Summary of Event:
Data in the literature strongly supports the importance of early and frequent mobilization of the patient in the ICU environment, However, treating in the ICU can be quite intimidating, especially to the novice and even sometimes the experienced physical therapist. Medically complex patients challenge therapists to use high level clinical decision making skills to ensure optimal patient treatment while maintaining patient safety. This course will provide therapists with an overview of examination and treatment tools that can be used to optimize patient outcomes while maintaining safety and efficiency in a highly complex medical environment.

The course is designed to provide therapists with current research and recommendations pertaining to the implications of torticollis, sleep posture and increased use of positional devices on infant postural and motor development. Current evidence-based clinical pathways and guidelines for management of torticollis, movement impairments and infant head shape, including Clinical Practice Guidelines from APTA - Academy of Pediatric Physical Therapy, will be incorporated. Red flags for related early infancy and preschool diagnoses will be appraised.

Summary of Event:
As clinicians treating individuals with central nervous system dysfunction, such as cerebral palsy, congenital hypotonia and other multi-system impairments, we can make advances in our clinical decision-making skills by establishing hypotheses regarding the critical impairments that we observe in our assessments and be more precise in our treatment sessions. This 2-day, hand-on lab intensive seminar is designed to further enhance the ability to treat individual’s with CNS dysfunction. We will briefly review the current Neuro-Developmental Treatment Approach principles and rationales that support our treatment planning and the strategies used within a treatment session. Development of your handling skills will be emphasized as a way to influence multi-system and single system impairments related to the client’s functional outcomes. Development of specific handling skills related to in effective posture and movement behaviors observed in the neurologically challenged client will be the primary focus of this seminar. The focus is on pediatrics however because the labs are practiced with adults the information is applicable to the adult population. Discussion of therapeutic intervention and the clinical decision-making process will be discussed. A combination of didactic, video examples, laboratory learning experiences and patient demonstration will ensure the integration of NDT as a foundation for intervention. These CEU's can also be used toward NDTA re-certification.
