2015 Irma Ruebling Distinguished Speaker Series

Monday, February 2, 2015

Saint Louis University Will Be Hosting The CEEAA Course Series!

The popular CEEAA Course Series is now scheduled in  Saint Louis, MO in 2015!


Evidence for the benefits of effective exercise programs for the full spectrum of aging adults is overwhelmingly positive. The unique role of the physical therapist in providing these programs is unequivocal. Further education can enhance the ability of physical therapists to incorporate evidence into practice in order to appropriately examine and provide the quality of exercise that will yield optimal benefits for the aging adult. The Section on Geriatrics, in adopting the position that physical therapists should be the exercise experts for aging adults, will be a leader in providing physical therapists with a mechanism to develop and demonstrate expertise in the design and delivery of effective exercise programs for aging adults.

All PTs with the CEEAA credential will demonstrate expert clinical decision-making skills in (1) designing and applying an effective examination and exercise prescription and (2) measuring the effectiveness and reflecting the current evidence of exercise for all aging adults. The process to attain the credential of "Certified Exercise Expert for Aging Adults" is to complete formal didactic education, and to participate in supervised and mentored skills development, home-based reflection, and critical thinking. Three courses of two days each will address evidence-based examination and different and increasingly complex aspects of exercise design and delivery. The three courses are designed to build on each other; however, Courses 1 and 2 can be taken out of sequence.


 

Missouri dates are as follows:

 

Course 1: May 30-31, 2015
Course 2: July 18-19, 2015
Course 3: October 24-25, 2015
All courses will be held at Saint Louis University.
