Prior to the online event, attendees are asked to read a selected article from the Journal of Geriatric Physical Therapy and an associated case study published in GeriNotes that illustrates how the study findings might be applied in clinical practice.

During the one-hour event, one of the study authors will present their study, with an emphasis on the clinical motivation for the study and the clinical application/impact of their findings. The clinician case study author will also participate to discuss the clinical application of the study findings as described in the case study.
