Course Description:

In any acute or ICU setting, you’ve got to be ready to encounter any and everything when integrating rehab into the plan of care – particularly for patients with multiple traumatic injuries. From establishing early mobilization when treating multiple extremity injuries to managing lines/wires/tubes to discharge planning and billing correctly under the new guidelines – acute and ICU rehab can be overwhelming and quite stressful, even for the most seasoned clinician.

Gain the confidence you deserve in the hospital setting by exploring new interventions for improving functional mobility, independence, and outcomes with your most challenging patients. Even if you already use some of the techniques, this 2-day certificate course refines your skills and goes a long way in making your work more efficient and effective.

Designed for all practice levels, from the new grad to the veteran acute care practitioner, this hands-on certificate course will provide you with an updated knowledge base for making appropriate decisions within the ICU and acute care environments. Gain age-appropriate strategies on how to best evaluate and treat patients with specific injuries, including multiple extremities, TBI, axial skeleton injuries, burns, and gunshot wounds – from acute to post-acute phases.
