As the healthcare world continues to evolve, patients are moving through the acute care setting at a faster rate with insurance companies approving less post acute rehab stays in facilities. This poses multiple issues for the therapy provider as they are continually challenged to evaluate and treat patients and make the appropriate recommendation to transition the patient to the next level of care in as little as 30 minutes. Sometimes they only get a small handful of sessions to make an impact before they leave the hospital. New and seasoned therapists struggle with the ever-changing complexities of acute care, insurance ins and outs, and critical, clinical, real-time decision making skills to make the appropriate recommendation. As clinical decision making is a hard topic to teach, it is something that a lot of clinicians learn through trial and error in the early years of their career. In this course, you will learn about common road blocks therapists encounter in the hospital setting and how to make the right decision, quickly and confidently.
