April 11 and 13, 2023
6:10 pm EST • 5:10 pm CT • 4:10 pm MST • 3:10 pm PT (US)
This course will provide therapists with assessment and intervention strategies to promote optimal functional cognitive recovery and outcomes in the ICU and acute care setting. Emerging evidence suggests that early cognitive intervention in acute care significantly reduces delirium incidence and duration as well as the adverse effects of surviving critical illness. This course will provide knowledge and tools for assessing, monitoring or improving key cognitive abilities in critically ill and acute care patients. A framework for integrating cognitive activities into the medical ICU and acute care environment will be discussed within the context of a team approach. Case examples including those with COVID-19 will be presented, and participants will be asked to apply knowledge and methods to case scenarios throughout the presentation.
- Identify three effects of delirium and critical illness on client outcome.
- Identify four delirium assessments, mini cognitive screenings, and/or cognitive functional assessments suitable for the acute care environment.
- Apply two strategies to engage families of critically ill patients in treatment that supports cognitive functioning.
- Utilize presented framework to apply ICU cognitive interventions and activities to an early cognitive rehabilitation program for a critically ill adult.
- Select cognitive functional activities in acute care that can be modified for an optimal level of challenge for a client.
- Choose a treatment to simultaneously address both physical and cognitive goals within the acute care environment.
- Apply an evidence-based strategy for team coordination and collaboration in addressing cognitive symptoms and for optimal discharge planning.
This live webinar is for PTs, OTs, SLPs, and assistants treating patients adolescent through adulthood.

Excellent information taught by experts in the field of cognition. Both speakers were engaging, well prepared, and helped give me a framework for introducing cognitive treatments into my sessions. I would highly recommend this course! -Michael B., OT
Loved it, full of videos of near-perfect interventions to help us think and discuss how to enrich it even more. Nice to discuss in groups, it confirms what we think and also brings some others point of view. -Marie G., OTR
I thoroughly enjoyed this course....my clinical pearl this time around was the cognitive assessment tools and grading scales to assess improvements or decline in cognition. -Christina F., PT
