High Intensity Physical Rehabilitation In Medically Complex Populations

When: Ongoing


Members: $495 | Non-Members: $595

About This Event

The American Health Care Association and the University of Colorado (CU) RESTORE Team are pleased to offer High Intensity Physical Rehabilitation In Medically Complex Populations.

Many older adults are at risk for functional decline due to underlying medical complexity, as well as deconditioning following a bout of inpatient care. This course will present an evidenced-based approach for the implementation of a high intensity progressive rehabilitation paradigm, offered as an evolution of current, lower intensity post-acute treatment approaches to address this constellation of needs. Rehabilitation professionals (Physical Therapist & Physical Therapist Assistant; Occupational Therapist & Occupational Therapy Assistant) will have access to an interactive multimedia learning experience including responsive, self-paced presentation of foundational concepts, simulated case scenarios, and a moderated discussion environment for learning with fellow clinicians – all informed by the latest learning science and innovative technology.

Course Goals

This course is designed to:

  • Inform evidence-based decision-making driven by high intensity principles
  • Provide practical tools for immediate integration of high intensity approaches into daily clinical practice
  • Empower learners with the confidence to update their current practice paradigm in the post-acute setting

Course Objectives

By the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Screen all patients for safe participation in high-intensity rehabilitation
  • Establish an appropriate high-intensity plan of care for eligible patients
  • Execute effective and engaging rehabilitation sessions informed by high-intensity rehabilitation strategies
  • Perform ongoing monitoring of patient response to activity and adapt high intensity plans of care throughout the length of stay
  • Communicate and document completely and efficiently to facilitate continuity of care
  • Identify current gaps in care for older adults that high intensity rehabilitation can address and advocate for its use in the skilled nursing setting
