The U.S. Census Bureau projects that by 2050, the number of persons over the age of 65 in the United States will nearly double to 40.2 million persons. Within this population, many common functional challenges are present that require evidence-based and person-centered care. This webinar will provide a comprehensive approach to providing person-centered care to the aging adult population and highlight key strategies to improve outcomes, including which outcome measures to utilize, how to incorporate motor learning strategies, adjustments to optimize care for occupational therapists, and guidance for diagnosing specific exercise and balance challenges. A top priority, as noted in the evidence, is for therapists to provide sufficient intensity when working with the aging adult. Additionally, participants will have a unique and interactive opportunity to analyze movement with the speakers as well as time for questions on comparing various options for adjusting the approach depending on the setting.

1. Building Competent Evidence-Based Care for the Aging Adult

This chapter will review the new Geriatrics 5Ms framework and discuss key aspects of incorporating it into all care when working with aging adults. It will also review the CDC’s Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths & Injuries (STEADI) framework, which focuses on evidence-based and highly recommended options for screening and identifying fall risk, including four commonly used outcome measures.

2. Evidence-Based Exercise Activities and the OPTIMAL Theory

In this chapter, we will review evidence-based exercise strategies that improve functional outcomes for the aging adult. Priority motor learning strategies utilizing the OPTIMAL theory will be discussed.

3. Incorporating the OPTIMAL Theory Into Exercise

This chapter will use video demonstrations of different exercises while comparing various ways to incorporate the OPTIMAL theory into practice. Intervention demonstrations will be performed, including a step-by-step demonstration of how to repeat the interventions in the clinic.

4. Optimal Adjustments From an Occupational Therapist’s Perspective

This chapter will discuss the overlap and integration of the content for occupational therapists. A variety of progressions and regressions, applicable to any setting, will be included.

5. Reactive Balance Training

In this chapter, we will highlight the evidence for and benefits of training reactive balance to improve functional outcomes. Incorporating the concepts throughout a person’s rehabilitation is critical to improving safety and decreasing risk for falls.

6. Incorporating Reactive Balance Training Into Your Setting

This chapter will utilize video demonstrations of different progressions and regressions to retrain reactive balance. Intervention demonstrations will be performed, including a step-by-step demonstration of how to repeat the interventions in the clinic.

7. Adjustments From an Occupational Therapist’s Perspective

This chapter will focus on answering participants’ questions. Two speakers will problem-solve through those questions to support participants in incorporating the ideas from the lecture into their specific practices and patient populations.

8. Part 1 Conclusion and Q&A

This chapter will summarize the key takeaways from the course.
