This seminar provides a current update on the latest information on rehabilitation in the acute care setting. As in all practice settings, acute care rehabilitation is continuously evolving. From the various entry points into the acute care setting to discharge, rehabilitation plays an integral role. Therapists are being relied upon more and more to make significant contributions to the medical team, and frequently are the determining factor in hospital length of stay. This seminar is designed to give clinical information for therapists working in, or returning to working in the acute care setting. In addition, the seminar will offer practical tips and higher level problem solving skills that will benefit therapists working in this setting. The seminar will utilize lecture and case study to discuss the role of physical therapy in the acute care setting. Current literature review will be presented to lend strength to decision making in this challenging environment.
