The content in this online conference "updates what we know about changes in human function over the life span and expands upon important concepts regarding patient choice and the ethics of clinical decision-making when working with older adults. It enables clinicians to look at the broader picture when attributing actual, and not just perceived, risk in complex older patients." —James Coyle, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
