In this intensive treatment course, presented by acclaimed speaker; Carole Campbell Burnett you will learn to use evidence based interventions for improving balance, preventing falls, promoting strength and function in geriatric and neurologic patients. A key focus is learning to select and use the most appropriate tools for assessing balance/ risk of falls and evaluating function. Participants will examine the relationship between cognition, the sensory system and balance control problems and will apply motor control interventions and motor learning concepts to specific conditions. Focus is on effective evidence based treatment strategies to prevent falls and readmission, improve functional balance and mobility and optimize the environment for patients with balance problems, including the elderly, those with stroke, Parkinson’s disease and medically complex conditions across the continuum of care.
