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.

What Past Participants Are Saying

“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
