OTP 542 — Sensorimotor Components of Living III
The third course in the sensorimotor series focuses on assessment and treatment of the geriatric population. Theories of aging are introduced and used to adapt occupational therapy interventions learned in OTP 540 and 541 to the unique needs of older adults. Additional issues unique to the again population are addressed, including Medicare, aging in place, falls, driving and community mobility, and endof- life issues. The etiology, signs, symptoms, and medical management of disorders typically seen in a geriatric population will also be covered. The use of client-centered practice and meaningful occupation will be emphasized.
