Adams Brothers Communications Inc. offers continuing education activities that are designed to foster improvement in clinical knowledge and skills of healthcare providers in the hospital setting.  Although educated and trained in the United States, Adams Brothers Communications educates therapists internationally.  All cultures want safe and efficient ways to rehabilitate their patients and most techniques taught can be utilized globally.  Adams Brothers Communications has met the stringent continuing educations requirements of AOTA and ASHA to become preferred providers.  The APTA does not have an approved provider program, hence CEUs for PT/PTAs are approved at the state level.  Throughout this last decade Adams Brothers Communications has been approved to provide continuing education to PT/PTAs in 22 states. 

If you have any special accreditation needs, we will attempt to meet them. Please feel free to contact us via e-mail at contactus@icuclass.com or toll-free at 877.ICU.CLASS (877.428.2527).

Written ICU Competency

JCAHO and the State Boards of Health ask for evidence of competency in 'High-Risk, Low-Frequency' areas of patient care. The ICU is considered one of these areas. As we go through the Bells & Whistles(SM) course, a written competency form will be completed. This gives your facility, JCAHO, and the State Health Department some evidence of your knowledge in the ICU. This written competency in no way means you are comfortable, efficient, or safe in the ICU, but it does demonstrate to the governing authorities your effort to address the need for greater skills and knowledge in a 'High-risk, Low Frequency' area . We always recommended that you spend one-on-one time with a mentor in the ICU (with the mentor providing timely feedback) before working alone in the ICU. In addition, an ICU Precautions/Contraindications Booklet (about 34 pages) will be available for those who choose to take the ICU competency. The optional written ICU competency is free
