Title: Considerations for Adolescents on Adult Inpatient Rehabilitation Units
Date: September 12, 2019
Time: 12:00 noon – 1:00 pm EDT
Each year, inpatient rehab units within adult facilities probably has an adolescent referred to their programs. Some programs have strict age-based admission criteria that stipulate only 18 an above. Other programs will define age 16 and above. And others 12 and above. Many times, we only admit a few adolescents each year. We should ask ourselves, “Is our facility prepared to adequately address adolescent needs and issues to ensure optimal outcomes?”. In this webinar, we will help you answer this question.
- Define adolescence and developmental characteristics that may be expected from this population
- Discuss the standards of care by the World Health Organization for children and adolescents in healthcare facilities
- Describe key considerations when admitting adolescent patients into an adult rehabilitation unit
- Explain required CARF standards for inpatient rehab units with no pediatric specialty programs
