Course Overview: Early rehabilitation of hospitalized patients can reduce muscle weakness, physical impairments and delirium. Yet achieving these outcomes is no simple task. Beyond understanding the science, it requires collaboration and coordination between clinicians who have traditionally worked in "silos." This conference will bridge the interdisciplinary gap from research to the bedside, and bring together clinical experts who are creating a culture based on proactive rehabilitation. This activity is intended for Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, Respiratory Therapists, Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses and Psychologists.
