This year, Robyn is bringing her course “Post-Acute Rehabilitation of the Complex Elderly Patient: Home, SNF and Long-Term Care Settings,” to our ERI community. The course focuses on providing evidence-based tests and measures to use for evaluations, reviewing frameworks for effective care planning to reduce re-hospitalizations, and providing evidence-based interventions for optimal outcomes in treating the complex older adult in the SNF and Home Health settings.

Participants will learn to identify evidence-based standardized tests, understand the upcoming changes to SNF and HH payment structure and the impact on therapy and outcomes, utilize research to create functional therapeutic interventions, and how to apply best practices in documentation of skilled services for the complex elderly patient.
