PP-OTD alumni continue to highlight their impressive work around the country, using the skills they gained in the program.

Jessie Franco, class of 2022, gave a presentation to the UNC Critical Care Special Interest Group entitled “Therapy in the ICU: Best Practice and How to be Prepared.” Dr. Franco reviewed the current evidence supporting the role of therapy in the ICU, discussed current barriers to early activity and mobility, reviewed inclusion and exclusion criteria for patients to participate in therapy, and reviewed foundational areas and skills necessary for practice in the ICU.

Dr. Franco’s Innovation Project was an evidence-based educational website to enhance knowledge and skills to support practice in the ICU.
