Despite advances in medicine, increased access to healthcare, and improved surgical strategies, quality of life for adult and geriatric populations has been reduced as quantity of life has taken priority. Regardless of clinical setting, clinicians are asked to magically improve quality of life with reduced funding, reduced time, and increased documentation demands.
How can I improve quality of life and participation in meaningful activity while meeting the demands of the industry? How can I effectively evaluate and provide treatment strategies addressing stability, mobility, falls, confidence, gait, and mobility with my clients in their specific context? How do I return my practice to an emphasis on quality treatment with a focus on the client developing strategies specific to increase quality and participation in life?
If these questions are occupying your thoughts these days, then this innovative, evidence-based course is for you. You’ll learn new perspectives, at least a dozen assessment tools that provide objective data, and 2-3 dozen treatment strategies plus hundreds of ways to grade it them up or down. And…you’ll be engaged and energized.
This innovative, evidence-based course presents the latest best practices for assessing degenerative changes due to functional decline and creating a practical treatment plan that focuses holistically on addressing all client areas. You will learn new and effective strategies designed for promoting mobility and stability to delay common age-related physical impairment. Emphasis will be placed not just on increasing strength, but also on the appropriate functional movement pattern.
This course is based on an evolutionary pattern approach in which clinicians are trained to adjust or evolve treatment plans depending on how each individual is responding that day and that minute. For example, some patients perform optimally when starting with heat and some patients respond poorly to heat. Some do well with heat first most days, but not today. You can’t treat all patients, or even all patients dealing with the same deficits, the same way. You have to be alert and willing to change your approach depending on what you see in your patient moment to moment.
This course addresses three major areas:
Trent Brown’s background is unique, which is why he looks at the human body and activities in a different way than most therapists. He was a gymnast, a diver and an acrobat. These experiences have helped him learn to take a complicated task and break it down for a 90 year old. If you’re looking for fresh ideas and innovative thinking, this course is for you.
Trent is known for making learning fun. His course is based on solid evidence and it’s also totally engaging. He is crazy creative! To make sure that you leave with practices that can be put to use safely tomorrow, he devotes 6-7 hours of this course to lab work. You will learn, practice, get feedback, and then practice again until you have mastered the skills.
The course manual is often referred to as a picture book because it includes pictures of deficits, pictures of research results that address the problem (actual pictures, not just words), and then pictures of a therapist using assessments and interventions while working with a patient. Participants LOVE the picture book and many have told Trent that they attend his course because they’ve seen their colleagues’ picture book.
