About the Webinar:

There has been emerging evidence about COVID-19 but no definitive resources on how to translate this evidence into clinical practice. This course will highlight the steps that one institution took to create an inpatient Clinical Standards of Care, for physical therapy and occupational therapy related to this new condition.     During this course, presenters will share emerging evidence from this updated resource which includes pathophysiology, cardiac and neurological considerations, common lab values, common images, and medical management of the patient with COVID-19. This information provides the foundation to their approach to evaluate and treat patients with COVID-19 and was incorporated in a clinical decision tree to assist with clinical reasoning in that facility for ICU and floor level patient care. Examples of workflows and interventions related to therapeutic intervention and education for patients and other bedside team members will be shared.

Objectives: 

  • Participants will be able to discuss considerations on creating institutional standard of care documents for an interdisciplinary team
  • Participants will be able to describe the pathophysiology of COVID-19, including the cardiac and neurologic effects.
  • Participants will be able to describe common lab values and medical management of patients diagnosed with COVID-19
  • Participants will be able to discuss operational aspects of managing patients diagnosed with COVID-19 based on best available evidence
