Nov 01 - 03, 2018 | CME 20.50 | Baltimore, Maryland
Seventh Annual Johns Hopkins Critical Care Rehabilitation Conference is organized by Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM) and will be held during Nov 01 - 03, 2018 at Turner Auditorium, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, Respiratory Therapists, Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, and Psychologists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 20.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Conference Description : Interdisciplinary collaboration and coordination is vital to facilitate early mobility and rehabilitation in the intensive care unit (ICU) setting. A recent stakeholders’ conference aimed at improving long-term outcomes for ICU survivors identified important ‘silos’ among critical care and rehabilitation clinicians working in the ICU, with these ‘silos’ acting as a barrier to collaboratively advancing the field and improving patient outcomes. While clinical trials support the benefits of early rehabilitation for mechanically ventilated patients, implementing these interventions requires creating a new ICU culture based on proactive rehabilitation and interdisciplinary collaboration between all critical care and rehabilitation clinicians. This course will bridge the interdisciplinary gap from research to clinical implementation at the bedside. Objectives : • Appraise the evidence supporting early rehabilitation and mobility in critically ill adults and children. • Describe and discuss how to change ICU clinical practice to implement early rehabilitation programs for critically ill adults, children, and infants using a quality improvement framework. • Describe the management of ICU medications, devices (including mechanical ventilation and tracheostomy), and monitoring systems for rehabilitation of adult and pediatric ICU patients. • Explain rehabilitation related assessments and interventions suitable for adult and pediatric ICU and acute care patients. • Explain the principles of clinical decision making for safe and effective early rehabilitation in the ICU. • Describe strategies to engage critically ill patients and their families for activity and mobility. • Explain the tenets and methods of a structured quality improvement process for developing and implementing an early rehabilitation program in the adult and pediatric ICU, and the acute care setting. • Describe the impact and challenges of ICU survivorship on patients and their families. • Explain current practice and interdisciplinary roles of nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, respiratory therapy, and child life specialists in an adult and pediatric ICU rehabilitation program. • Describe disease-specific rehabilitation strategies for critically ill patients. • Explain communication strategies for adult and pediatric ICU patients. • Describe an approach to feeding in pediatric ICU populations. • Describe the management of sedation and delirium for adult and pediatric patients to promote ICU mobility. • Evaluate the rationale, barriers, and evidence for ICU diaries to improve psychological outcomes.
