Upon completion, participants will be able to:
1. Compare and contrast ways to creatively
progress sit to stand movement task/training
and educate patients and caregivers regarding
the concepts of base of support and center of
gravity to increase independence with transfers.
2. Identify two assessments that can be used as fall
risk assessments and indicate cutoff scores for
fall risk in the identified assessments.
3. Explain the rationale for utilizing hand-held
dynamometry over manual muscle testing.
4. Compare methods of strength training in older
5. Delineate the steps in calculating 1RM using the
6. Discuss treatment progression and monitoring
for functional training of a hip fracture patient.
Part 1 (90 minutes) The therapist assesses patient
initially in the patient’s room, takes a comprehensive
medical history and establishes baseline
measurements. Then the combination evaluation
and first day treatment will continue in the gym with
calculation of a 1 RM and a type 1 and type 2
strength training program. Functional sit to standing,
balance progression and measurement are
demonstrated as well as other therapeutic exercises,
activities and neuromuscular re-education.
Part 2 (60 minutes) The second visit will include
further testing deemed appropriate and necessary,
as well as the progression of some of the exercises
presented day one. Stair climbing and balance
deficit training will be shown and progressed, in
addition to trunk stabilization and home program

Carolyn Padalino takes a patient, who has multiple diagnoses, including hip fracture, through initial evaluation and two treatment sessions. Watch closely as she works with a real patient to demonstrate patient intake, exercise programming, progression and patient monitoring. In the second half of the course, you will review the evaluation and treatment sessions while Carolyn explains her clinical decision-making and expands on why the research-based interventions she chose were the most appropriate. This commentary is led by Carole B. Lewis, PT, DPT, GCS, GTC, CCOEE, MPA, MSG, PhD, FAPTA with input from Keith Screen, MS, OTR. The discussion is packed with evidence based suggestions and support.
