Course Synopsis

This innovative and practical weekend seminar will present an overview of unique aspects of treating the older adult. It will include a discussion on the importance of history taking in the potentially cognitively impaired older adult. In addition we will discuss the importance and practical logistics of asking “systems based questions” that may be difficult in this complex population. We will also review the unique physical examination considerations in the older adult and also expound on our experience from the unique nursing home environment. We will then discuss the unique challenges of developing an appropriate assessment/differential diagnosis. In addition we will also talk about co-morbid and complicating psychosocial factors (especially important is the fear avoidance). Finally we will spend time talking about practical solutions to treatment in this population specifically considerations including the role of SMT in the older adult, including the frail older adult.
