Benjamin White
Connecting Brain to Body: Neurological Trauma, Challenging Behaviors, and Early Interventions
Dr. Benjamin White, PT, DPT | Click here for information about Benjamin White

Patients who have experienced a stroke, brain injury, or related neurologic event are in a sensitive position in the acute stage of recovery and healing. Doing too much can produce life-altering implications, and doing too little can delay recovery and create future barriers in achieving functional independence. Getting the balance right is critical. Join Dr. Benjamin White and discover the latest evidence on early mobilization following a neurological event. Review important Clinical Practice Guidelines and safety considerations when working with this patient population. Unlock effective interventions to enhance neuroplasticity, gait training, balance, coordination, and much more!

Kiplee Bell
Polypharmacy and Delirium: Impaired Mobility for the Geriatric Patient
Kiplee Bell, MD, PA | Click here for information about Kiplee Bell

Join Dr. Kiplee Bell and discover the most common causes leading to acute delirium and impaired mobility. With a concise review of the body system and metabolic causes, you'll analyze the influence of polypharmacy on the geriatric patient population. Discover causative effects on — balance, cognition, fall risks, functional independence, and safety. Enhance your clinical proficiency with evidence-based strategies for everything from effective communication, early identification, goal planning, and MORE!

Jerome Quellier
Reimagining Speech, Swallowing, and Mobility in Critical Care Settings
Jerome Quellier, MS, SLP-CCC | Click here for information about Jerome Quellier

Critically ill patients in my instance are reliant upon tracheostomies/vent dependency to maintain stability. Both of which can lead to complications for speech, swallowing, respiration, and mobility. Early therapy is pivotal to lead these patients to the recovery they desire. Unlock the most current evidence-based interventions for — dysphagia, communication, aspiration, mobility, and more. AND refresh your knowledge of important equipment and proper placement to always be prepared for any rehab treatment.

Molly Rejent
The importance of positioning, play and purpose for children in the PICU
Molly Rejent, MOT, OTR/L | Click here for information about Molly Rejent

When babies and children find themselves in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, the tendency can be to 'allow them to rest to heal.' While there is truth in this ideal, oftentimes movement and basic activities are actually what can lead them on the path to healing more quickly. Even in illness, kids should be kids and be allowed to express this in different ways. In this session, you will learn the value of these ideals through tangible and experiential case studies.

Keeping Patients Off the Floor: Identifying Fall Risk and Preventing Falls in Aging Adults Throughout the Continuum of Care
Debra Stern, PT, DPT, DBA, CLT, CEEAA, CFPS | Click here for information about Debra Stern

This session will provide insight into identification of potential patient fall risk factors throughout the continuum of care. As falls have been identified by the CDC as a public health challenge, costing aging individuals their independence and quality of life, and related healthcare costs upwards of $50 billion dollars for non-fatal falls, fall prevention has become a nationally recognized initiative. Participants will learn how to integrate approaches to facilitate prevention of falls through appropriate patient management including screening, intervention, and referral.
Navigating Pain Management and Sedation Levels in the Critical Care Environment
Danielle Dunwoody, PhD, RN | Click here for information about Danielle Dunwoody

Balancing analgesia and sedation for critically ill patients is challenging and we still see a discrepancy in the approach to sedation of critically ill patients. How do we avoid negative acute and long-term consequences of untreated pain and agitation? In this session, Dr. Dunwoody will help you understand how to provide safe care to when patients are provided analgesia and sedation to prevent pain and anxiety, permit invasive procedures, reduce stress and oxygen consumption, and improve synchrony with mechanical ventilation. Regional preferences, patient assessment and history, unique critical care challenges, and individual patient needs will be discussed. A review of how pain and sedation translate to practice will help you provide safe and quality care to your ill patients.
Emerging and Current Infectious Diseases in the Critical Care Setting
Paul Langlois, APN, PhD, CCRN, CCNS | Click here for information about Paul Langlois

Since the beginning of the 21st century, we have seen novel infectious diseases and infectious diseases not endemic to the US manifest themselves in an explosive way. The daily news programs and the internet are providing sometimes overwhelming information that is often inadequate in scope.

In this session, Paul Langlois, APN, PhD, CCRN, CCNS, will provide the latest guidelines and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) on current infectious diseases affecting our patients: SARS-CoV2/COVID-19; Mpox; hepatitis-A, -B and -C; tuberculosis, and Influenza. In addition to history and physical assessment findings, Paul will also highlight recognition methods, FDA-approved and investigational medications and, where indicated, vaccines. Case studies will solidify learning objectives.
Wound Prevention and Management: An Integrated Approach to Patient-Centered Care
Jeanine Maguire, MPT, CWS | Click here for information about Jeanine Maguire

Chronic wounds are increasing in parallel with population aging and no single discipline has the breadth of skillset needed to recognize the risk factors, the wound types, or the evidence-based management strategies. Further, working through the lens of patient-centered care means that not all 'wounds' can heal, but we can strive to heal the person with the wound. This session will provide participants with the ability to understand the risk factors of chronic wounds and non-healing, and recognize the most common chronic wound types, like pressure injuries, lower extremity arterial wounds, venous leg ulcers, and neuropathic ulcers. Further, basic interventions and treatment pathways will be discussed and considered within the lens of patient-centered care. This session will provide participants with the tools to empower team collaboration and ultimately implement patient centered-wound care.
