Presented by Erick Heck, PTA, BA; Michael Pechulis, PT, DPT; Sara Schwalm, PT, DPT

Sponsored by the Penn State Hazleton PTA Program

Location
Penn State Hazleton
Gram Building Room G-115

76 University Drive
Hazleton, PA 18202

About the Course
In the intensive care unit of an acute care setting, early mobilization and rehabilitation of critically ill patients has been demonstrated to decrease a patient's overall length of stay in the intensive care unit (ICU), hospital length of stay, and potentially cost of care. Early intervention by rehabilitation specialists initiates the discharge planning process and decreases the risk of ICU acquired complications for critically ill patients.

Using evidenced-based practice, we will spend time introducing the decision-making process for evaluating and treating critically ill patients by utilizing a PT and PTA team approach to provide effective interventions within the intensive care unit setting.

This course is designed for PTs and PTAs who have, or are, treating in the acute care setting, but any clinician regardless of discipline (including PT/PTA students) may benefit from the information presented.
