The latest techniques to – reduce the length of ICU stays,
promote early recovery, and regain function for critically ill patients

It's been two weeks post stroke – with everything from pain, weakness, bed bathing, urinary catheters, and feeding assistance – your patient is desperate to feel some sense of normalcy again… and YOU hold the key to their recovery.

Nothing compares to the flood of emotions when you assist that patient to stand for the first time. You get to see the hope in their eyes, as their family members glow with gratitude. This is the true power of early mobility for critical care patients.

But it's not an easy task. You're faced with altered cognition, rapidly changing vitals, unpredictable behaviors, anguished family members, and a slew of lines, wires, drains, and tubes to navigate. Your patient is counting on YOU to gain the strength and function they need to recover… and getting a single detail wrong can have life-altering consequences.

Unwind the complexities of critical care and continue to be the clinician your patients can depend on. Join us for the Critical Care Rehab Summit and learn the newest evidence and best rehab practices to provide safe and effective early mobility to critical care patients.

This comprehensive 2-day live virtual training provides essential interventions and proven mobility strategies for the whole Acute Care team!

No matter your discipline – you'll learn powerful NEW skills to improve patient outcomes and return them to their pre-illness level of function. With information on…

  • ABCDEF Bundle
  • Dysphagia
  • Polypharmacy
  • Stroke rehab
  • Delirium
  • Peds rehab

with Dr. Benjamin White, PT, DPT, C/NDT | 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 to achieving functional independence. Getting the balance right is critical.

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!

Reimagining Speech, Swallowing, and Mobility in Critical Care Settings
with Jerome Quellier, MS, SLP-CCC | Click here for information about Jerome Quellier
Critically ill patients in my instances 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

The Importance of Positioning, Play and Purpose for Babies and Children
in The PICU

with 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.

The learning doesn't stop live! Including up to 15 Self-Study CE Hours included with this Summit!

Acute Care & ICU Rehab: Strategies for the Medically Complex Patient
Explore the latest interventions for improving functional mobility, strength, independence, and outcomes in acute care rehab. Designed for all practice levels, from the new grad to the veteran acute care professional, this hands-on course will provide you with an updated knowledge base for making appropriate decisions within the ICU and acute care environments, implementing assessment and treatment tools, integrating existing treatment plans with progression into the plan of care, and adjust or accommodate treatment interventions across the hospital stay through the transition out of the hospital.
Discover new treatments for:
  • Early mobilization
  • Management of lines, wires, and tubes
  • Respiratory distress
  • Intubation/Vent dependency

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
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 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; Monkeypox; 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
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, recognized 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.
