During this lecture, the presenter will review current research, screenings, treatment, and management of fall prevention/balance in elderly patients. In addition, steps will be reviewed to help elderly patients limit their risks of falling.   

Objectives:

  • Learners will be able to describe methods to help assess older patients' balance, muscle strength, and reaction time.
  • Learners will view methods for improving balance, muscle strength, and reaction time for patients.
  • Learners will be able to list tools that can be used to assess improvement in balance, muscle strength, and reaction time in patients.
  • Learners will be able to find lists of ancillary services and therapies that can be prescribed to reduce fall risks.
  • Learners will practice using the methods learned to assess older patients' balance, muscle strength, and reaction time on themselves during the presentation so they know how to assess these abilities.
  • Learners will watch the faculty member describe and demonstrate effective methods for communicating with their older patients about methods for improving balance, muscle strength, and reaction time.
  • Learners will practice assessing improvement in balance, muscle strength, and reaction time by using case study baseline initial assessment scores and comparing them to their own current assessment results.
  • Learners will be able to demonstrate to older patients effective methods for improving balance, muscle strength, and reaction time.
  • Learners will decrease falls in older patients, which leads to decreased severity of complications caused by falls.
