9:00 AM - 5:00 PM ET
GR-6062 Advanced Topics in Dementia
Cathy H. Ciolek, PT, DPT, FAPTA
This session will address advanced considerations specific for the PT or PTA working with a person who has dementia. In this age of direct access to rehabilitation services, understanding the differential diagnostics for the various subtypes of dementia is critical. It is also key to be able to use tests and measures for assessing cognition and differentiating changes from other pathology such as delirium and depression. Further, there is a growing body of evidence that people with dementia and their care partners benefit from health care professionals who are well versed in recognizing pain and sleep disturbances that may impact quality of life. Additionally, adapting communication techniques, mitigating fall risk, and promoting the benefits of physical activity/exercise can help someone sustain mobility and function despite the added challenges of dementia. This postconference course is available for $185 for APTA Section Members and $285 for others. (.8 CEUs)

9:00 AM - 5:00 PM ET
GR-6130 Age on: Maximizing the Performance of the Geriathlete (2-day course) - DAY 1
Mike T. Studer, PT, MHS, FAPTA; Joel Sattgast, PT, DPT; Becca D. Jordre, PT; Peter C. Barusic, PT; and Christopher Johnson, PT
In this course, presenters will debunk the myths of aging and replace them with current evidence in exercise, training, and sport performance in athletes over 50. The course will cover the emerging trends of sport performance in aging, with attention to endurance, strength, competition, recovery, and sport psychology. Content will be geared toward the high-functioning aging adult and will include general as well as sport-specific information that PTs can apply in practice. Attendees will learn how to test, train, prescribe, and develop effective programming for active or competitive GeriAthletes in individual or team sports, as well as those simply striving for optimal aging. Clinicians will be engaged through evidence-based lecture, case study, and practical lab time learning and being certified in the Senior Athlete Fitness Exam (SAFE). This postconference course is available for $330 for APTA Section Members and $430 for others. (1.4 CEUs)

8:00 PM - 9:00 PM ET

7:00 AM - 4:00 PM ET
HC-9915 Leveraging Telehealth for Fall Screening, Assessment, and Intervention (sponsored by the Florida Physical Therapy Association)
Jacqueline Alicia Osborne, PT, DPT; Linda K. Eargle, PT, DPT, Med; Ginger Diane Snead, PT; Anita Lee Davis, PT, DPT; and Adam Cristopher Geril, PT, DPT, ATC, MS
During the coronavirus pandemic, individuals vulnerable to fall-related injuries were forced to make difficult decisions to defer needed care related to falls in lieu of honoring social distancing mandates. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report that fall death rates increased by 30% over the decade preceding this pandemic. If rates continue to rise, the CDC estimates that at least 7 fall related deaths will occur every hour across the United States by 2030. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services allows physical therapists to furnish telehealth services to beneficiaries for the duration of the COVID-19 emergency. When social distancing is preferred, physical therapists and physical therapist assistants must realize the opportunity to utilize telehealth to deliver skilled services including fall prevention. The speakers will explain how telehealth can be utilized to meet fall prevention needs not only during a health care crisis, but also when hardships are present such as limited access to a preferred provider and lack of transportation. This course will include the logistics for telehealth implementation and resources for community stakeholders regarding the value added to clinical practice through telehealth. This postconference course is available for $235 for APTA Members, $385 for others. (.9 CEUs)

9:00 AM - 5:00 PM ET
GR-5973 Tai Chi Fundamentals for Professional and Personal Wellness
Kristi Hallisy, PT, DSc
Tai chi is an evidence-based exercise with a wide range of applications for therapy and function. Taught in a motor-developmental sequence, the Tai Chi Fundamentals-Adapted (TCF-A) Program is an accessible program for learning tai chi. In this course, attendees will learn tai chi mind-body principles for health promotion and wellness and the 20 Basic Moves of the TCF-A training program. TCF-A Basic Moves can be performed free-standing or modified to accommodate individual needs, such as optional side support, walker support, or seated versions. Attendees will experience the choreographed dance of tai chi (form practice) via Part 1 of the TCF-A Short Form. Tai chi can be used in a variety of physical therapy treatment settings, including hospitals, rehab units, outpatient clinics, home care, community wellness classes, senior centers, and long-term care facilities. This course features lecture, lab, demonstration, clinical application via case/group discussion, and partner teaching practicums. This course qualifies as partial contact hours (8 of 30) for fulfillment for TCF-A Program Instructor Certification. This postconference course is available for $185 for APTA Section Members and $285 for others.
