5th Annual Johns Hopkins Critical Care Rehabilitation Conference

5th Annual Johns Hopkins Critical Care Rehabilitation Conference
Interdisciplinary collaboration and coordination is vital to facilitate early mobility and rehabilitation in the intensive care unit (ICU) setting. A recent stakeholders’ conference aimed at improving long-term outcomes for ICU survivors identified important ‘silos’ among critical care and rehabilitation clinicians working in the ICU, with these ‘silos’ acting as a barrier to collaboratively advancing the field and improving patient outcomes. While clinical trials support the benefits of early rehabilitation for mechanically ventilated patients, implementing these interventions requires creating a new ICU culture based on proactive rehabilitation and interdisciplinary collaboration between all critical care and rehabilitation clinicians. This course will bridge the interdisciplinary gap from research to clinical implementation at the bedside

• Explain medications commonly used in the ICU and their implications for delivery of rehabilitation.
• Describe the basics of mechanical ventilation and its relevance to rehabilitation of the ICU patient.
• Explain rehabilitation-related assessments suitable for the ICU patient.
• Discuss how to achieve a culture of mobility through hospital-wide activity and mobility promotion.
• Describe the impact and challenges of ICU survivorship on patients and their families.
