Course Description:  

The Otago Exercise Program (OEP) is an evidence-based falls prevention program developed in New Zealand and endorsed by the CDC for use in the United States in the home and/or community.   Therapists and exercise scientists trained in OEP can ensure program fidelity and effectiveness of intervention.  With the recent expansion of digital practice, there are even more ways to integrate Otago into community settings and reach more older adults at risk for falling. Join us for a dynamic, virtually interactive day of learning and creativity to improve the lives of older adults and expand the boundaries of our profession.
