CEU Course Description
This CE course details the concurrent validity of the Balance Outcome Measure for Elder Rehabilitation (BOOMER) while investigating balance, mobility, and perceived confidence to undertake daily activities experienced by patients at discharge from an Internal Medicine Unit, and seeks to determine if there are differences between patients discharged to rehabilitation to those discharged to their usual residence.
The article for this course is from Physiotherapy New Zealand, www.physiotherapy.org.nz, as first published in the New Zealand Journal of Physiotherapy.
