Do you want to increase your awareness of impact of critical care on the neurological and musculoskeletal systems and development of a more whole body systems approach to critical care patients?
Course Leaders: Toni Bailey, Judy Purton,
and Paul Humphrey
Venue: York St John University
Length of course: One day study day
Level and Credit: Study Day
(NB It is possible to gain credits (up to 30 credits at Level 3) towards further study by taking the Post Registration Practice Module alongside any study day.
This study day investigates the issues surrounding the effect of critical illness on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems paying particular reference to Critical Illness Polyneuropathy. Consideration will be given to the impact of both neurological and musculoskeletal adaptations following a critical illness.
The study day will allow participants to evaluate the application of commonly used techniques alongside current evidence in a critical care setting.
Who should attend?
Physiotherapists, OT’s, Nurses and Doctors working in a critical care environment.
How will it benefit my work?
· Increased awareness of impact of critical care on the neurological and musculoskeletal systems.
· Development of a more analytical stance to own practice.
· Development of a more whole body systems approach to critical care patients
· Service could provide more cost effective care by preventing some complications that can increase hospital length of stay and/or increase the need for longer term therapy services
What will I learn?
Upon completion of the study day participants will be able to:
Critically evaluate the effect of critical illness on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems
Appraise the effect of immobility on the neurological and musculoskeletal system.
Appraise a range of rehabilitation techniques in relation to current available evidence.
Clinical reasoning and application to practice
