Course Description

This online ce course utilizes content from the textbook “Geriatric Physical Therapy” Third Edition by Andrew A Guccione, PT, PhD, DPT, FAPTA; Rita A Wong EdD, PT and Dale Avers, PT, DPT, PhD © 2012, published by Elsevier.
 
Instructional Level: Beginner to Intermediate
 
This text offers comprehensive coverage of geriatric physical therapy science and practice, with practical information and evaluation, and intervention approaches that maximize optimal aging.  It emphasizes evidence-based content that rehabilitation professionals can use throughout the patient management process and includes the foundational knowledge needed for clinical success.

Throughout this third edition, information has been updated to reflect the latest foundational science of geriatric physical therapy, ranging from basic physiology of aging to clinical epidemiology of disease and disability.   This course integrates health and functional status information with examination data, to formulate an accurate diagnosis, and thus the tools necessary to design effective treatment plans that can be implemented at all levels of care and across all settings to produce optimal outcomes.
 
To better meet your professional needs, this fully illustrated text of 593 pages has been carefully broken down by sections into 5 modules.  Each module approved for 10 contact hours of post-graduate continuing education (NOTE: board approvals vary state to state, please check your states approval status in the state specific course catalog by returning to our home page and entering both your state and profession).
