Falls are a major cause of morbidity and serious health issues in older adults that can have devastating outcomes. Using real-world cases and audience participation, this lecture will discuss a hands-on approach to identifying fall risks, preventing falls, assessing patients post-fall, and treating older adults. Office-based balance and gait assessments that can be conducted in small spaces will be demonstrated. Evidence will be presented about updated recommendations on fall treatments, including simple recommendations to multi-level interventions that improve the care of older adults. Advice on selecting the right durable medical equipment (e.g., canes, walkers, rollators, wheelchairs, and scooters) and measuring for the correct size equipment will be provided. Very few people outlive their canes so many older adult patients use hand-me-downs, resulting in poor posture, gait instability, and additional falls. After attending this lecture, you will understand how to best care for your older adult patients who are prone to fall.

By determining the target of inflammation in the joint and the distribution of affected joints, a clinician can distinguish among non-inflammatory arthritis (osteoarthritis), other non-inflammatory rheumatic conditions (like fibromyalgia), and inflammatory conditions such as inflammatory synovitis (rheumatoid arthritis) and inflammatory enthesitis (ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis).
