NEW! Live Webinar for PTs, PTAs, OTs and COTAs interested in advancing practice in the Critical Care Patient Populations. Will focus on adult patients 18 years and older in the intensive care unit acute care setting and specifically when they are critically ill. One Day for 7 Contact Hours (.7 CEUs)
This course will go beyond the basic knowledge of evaluation and treatment of patients in the Critical Care Environment. It will focus on expanding the role of the therapist in the ICU setting and establish a knowledge base and treatment approach beyond mobility and exercise. The importance of utilizing a multi-professional team approach will be highlighted along with the value a therapist brings to this team. Current research and case examples will be utilized throughout. This course is applicable however to a large patient population of those who are or have been critically ill in their course.
At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the importance of a multi-professional approach with complex patients in the ICU and identify early predictors and indicators to assist the medical team in determining a patient’s projected course.
- Perform treatments for the critically ill beyond mobility and exercise prescription and create a plan for timing of treatment to illicit maximal function with patients who are medically complex.
- Utilize outcome measures and an evidence based approach to guide treatment and problem solving through patient cases.
- Justify their own “gut instincts” regarding projecting a patient course and how to assist the multi-professional team in higher level clinical decision making.
