This course utilizes text from the hardback textbook by Andrew A. Guccione, PT, PhD, DPT, FAPTA; Rita A. Wong EdD, PT; and Dale Aver, PT, DPT, Phd “Geriatric Physical Therapy” ©2012. Geriatric Physical Therapy offers a comprehensive presentation of geriatric physical therapy science and practice. Thoroughly revised and updated, this text provides current information on aging-related changes in function, the impact of these changes on patient examination and evaluation, and intervention approaches that maximize optimal aging. Chapters emphasize evidence-based content that clinicians can use throughout the patient management process. “Geriatric Physical Therapy” is clinically accurate and relevant while at the same time exploring theory and rationale for evidence-based practice.
