Course Description

Designed for rehabilitation professionals who want to elevate their clinic skill set in the management of older adults.  The size of this population is growing rapidly, unfortunately the desire to manage them with cutting edge evidence guided treatment has lagged well behind.  Too often we see our older adults getting under treated, both with exercise and manual therapy, apparently as a consequence of both fear and ignorance.

Take a deep dive into exploring myths and misconceptions of aging while laying out a clear current best evidence pathway to enable our older adults to not only survive but to thrive.  A special emphasis is placed on progressive functional fitness in this population to stave off functional decline.

Speaker Biographies

Christina finished her Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from the University of Toronto in 2007 and graduated with her Masters of Physiotherapy from McMaster University in 2013. She is a firm believer in the strength of exercise for rehabilitation, especially with older adults. She began her PhD in 2015 in the Faculty of Health Sciences at McMaster University. Her doctoral research looks at the utilization of strength training principles for healthy aging and   prevention of disability.

She runs and operates STAVEOFF Physiotherapy and Exercise Facility in Kingston, Ontario in Canada with her husband, Nick.

Dustin is a Home Health Physical Therapist with a background in sports and orthopedics. He received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2011 from the University of Kentucky and went on to become a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), Russian Kettlebell Instructor (RKC-1), and CrossFit Level 1 Trainer (CF-L1).

He blends what he has learned working with athletic populations to help older patients improve their function. The creator of GEROS Health, Dustin has been a key voice in shifting attention towards elevating the quality of care, and more specifically in many cases the intensity of care, that we deliver to aging adults.
