Course Description

From Education Resources Inc, “The focus of post-acute care has begun and will continue to shift towards value over volume. This does not mean that less therapy is indicated. However, what a therapist focuses on when evaluating and setting the plan of care will be even more critical in this new environment. This course will focus on providing evidence-based tests and measures to use for evaluations, review frameworks for effective care planning to reduce re-hospitalizations and provide evidence-based interventions for optimal outcomes in treating the complex older adult in the SNF and Home Health settings. Case studies for diagnoses such as Parkinson’s Disease, Sarcopenia and Heart Failure will be introduced for participants to utilize critical thinking processes combined with recent research to identify best practices of care for this population. In addition, various preventative aspects a therapist can incorporate into practice will be provided.”
