Patient falls are all too common in the healthcare setting. Falls can cause injury and even death. According to accrediting agency reports, falls with serious injury are consistently among the top ten reported sentinel events. Crucially, they are also preventable. This course has been designed to help you protect patients from falls. You will learn about: • Risk factors for falls • Strategies for preventing falls

As people age, they experience a higher fall rate compared to younger populations. When seniors and the elderly do fall, they are more likely to become injured or die compared to the general population. Seniors can mitigate this risk, improve mobility, and enhance their overall quality of life through exercise and physical activity. There are four types of exercise trainings: aerobic exercises increase breathing and heart rates, strength exercises improve muscle performance, balance training improve coordination, and flexibility exercises keep the body limber. All senior patients are not alike, though. Frail seniors may live in institutions or other settings that give some level of care support, while others still live independently; each group has its own exercise needs. Seniors may also have special exercise needs after completing physical therapy, regardless of the care support they normally receive. This course discusses how exercise is linked to fall prevention, and the physical therapy professional’s role to create exercise programs that positively improve the senior patient’s balance, strength, reaction time, and functional ability while reducing their fall risk, in both institutional and community settings.

Each year, many people suffer back injuries due to improper lifting and carrying practices while at work. OSHA consistently finds that healthcare workers are one of the top 10 occupations with the most work-related musculoskeletal injuries. Physical therapy workers are certainly part of this group, as they routinely move items, equipment, and patients from place to place as they deliver care and treatment. This course discusses how to properly lift and carry a load, how to safely transfer patients from place to place, and how to manage a safe facility.

Aging is a natural, inevitable process that affects the whole body and impacts all people who live to an advanced age. The most effective intervention for older adults experiencing this process is exercise. When older adults participate in strength training correctly, these exercises are very safe and are shown to be an effective tool used by physical therapy professionals to promote successful aging. The normal changes that occur during the aging process must be considered if a physical therapy professional is going to design an appropriate strengthen training program for older adults, for both the healthy, active older adult as well as those who become sarcopenic, frail, or suffer from a pathology. This course discusses the aging process, how strength training is used to offset the aging process, and how physical therapy professionals can positively impact the quality of life for older adults by implementing strength training into their routines.

Nerve compression syndromes of the hand are present in about 5% of the U.S. population, with Carpal tunnel syndrome being the most prevalent. Compression syndromes of the median nerve are vulnerable to many factors, including inadequate anatomical space inside the carpal tunnel, changes in fluid balance, inflammatory or metabolic disorders, and environmental causes like vibration, repetition, and poor positioning. This course will help physical therapy professionals identify the etiology, presentation, and treatment options for Carpal tunnel and similar compression syndromes.

Cardiovascular Disease significantly impacts the health of many in the United States, being responsible for almost one-third of all deaths. It is a class of diseases that involves the heart and circulatory system, which includes coronary artery disease and stroke. The primary method for both preventing cardiovascular disease and for managing the disease after onset is to engage in physical activity on a regular basis. Physical and occupational therapy professionals can help their patients and clients manage cardiovascular disease through preventative management and care, especially through physical activity. This course discusses the types of cardiovascular disease, how they impact those who suffer from them, and how physical and occupational therapy professionals can help their patients and clients suffering from this disease.
