Many survivors of critical conditions experience physical and cognitive impairments that adversely affect the quality of their life. This CE offering will expand your understanding of post-intensive care syndrome (PICS) and help you to derive nurse-driven approaches for patients who develop health issues following a critical illness. From physical myopathies to delirium and other cognitive issues, this session provides strategies to minimize the risk of PICS through the use of support groups and early mobility programs that can be utilized while the patient is still in the intensive care unit.

Get a thorough understanding of the framework of care using the Vanderbilt Patient and Family Promise and the components that constitute an effective patient journal. Using these methods, your confidence will soar when developing care plans or prescribing any necessary medications for your patient with PICS.

The following topics are also included in this talk:

  • Intense real-world case studies
  • Prevention methods through family engagement
  • Non-pharmacologic methods and a review of medications for delirium and post-traumatic stress disorder
