#7178 Beyond Ankle Pumps and Quad Sets: Functional Exercise and Mobility for the Long-Term, Chronically-Ill, Bed-Bound Patient. THE MEEKS METHOD
This evidence-based, experiential, active and participatory 2-hour webinar will focus on the management of the long-term, chronically-ill, physically-frail, or pre-frail, cognitively-intact patient. The presentation will include adapted exercise and movement suggestions for populations of patients who are being seen by rehabilitation personnel in ICU, Acute Care, Home Care, Nursing Home, and Skilled Nursing Facilities as well as in out-patient clinics. These patients frequently exhibit several other conditions (e.g., COPD, osteoporosis, burns, organ transplants, heart conditions) that may influence movement and exercise prescription. Some of these conditions may have conflicting treatment options (e.g., spinal stenosis vs osteoporosis) and some diagnoses may take precedence over others.
