We’ve created an ECMO clinical education experience that pairs lecture-based learning with a realistic clinical environment… complete with all the tangled lines and tubes, alarming IV pumps, and most importantly the PATIENT!
2 days. Hands-on learning. A safe place to learn, ask questions, and make mistakes! The goal is to prepare you to provide the highest level of care for your patients.
Highly skilled and experienced ECMO and Physical Therapy staff provide all the information you need to safely manage the complex patient population supported on ECMO.
Live patient and High Fidelity Simulation scenarios that allow low stress clinical application.
There will be plenty of time for individual practice.
We have limited registration in order to provide the greatest opportunity for individual practice and maximal contact hours with faculty.
Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and other healthcare professionals who care for and assist with the mobilization of patients requiring ECMO support.
2 full days of hands-on learning. Electronic lecture material will be made available to ALL learners. Snacks and lunch will be provided on both day 1 and day 2 of the course.
Course will take place at a state of the art simulation facility, 2610 Merchants Walk, Murfreesboro, TN
Simulation-based learning is fun! Please come compared to share your clinical expertise! Dress is casual professional (scrubs welcomed and encouraged!).
This course is currently approved for 16.75 CME. Upon completion of the course and the post-test/evaluation, your certificate will be made available immediately.
Erica Colclough, PT and Board-Certified Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Specialist
I’ve been a physical therapist practicing in the controlled chaos of the intensive care setting for over 15 years.
When I started practicing in the intensive care setting, I couldn’t make heads or tails of tangled lines/tubes or decipher the alphabet-soup that filled the conversations around me. Despite first impressions, I ABSOLUTELY fell in love with the setting, team, and patient population.
My passion now is to empower clinicians to detangle the lines/tubes, translate the medical gobble goo, and function confidently in the controlled chaos of the intensive care setting.
