"Geriatric Syndromes: Identification, Clinical Management, and the Role of the Physical Therapist" 2 CE

We invite you to join us from 6:45 - 9:00 pm on Wednesday, August 5th as we welcome Heidi Moyer, PT, DPT, CEEAA to share her insight and expertise on "Geriatric Syndromes: Identification, Clinical Management, and the Role of the Physical Therapist ."

Geriatric syndromes are clusters of symptoms commonly seen within the older adult population. While most clinicians are familiar with the basic concepts of falls, incontinence, pressure ulcers, delirium, and functional decline, the extent to which these phenotypes affect patient care are rarely considered, even by seasoned healthcare professionals. Furthermore, failure to identify, manage, and integrate interventions to address these problems within our patient populations can result in poor patient outcomes, limited sustainable progress, and successful carryover of intervention. This results in patients who are ineffectively managed and become frequent fliers within the system. This course will include a lecture component and case studies to promote understanding of geriatric syndromes and the role of the physical therapist in managing them to promote best patient care and overall outcomes.

What to expect: 

Objectives:  By the end of this lecture participants will be able to:

  • Compare and contrast 5 common geriatric syndromes to effectively identify them within the older adult population.
  • Appraise and apply how each syndrome commonly manifests within the context of patient cases.
  • Distinguish how each phenotype can impact patient outcomes, progress, and carryover of intervention.
  • Design and prescribe appropriate interventions to manage the root causes of each syndrome
