EIM’s Management of Falls and Balance Disorders course is designed to enhance the participant’s knowledge and skill level in the evidence-based management of individuals with neurologic disorders and those who are at increased risk for falls. This lab intensive course focuses on the clinical reasoning and hands-on problem solving necessary to effectively integrate evidence-based screening, assessment, intervention, and management techniques into the clinical management of these individuals. Participants will work as teams to assess their current treatment practices. They will develop plans to implement evidence-based practice into their patient management plans. Barriers and facilitators to implementation will be discussed and resources in the community identified. Students will complete the course with a quality improvement project which can be used in their clinical practice.
