Live Educational Webinar

March 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Topic: Aging Process and Disabilities

Speaker: Dr. Julia Hiner, M.D.

Time: 1:00pm – 3:00pm

Credits:
2.0 CEU
2.0 MCLE

Description:
The presenter will analyze how the normal aging involves complex physiologic and psychologic changes throughout the body, which although fairly predictable across populations, are experienced in less homogenous ways by individuals. Unlike in cognitive disability, normal aging allows preservation of cognitive function and independence, without eventual incapacity. However, in cognitive disability of neurologic, cognitive, and psychiatric causes, there is a high degree of variability in long-term outcomes. The presenter will explore normal aging versus cognitive disability, the prognoses of common cognitive disabilities, the treatments and supports needed to achieve optimal outcomes, and the likelihood of capacity restoration with guardianship reversal. After completing this session, attendees will be better able to recognize normal and abnormal aging, anticipate long-term courses of common causes of incapacity and guardianship, and maximize a person’s opportunities for independent function and capacity restoration.
