The environment of total joint arthroplasty is changing. As rehab professionals, therapists are no longer relegated to silos of care. The therapists in home health, skilled nursing and outpatients must evaluate and treat what is considered an acute care level patient due to the minimal length of stay. Patients in the acute setting are functionally performing at the home health and outpatient levels. This course addresses how we meet this growing population to provide time appropriate treatment interventions across the continuum of care. Therapists must quickly and accurately identify problems, develop relevant rehab plans and modify their care to fit everyone from the fit to the frail elective surgery patient. This course examines all of the factors impacting rehabilitation and successful recovery.
