Summary

From 1RM living to exercise to modify neurologic disease progression to gait speed, the Geriatrics Bundle is sure to elevate your knowledge and practice.

Wondering how your clients are doing in their community or at home? One-Rep Max Living - when one's maximum capacity is near or below the demands of life, will be discussed, focusing on methods to identify, intervene, and help our clients avoid this scenario. Effective screening techniques, scalable methods to increase patients' capacities, and strategies to create long-term change in their clients will be covered by Board-Certified Geriatric Clinical Specialist Dustin Jones, PT, DPT.

Neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new nerve connections, is a life-long process and a way for the brain to fine-tune itself for efficiency by modifying existing nerve pathways. Exercise can rewire the brain, promote wellness, and may positively impact the progression of neurologic age-related changes. Join Jackie Russell, RN, BSN, CNOR, and David Zid, ACE, as they show you how to create a personal training agenda or group exercise program for the aging population using aerobic exercise, focused functional mobility practice, with memory/cognitive and dual tasking challenges. 

The clinical assessment of gait speed reflects the integrated performance of multiple organ systems and has been referred to as the "sixth vital sign." Gait speed is an important clinical indicator of health and predictor of health outcomes. It is a significant predictor of length of hospital stay, discharge disposition from the hospital, probability of hospital readmission, and mortality. Join Lisa Kohler, PT, DPT, to learn how the physical therapy professional plays a vital role in assessing gait speed and identifying at-risk patients in different practice settings.

1RM Living: How to Identify, Treat, and Avoid

Date Published: February 9, 2021

Learning Objectives:

  • Implement an effective screening process to identify one-rep max living.
  • Distinguish which deficits are of greatest importance to address within your training plan.
  • Execute an effective training plan to increase one's capacity, even in the midst of medical complexity.
  • Develop effective programs to promote long term change to help patients avoid one-rep max living.

Summary

Do you ever wonder how your clients are doing in their community or at home? We may think some of our clients are doing just fine but in reality, they may be struggling to meet the demands of what it takes to maintain independence. This can be a rather dangerous scenario and can often be urgent. We call this scenario One-Rep Max Living - when one’s maximum capacity is near or below the demands of life. This interactive session will dive into the concept of One-Rep Max Living with a focus on methods to identify, intervene, and help our clients avoid this scenario. Attendees will walk away with effective screening techniques, scalable methods to increase patients’ capacities, and strategies to create long term change in their clients

Exercise for Brain Health

Date Published: June 22, 2021

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the importance of regular aerobic exercise to the preservation of brain health, memory and cognition.
  • Describe how exercise may enhance the process of neuroplasticity and the brain's ability to develop new circuits.
  • Identify components of a successful recipe for an exercise program to preserve brain wellness across the aging continuum.
  • Understand the challenges of virtual exercise instruction.

Summary

Experience how exercise can rewire the brain, promote wellness, and may positively impact the progression of neurologic age-related changes. Neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to create new circuits, maybe the driving mechanism behind positive functional and cognitive changes in people with Alzheimer's Disease, and age-related memory and cognitive loss. Exercise enhances this neuroplastic response Understand the importance of structured sessions of high-intensity aerobic training followed by goal-based task-specific exercise using quality repetition. Learn the recipe for success to create a personal training agenda or group exercise program for the aging population using aerobic exercise, focused functional mobility practice, with memory/cognitive and dual tasking challenges. Understand the importance of integrating humor and fostering a positive attitude of hope to class instruction. This presentation will include both lecture and interactive format.
 
Agenda:
  • Brief review of pathophysiology, symptoms and presentation of Alzheimer's Disease and the normal aging process (10 minutes)
  • Discussion of neuroplasticity - definition and how exercise may positively impact this process in the brain (10 minutes)
  • Understand the ingredients for a successful recipe for a group exercise class targeting the dementia population, and anyone working on enhanced memory and cognition.(10 minutes)
  • Exercise demonstration (25 minutes)
  • Q&A (5 minutes)

The Sixth Vital Sign: Gait Speed

Date Published: June 13, 2017

Summary

The clinical assessment of gait speed reflects the integrated performance of multiple organ systems, such as the nervous, sensory, musculoskeletal, and cardiopulmonary systems and has been referred to as the “sixth vital sign." Its assessment has been recommended as part of any standard inpatient geriatric evaluation. Gait speed has been shown to be an important clinical indicator of health and predictor of health outcomes. Gait speed has been shown to be a significant predictor of length of hospital stay, discharge disposition from hospital, probability of hospital readmission, and mortality. Gait speed has been suggested to reflect the likelihood of good health and better survival. The physical therapist plays an important role in assessing gait speed and identifying at-risk patients in many different practice settings. Once identified, modifiable factors can be identified and appropriate treatments may be initiated while admitted in hosp ital and beyond the patient’s hospitalization.
