EXHS 279 Aging, Health, and Functional Assessment (4)
This course will be a study of age-related physical, psychological, and social changes that occur during the older adult years, their interrelationship with health and physical activity, and their application to assessment of physical function. Additionally, this course will examine and conduct functional tests commonly used with older adults, including those that are novel or in development. The research foundations and effectiveness of such assessments will be examined, and their appropriate use and interpretation will be practiced with older adult volunteers from the surrounding community.
