Improving patient outcomes is always a priority for rehabilitation. There is an expansion of literature highlighting the benefits of incorporating motor learning strategies into everyday therapy programs. In addition, the #2 recommendation in the APTA Choosing Wisely campaign has noted the importance of not under-dosing strength training in aging adults. This new educational initiative is emphasizing the importance of matching the intensity and duration of exercise to an individual’s goal and ability.This 2-day course will focus on ways to integrate motor learning strategies while challenging patients to their appropriate physical level. This will include challenges for balance, aerobic conditioning, functional activities, as well as strengthening with an emphasis on providing appropriate adjustments to intervention programs for all practice settings. Videos of actual patient cases will be used throughout the lecture material. Hands-on lab time throughout both days will provide opportunities for putting the approaches into practice. In addition, patient cases designed by attendees of the course will be incorporated into lab practice.
