NBCOT professional development provider - 14 PDU's Course Description: This intensive course will focus on evidence-based care and clinical problem-solving skills for complex pediatric patients who are acutely ill. 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. For each clinical problem area addressed, the following will be discussed: • Clinical assessment • Standardized tests • Key interventions and relative precautions • EBP • Caregiver education • Equipment/DME • Discharge Cases will be discussed and analyzed, and the following areas will be discussed: • Where do you start? What information do you need to begin working with the patient? • What would you prioritize to assess in your initial evaluation? • Would you mobilize this patient? • What type of frequency would be appropriate for this patient? • What other teams should be consulted for this patient? • What are your discharge recommendations? Course Objectives: At the completion of this course the participants will be able to: • Identify patient populations that may benefit from early assessment upon entrance to the hospital. • Select appropriate standardized assessments for a variety of patient populations. • Create dynamic functional goals for patients at all levels of their acute care stay. • Generate effective treatment strategies for patients across a continuum of acuity, diagnoses, ages and developmental levels within the acute care setting. • Practice how to set your patients up for success in the continuum of therapy upon discharge.

Course Description: Do you have a caseload full of children who refuse to eat because of sensory challenges, food sensitivities, behaviors, or even no apparent reason? This course addresses the growing problem of food refusals and nutritional deficiencies from a revolutionary new perspective and focuses on self-regulation, socio-cultural, and emotional perspectives while incorporating conventional nutrition, oral-motor skills, sensory processing and behavioral techniques. Susan’s highly successful, integrative approach integrates body, mind and spirit and uses play, the primary occupation of childhood, as a focal point to improve outcomes and plot a course to happier and healthier mealtimes. The seminar format involves extensive case problem solving and participants will apply the provided tools to their own clients. These tools include: structured observations of play and mealtime behaviors; food journals for nutrition, sensory, and food sensitivities; functional, measurable performance objectives aligned with academic goals; and play based mealtime implementation strategies. The participant will be able to: • Discuss commonalities in the development of play, emotional intelligence, and mealtime skills. • Identify common medical conditions associated with food refusals and the research-based evidence that needs to guide mealtime interventions. • Compare and differentiate a child's current food choices for nutritional value and sensory preference. • Generate plans for successfully introducing new and nourishing foods to develop epigentic resilience to disease. • Design therapeutic interventions that motivate and reward expanded food choices and the development of competent eating skills via the gut-brain connection.
