Clinical Implications of Pharmacology for Therapists Working with Older Adults

Kenneth L. Miller, PT, DPT, GCS, CEEAA


Course Description

Have you ever wanted to be better prepared to deal with the effects of medications on your patients?

Medications have both positive and negative effects on a patientís ability to function. Therapists need to be able to effectively evaluate and treat patients whether their medications are assisting or interfering with the patientís ADLís and IADLís. The purpose of this seminar is to provide participants with the information required to incorporate pharmacology and medication management into practice with the older adult. The seminar format includes interactive lecture; small group discussion; incorporating video and case scenarios to demonstrate medication assessment, management and education. Participants will translate pharmacology knowledge into practice to effectively assess and treat patients while maintaining patient safety. Participants will learn techniques to help monitor patients for intended effects, untoward effects, and side effects in order to assist physicians and nurses with safe medication use, medication adherence and reduce hospitalizations related to adverse drug events. Evidence-based resources and tools will be provided to participants to improve safe medication use. The course manual is comprehensive including both print and electronic resources for uses immediately in practice. The participant will take home quick examination tools to identify pharmacology issues in minutes.
