New CE Webinar Focuses on an Evidence-Based Approach for Improving Mobility

Dan Ciolek

AHCA has a new webinar available titled Getting Older is not for the Weak: An Evidence-Based Approach for Improving Mobility that offers 1.25 CEs upon successful completion of a short quiz at the conclusion of the webinar.

In this training module, the RESTORE team, a collaborative group of researchers, educators, and professionals within the University of Colorado Physical Therapy Program, will share an approach for helping providers integrate the latest evidence-based rehabilitation strategies into routine practice.

The Getting Older is not for the Weak session is free with a PDPM Academy 2020 subscription.  AHCA SNF provider members can still register for the AHCA PDPM Academy 2020 Subscription – Building Optimal Operational Capacities©.  This exclusive “SNF provider member only” subscription package includes:

  • Seven pre-recorded one-hour educational webinars with 1.25 NAB continuing education (CE) credits and accompanied by AHCA-developed guidance toolkits and other resources covering these topics:
    • Holistic person-centered care planning
    • Evidence-based approaches for improving mobility
    • Effective care transitions at admission and discharge
    • Trend Tracker and other sources to monitor the quality impact of PDPM
    • Managing residents with complex nursing and NTA needs

The 2020 subscription fee is $299 per individual and is available only to AHCA SNF provider members (or individual contracted employees if registering through the AHCA provider member).  The materials, toolkits, forums and webinars in the AHCA PDPM Academy 2020 Subscription package come from the nation’s top experts and are hundreds of dollars less than what private consultants are charging.
