What Past Participants Are Saying
"The conference equipped me with tools to be more confident when treating these patients and I was so excited to share the possibilities of progressing our early mobilization protocols based on what I learned. Thank you for this inspirational and educational weekend.“ - Carey Youmans PT, DPT Physical Therapist, Acute Care
"I have attended three of the first four Johns Hopkins Critical Care Rehabilitation conferences. If I can go to one conference a year, this is by far the one I would choose. I always come away with new knowledge and contacts. Add to this the accessibility of the Johns Hopkins team and the days spent are well worth it!” - Cynthia K. Fine, MSN, CRRN, Clinical Program Coordinator - ICU Early Mobilization Program
“This conference provides excellent resources and networking opportunities for all health care professionals ... I learned a great deal from the interdisciplinary presentations, and the comprehensive discussions about the prevalence of delirium, post-traumatic stress disorder and post-intensive care syndrome in ICU survivors.”
- Claudine Campbell, MOT, OTR/L, CLT, Occupational Therapy Manager, Rehabilitation Service
