« back to classes page
Course Description:

Acute care physical therapy represents a unique specialty practice where physical therapists and physical therapist assistants are actively collaborating with an array of providers. Patients in this setting are in medically compromised conditions across the lifespan and often multiple diagnoses and body systems are involved. With alternative payment models, shorter hospital lengths of stay, early mobility programs, and consultations in the emergency department, physical therapists are being relied upon more and more to make significant contributions to the medical team.
This seminar is designed to convey the knowledge, skills, and abilities required of acute care physical therapists and physical therapist assistants and to address the latest information regarding hospital regulation, policy, and payment. Utilizing multimedia, lecture, and case study clinical information and practical tips will be delivered to therapists working in, returning to, or looking to enter the acute care setting. Whenever available, current evidence will be presented to support clinical decision making.
