Description

New research provides avenues to understand how physical movement is affected by cognitive impairment.  Even subtle cognitive changes such as Mild Cognitive Impairment significantly impact balance and movement.  Certain dementias are associated with motor impairment, which increases fall risk.  There are specific behavioral issues, personality factors and care issues that need to be recognized as fall risks.  Comprehensive fall risk assessment and strategies for management are incorporated into this lecture.  

 

This course is suitable for both beginning and intermediate levels.  There is an introduction to dementia, which is necessary and appropriate for beginners.  It also applies to intermediate levels as it expands upon the introductory level, focusing on the role of the professional as educator, advocate & clinician.
