Target Audience:
This program is appropriate for speech language pathologists who work with geriatric patients and are interested in gaining new perspectives on geriatric treatment from our clinical counterparts.

Overview:
Geriatric Rehabilitation is most successful when clinicians use a multidisciplinary approach. This workshop will discuss discipline specific challenges, strategies for success and priorities of geriatric rehab from the perspective of a physician, a social worker, a dietitian and a physical therapist. This multidisciplinary workshop will enhance the speech pathologist's clinical management for this unique population.
