NEW! Live Webinar for Therapists. One Session for 3 Contact Hours (.3 CEUs)
- Thursday, August 20, 2020 6:30pm-9:30pm US EST
This course will provide therapists with assessment and intervention strategies to promote optimal functional cognitive recovery and outcomes in the ICU and acute care setting. Emerging evidence suggests that early cognitive intervention in acute care significantly reduces delirium incidence and duration as well as the adverse effects of surviving critical illness. This course will provide knowledge and tools for assessing, monitoring or improving key cognitive abilities in critically ill and acute care patients. A framework for integrating cognitive activities into the medical ICU and acute care environment will be discussed within the context of a team approach. Case examples including those with COVID-19 will be presented, and participants will be asked to apply knowledge and methods to case scenarios throughout the presentation.
- Describe the effects of delirium and critical illness on outcomes
- Choose delirium assessments, mini cognitive screenings, and cognitive functional assessments suitable for the acute care environment.
- Implement strategies to engage families of critically ill patients in treatment that supports cognitive functioning.
- Implement an early cognitive rehabilitation program for critically ill adults using a framework for ICU cognitive interventions and activities
- Apply how to select and tailor a wide range of cognitive functional activities in acute care, so they are at an optimal level of challenge for the client
- Design treatments to simultaneously address both physical and cognitive goals within the acute care environment.
- Develop strategies for team coordination and collaboration in addressing cognitive symptoms and for optimal discharge planning
- Discuss emerging evidence that supports early cognitive intervention in critically ill patients
