Maximizing Outcomes for Survivors of Critical Illness: Research and Practice

Date: Wed. Jan. 23, 2019

Time: 8:00 AM - 5:30 PM 

Location: Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Room: 240B

Speakers:

Angela Henning, PT, MSPT 
Megan Hosey, PhD 
Kirby Mayer, PT, DPT 
Ashley Montgomery-Yates, MD 
Peter Morris, MD 
Selina Parry, PT, PhD 

Session Type: Pre-Conference Courses

Session Level: Intermediate

Description: Attendees will learn a holistic approach to treating patients surviving critical illness. The presenters will review the current literature on critical illness, including the burden of post-ICU syndrome, and elucidate the purpose and implementation of rehabilitation interventions. The course will focus on treatment and interventions in the hospital, during inpatient rehabilitation, at home, and in the outpatient clinic. Leaders in the field will discuss transitions of care, treatment across the continuum, and appropriate times/frequency of follow-up. The speakers will address medical and rehabilitative topics such as maximizing functional mobility and independence, nutritional demand, treating long-term cognitive dysfunction, and anxiety/depression. A significant portion of the presentation will be devoted to cognitive and psychological interventions. The presenters will explore the safety, feasibility, and dosing of interventions. A critical care psychologist will lead a discussion on interventions such as support dogs, involving the family, and ICU diaries to improve outcomes. Along with focusing on interventions, presenters will provide case studies and images/videos to engage clinicians. This course will emphasize improving the physical therapy treatment approach from the ICU to outpatient with the primary goal of stimulating physical therapists in all settings.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Describe and critically appraise landmark publications on survivors of critical illness and understand the importance of physical therapy across the continuum, including ICU, acute, inpatient rehab, and home health to maximize function, decrease readmission rates, and improve quality of life.

2. Synthesize when and how to implement rehabilitation, highlighting interventions to maximize function, such as muscular power training, as well as interventions to improve cognition and emotional deficits.

3. Distinguish when (timing and appropriate patient population) to administer interventions and appraise when a referral is warranted.

4. Describe the importance of a comprehensive approach to treating patients recovering from critical illness with the focus on rehabilitation, medical, and emotional/cognition and to explain the essential steps for implementation of an ICU follow-up clinic addressing ongoing medical, physical, emotional, and cognitive impairments.

5. Describe the central purpose of rehabilitation practice and provide examples of interventions for survivors in the home health and outpatient settings.

6. Critically appraise and develop solutions for complications of treating survivors; specifically, how to engage the interdisciplinary team and advocate for your patients to maximize their function and quality of life.

My Patient is in ICU: Now What? Untangling the Wires and Navigating Critical Care

Date: Wed. Jan. 23, 2019

Time: 8:00 AM - 5:30 PM 

Location: Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Room: 204C

Speakers:

  Jamie Dyson, PT, DPT 
  Tompkins James, PT DPT 
  Kimberly Levenhagen, PT, DPT 
  Traci Norris, PT, DPT, Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Geriatric Physical Therapy 
  Kathy Swanick, PT, DPT, Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Orthopaedic Physical Therapy 

Session Type: Pre-Conference Courses

Session Level: Intermediate

Description:
Acute care physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) have been showing their value in the critical care setting and the importance of early mobility. The difficulty comes in integrating the critical illness aspects of care, as well as the various wires and tubes, into the movement system. It can be challenging to make clinical decisions regarding mobility if there is not complete understanding of the monitors, pharmacology, and goals of critical care. PTs and PTAs need to demonstrate competency in their personal areas of practice, and the intensive care unit (ICU) requires a unique set of competencies of those working in this area. Each PT is expected to integrate all aspects of critical care medicine to anticipate medical conditions which may affect safe intervention. As early mobilization becomes a reality in all patient populations, PTs and PTAs need to recognize clinical implications and how to modify the plan of care accordingly. Through lecture, cases, and quizzes, attendees will recognize the importance of understanding the critical care treatment and the implications for promoting safe and effective care and improving human movement.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Recognize the importance of understanding the patient's critical condition prior to initiating an examination/intervention.

2. Describe the clinical considerations related to abnormal physiological and hemodynamic indicators.

3. Classify lines, tubes, and machines that are pertinent to physical therapy professionals and their implications for the movement system in the ICU.

4. Appropriately dose intervention and identify absolute parameters for therapeutic participation.
