This course is designed to enhance the clinical decision-making skills of participants for early mobilization and safe, effective treatment of acutely ill patients. As more patients survive critical illnesses, intervention must complement the highly technologic, life-saving medical therapies, regardless of practice setting. Discussion of lines, physiologic monitors, lab values, and diagnostic test results will focus on implications for treatment. This evidence-based course will highlight a multisystem approach to the acutely ill patient. Participants will integrate examination findings into individualized care plans that can be implemented from ICU and across acute care and post-acute practice settings.
