Content

The webinars will cover the following topics:

  • Background of the problem: This session will discuss the negative impact of critical illness and ICU-AW, including both physical and non-physical outcomes in the short and long term.
  • The evidence for early rehabilitation: A review of the current evidence base for rehabilitation, current prevalence and barriers to implementation.
  • Practicalities of commencing and progressing rehabilitation: This session will explore safety criteria for commencing rehabilitation, including the physiological response to exercise and choosing the right intensity.
  • Overcoming Challenges: The impact of sedation and delirium. This session will also consider rehabilitation challenges in other populations such as bariatric patients and those with neurological injury.
  • Psychological rehabilitation after ICU: How should we address the long-term psychological consequences of critical illness.
  • Physical Rehabilitation after ICU: How should we address the long-term physical consequences of critical illness.

To encourage maximum learning and reinforce the knowledge acquired, the series of webinars will end with a workshop with practical activities and hands-on sessions, to be held during LIVES 2019 (Berlin, Germany).
