Learn how to work with this population and understand their special needs in this 12-hour online course. Through a combination of lecture and practice, you’ll gather the information necessary to make informed decisions about what to say/what not to say, what to include/exclude in a practice, and how to address common side effects. In this 12-hour course, you will learn:
