional settings.

This live, interactive online seminar utilizes demonstrative video, slides, graphs and other visual aids to produce a live virtual classroom setting. All participants will have the opportunity to interact with the presenter via a question and answer chat during the presentation. This continuing education webinar is completely interactive and meets live, interactive continuing education requirements for Florida Physical Therapists, Oklahoma Physical Therapists, Iowa Physical Therapists, and Iowa Occupational Therapists.
