Targeted Audience: • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapist Assistants • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Nurse Practitioners • Nurses • Nursing Home Administrators Course Description: Whether your patients’ goals are to return to work, play with their grandkids, or travel the world, your hard work helps them progress toward their functional goals. But one fall can severely set back progress and turn your patient’s life upside down, resulting in rapidly declining health, extended hospital stays, financial loss, fear, and isolation. Falls can often be predicted and prevented if you know what to look for, but all too often, clinicians are so focused on the injury or disability at hand that fall risks are overlooked – until it’s too late. Become a Fall Prevention Specialist and learn how to help patients avoid falls while retaining the strength, balance, and mobility it takes to stay functionally independent. Built on today’s best practices, this hands-on program will show you how to better predict falls with a comprehensive risk assessment that combines the best evaluations currently available. Expand your rehab toolbox for fall prevention and post-fall rehab with interventions you can use immediately. Design robust, innovative plans of care for high risk patients with specific impairments, from diabetes to Parkinson’s. And finally, learn how to develop an effective fall prevention program using tools and strategies that have helped countless patients leave their fear of falling behind. Objectives: • Discuss the latest advances in fall prevention and their implications for rehab. • Demonstrate a comprehensive assessment, identifying and differentiating root causes of fall risk. • Evaluate the most effective interventions available for reducing risk and restoring balance, mobility, and function. • Integrate multiple approaches for better outcomes, including balance and gait training, vestibular rehabilitation, gaze stabilization, multitasking interventions, and environmental modification. • Describe the most effective landing strategies to minimize impact. • Develop an effective home exercise program. • Design robust, innovative plans of care for high risk patients with various diagnoses. • Discuss parameters for safely intensifying rehab. • Determine effective strategies for helping noncompliant, difficult, or depressed patients become more engaged in their recovery. • Review coding and billing updates for fall prevention and post-fall rehab. • Outline key components of a successful fall prevention program. • Describe strategies for effectively marketing a fall prevention program.

Clinical Certainty Through Functional Assessment is organized by International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and will be held from Nov 23 - 24, 2019 at Cleveland University-Kansas City, Overland Park, Kansas, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12 hours of continuing education credits. Description: This course will incorporate hands on and practical experience necessary to perform a thorough exam for an infant. We will cover the first encounter with the infant and parent(s), examination procedures and communication of the findings. We will discuss the importance of the primitive reflexes that are present initially from birth to one year, how they correlate to milestones, nervous system and brain development. Then, we will look at the examination for an older child with a neurodevelopmental delay. For the older child, we will look at what results when the primitive reflexes are retained, the necessity of chiropractic care to assist with their inhibition and how correcting subluxations helps to restore brain balance. Course Goal: You will master how to perform a thorough examination and you will know how to communicate the results in a way that is meaningful to the parents. Certainty comes from having the technical skills first and then the ability to be able to communicate findings so that the parents engage their child in care. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
