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.
What does the High Intensity Physical Rehabilitation in Medically Complex Populations Course include?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.
ABOUT RESTORE:The RESTORE team is a collaborative group of researchers, educators, and professionals within the University of Colorado Physical Therapy Program that seeks to transform the lives of older adults by helping local clinics
integrate the latest evidence-based rehabilitation strategies into routine practice.
RESTORE aims to help our clinical partners become leaders in quality care delivery by using personalized, progressive approaches to strength
and balance training. At the core of this initiative is interactive, customizable online educational platform for training rehabilitation staff in rehabilitation strategies that achieve quicker, more effective, and longer lasting home discharges to drive
higher quality care. This approach to rehabilitation is timely considering evolving changes in reimbursement for post-acute rehabilitation services, favoring more effective and efficient models of care delivery.
