Acute Care Courses at AOTA Conference

I'm Attending! I feel that it's difficult to find OT courses on acute care topics. It's also hard to apply evidence from those courses to the everyday fast paced world. Here are some parts of the AOTA conference especially for Acute Care OTs (places where you're almost guaranteed to find me!)
Links go to full course description on the Create Itinerary page for conference.

Nice information but I'm already studying in a Canadian college from where I can complete my OT education.

Your OT education is never complete. US registration requires at least 12 contact hours/year.
