Developing Exercise Programs for Complex Patients

Description

Clinicians are currently dealing with a wide variety of complex patients and are concerned about how much to push them to do activities due to safety, yet they know they should not be too conservative.

This webinar will provide physical and occupational therapists with tools and strategies to help
problem solve regarding the level of complexity of the patient as well as the patient’s tolerance to exercise and activities of daily living as demonstrated on an exercise assessment, and determine if the responses to activity are normal versus abnormal. From this information, the learner will be able to make appropriate clinical decisions for an initial exercise prescription, including tolerance to activities of daily living, for these complex patients depending upon the severity of the complexities.

How to Prepare

Learning Objectives

  1. Determine the level of complexity a patient presents with when developing an exercise program
  2. Determine the appropriate exercise tolerance test to choose to evaluate a patient’s exercise performance
  3. Assess physiological responses to exercise test or activities as normal or abnormal
  4. Develop an initial aerobic exercise prescription for complex patients seen in a variety of settings for activity and ADLs
  5. Develop exercise programs for general strengthening, flexibility and respiratory
