This intensive course will focus on evidence-based care and clinical problem-solving skills for complex pediatric patients who are acutely ill. The focus will be on critical thinking skills and practical real-world solutions to optimize the evaluation and treatment of pediatric patients from their arrival in the ED through discharge from the hospital.
Participants will develop skills to initiate rehabilitation interventions including early mobilization from the start of the hospital admission process. In addition, participants will learn to refine the discharge plan after the first encounter. Through case studies and group discussions, participants will develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills to optimize the patient experience in this complex and dynamic patient population.
At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Identify patient populations that may benefit from early assessment upon entrance to the hospital.
2. Select appropriate standardized assessments for a variety of patient populations.
3. Create dynamic functional goals for patients at all levels of their acute care stay
4. Generate effective treatment strategies for patients across a continuum of acuity, diagnoses, ages and developmental levels within the acute care setting
5. Practice how to set your patients up for success in the continuum of therapy upon discharge
This course is designed for PTs, PTAs, OTs and OTAs.
