Course Description: This course will cover the multisystem adverse effects of critical illness and the impact the sequelae have on the rehabilitation process. The current philosophy is for early mobilization to decrease the rate of functional deficits and disability. In this medical model the therapist needs to have a sharp set of skills in assessment and optimal interventions given the activity tolerance of the patient. This course will discuss the interpretation of vital signs beyond the basics and system review as it relates to critical illness. The participants will gain a clinical decision framework to determine medical stability and exercise tolerance that will improve the exercise prescription of patients recovering from critical illness. This course will also focus on understanding dyspnea and fatigue which are two common barriers to activity tolerance. The participants will learn how to examine chest wall mechanics, breathing pattern, cough effectiveness and incorporate interventions to improve function. This course will explore the evidence for advanced intervention for patients on advanced medical support devices and who are suffering from the common iatrogenic effects of hospitalization. Participants will be engaged in a case study to discuss integration of clinical information and problem solving for a successful patient encounter. Course Objectives: Participants will be able to: • Integrate the medical and environmental of the ICU to promote an effective therapy session. • Apply current literature and trends to progress functional recovery for patients that suffer critical illness. • Apply basic exercise physiology principles to prescribe an effective exercise prescription • Implement an integrative rehabilitation plan to address pulmonary dysfunction. • Analyze the complexity of critical illness via a case scenario to develop an evaluation and intervention approach to provide comprehensive care. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Perhaps you’re watching your clients struggle with addiction, anxiety, or other mental health challenges, and your attempts to empower them to make positive changes in their lives feel like going into battle. You feel like you’re working harder than your client, and you feel like they resist everything. You can make a significant, positive impact on your clients’ lives with Motivational Interviewing. Motivational interviewing (MI) has emerged over the past three decades as a leading approach for addressing a core clinical concern – motivation. When mastered, this evidence-based approach is highly effective in motivating positive change. Better still, motivational interviewing can be used regardless of diagnosis and in conjunction with other treatment approaches. Chris Wagner, Ph.D., motivational interviewing trainer and author, will teach you the skills you need to know to successfully help these clients. You’ll learn how the MI process works, how to help your clients resolve ambivalence about change, and how to effectively respond to resistance in clients. You’ll leave this seminar confident and with the strategies you need to treat your clients with depression, anxiety disorders, addictive behaviors and other clinical issues. Escape the pattern of struggling with clients, and instead evoke your clients’ own motivation to change! Objectives: • Describe how to combine person-centered and strategic components to improve clinical outcomes using MI in a positive and supportive way. • Model how the four processes and OARs skills of MI help reduce client ambivalence and empower change. • Explore ways to elicit, recognize and respond to “change talk” to improve treatment outcomes. • Develop clinical strategies for working effectively with clients who are resistant to change. • Explain ways that MI can enhance the effectiveness of other existing therapeutic approaches. • Choose how to effectively use MI to help alleviate symptoms of anxiety, depression and addictive behaviors.
