Choose (and USE!) Effective Balance Outcome Measures

Balance is an area of assessment and treatment familiar to all practicing physical therapists and physical therapy assistants. Patients in pediatric, adult orthopedic and neurorehabilitation across facilities in acute, sub-acute, and outpatient settings will all be, at a minimum, screened for balance deficits. When a balance impairment is suspected, it may be challenging to know the best assessment tools and treatment interventions for the patient’s presentation. Assessment and treatment of balance is most effective when managed as a system, and components of the system are addressed in a systematic way to determine the underlying pathology or pathologies. 

This presentation is the second in a three-part series that discusses a systematic and evidence-based approach to assessing balance with use of the ICF model and evidence-based outcome measures. Learn how to choose (and use) effective balance outcome measures from an expert in the field of vestibular rehabilitation and outcome measurement, then use this knowledge with your patients the next day!

Participants need not have attended the prior session (Balance- More Than Just Standing On One Leg) to benefit from taking this course; the third part of the series will focus on using this systematic approach to create effective balance interventions.
