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. Course Participants will be able to apply course learning immediately to: • Identify evidence-based standardized tests when establishing plans of care for the complex elderly patient. • Describe the upcoming changes to both SNF and HH payment structure and the impact on therapy and outcomes. • Develop a working knowledge of best practices while utilizing presented frameworks/processes for care transitions to prevent rehospitalization for the complex elderly patient. • Utilize research to create functional therapeutic interventions (including fall prevention programs and interventions to improve balance) across post-acute settings. • Apply best practices in documentation of skilled services for the complex elderly patient. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
