Upon completion of this course the participant will be able to:
1. Design evidence-based evaluations and interventions for older adults that promote functional capabilities.
2. Use assessment instruments to obtain baseline data, develop treatment plans, and document patient outcomes. Assessments will focus on the assessment of functional capabilities (ADLs and IADLs), balance risks for falls, and safety, participation in everyday activities, quality of life, and emotional well being.
3. Use home assessment tools to evaluate the home and community environment for environment barriers to function and for risks for falls.
4. Use plain language in oral and written communication to provide culturally competent client-centered evaluations and treatment in diverse practice settings.
5. Select assessment tools for specific clients, and design treatment programs to support client self-efficacy, function, safety, problem-solving skills, and quality of life.
6. Design and implement client and family-centered interventions that promote discharge from in-patient settings to home and that enable successful community living for frail and or disabled older adults.
