Course Description

This course is not offered for contact hours/CEUs.

There continues to be growing evidence demonstrating the connection between a person's overall state of health and their level of postural stability/balance. This supports the need for the use of an objective postural screening/monitoring tool as part of clinical practice. This course will provide guidance on posture/balance screening options, including the benefits and shortcomings of each, evidence to support each tool's use, and the current clinical research that is underway exploring new technologies, implementation, and clinical outcomes. This course is part of the Innovations in Clinical Settings Series.
