Recommendations in the APTA Choosing Wisely campaign have noted the importance of not under-dosing strength training in aging adults. This new educational initiative is stressing the importance of matching the intensity and duration of exercise to an individual's goal and ability. The emphasis of this course is on realistic and prioritized interventions performed at the appropriate intensity. Four major impairment areas will be reviewed, including posture/strength/aerobic conditioning and balance. Intervention ideas for each of these systems, and how they should build on each other and be progressed, will be discussed.

1. Case Pre-Assessment

It is critical to always focus on the results of outcome measures during treatment. This chapter will review the impact of outcome measure scores on the design of interventions.

2. Posture

The goal of this chapter is to increase therapists’ confidence level in assessing a patient's postural limitations and the impact they have on an individual’s goal and ability. The focus will be on comparing and contrasting multiple interventions that could be used to improve posture.

3. Strengthening

The goal of this chapter is to increase therapists’ confidence level in matching the intensity and duration of strengthening exercises to an individual’s goal and ability. The focus will be on comparing and contrasting multiple interventions that could be used to appropriately challenge and improve strength.

4. Aerobic Conditioning

The goal of this chapter is to increase therapists’ confidence level in matching the intensity and duration of aerobic conditioning exercises to an individual’s goal and ability. The focus will be on comparing and contrasting multiple interventions that could be used to appropriately challenge and improve aerobic conditioning.

5. Balance

The goal of this chapter is to increase therapists’ confidence level in matching the intensity and duration of balance exercises to an individual’s goal and ability. The focus will be on comparing and contrasting multiple interventions that could be used to appropriately challenge and improve balance.
