COVID-19 Core Outcomes Measures Feedback Requested

The Cross-Academy COVID-19 Core Outcome Measures Task Force is working to identify the fewest tests and measures that can capture key constructs related to signs and symptoms for the most patients with COVID-19 across all settings and functional levels to guide patient care, justify therapy services, and improve ease for later research. As you know, they are currently looking for volunteers to help identify any key tests and measures that capture the identified constructs that they may have missed during their expedited literature review process. A link to the 10 minute survey has been posted in the COVID-19 Hub Community on the APTA website, with responses requested by May 26th.

 

Free Recorded Webinar Now Available

The webinar recorded on May 16thCOVID-19: ICU to Home Transitionsis now available for free. 

About the Webinar:
Patients suffering through the prolonged hospital course COVID-19 requires will experience a range of challenges physically, psychologically, and socioeconomically. The physical therapist has an important role assisting patients and family members as they navigate and progress through transitions extending from an ICU admission to returning home. Effective planning and management of these transitions will restore the lives of our patients, optimize resource utilization and reduce hospital readmissions. Transitions should begin at the physical therapist’s initial examination and be actively managed across all encounters with the patient. This presentation empowers participants with strategies for managing the transitions involving the hospital, inpatient rehabilitation program, home with home health care or outpatient services. Strategies for interprofessional collaboration, enhanced communication, and advocacy within the interprofessional team are presented.
