Cases Across the Continuum of Care: Improving Outcomes Through the Recognition and Prevention of the Unexpected
PresentersSteven Ambler, PT, DPT, MPH, CPH, OCSJamie Dyson, PT, DPT
Course: #2602 Level: Intermediate 2 HoursFriday, January 20, 2017 at 12:00 pm EST
This educational session will bring together clinicians for the presentation and discussion of clinical cases with unexpected or unintended outcomes. Real patient cases will be presented followed by a discussion period after each case. The discussion will consist of discussion of how the unexpected outcome occurred, how it was addressed, and how it could be prevented in the future. Rationale for these decisions will be supported by available evidence. An overview of the benefits of morbidity and mortality presentations will be given, along with strategies to implement these within one’s own practice or region.
