  • Evidence-Based... Astrology?

    For the past 5 years, I've spent a fair amount of time talking to people about the reality of the National Health Service (NHS) in England. That it is actually a very good service and an organization I'm rather proud to work within. I've worked hard to convince friends, family, and readers back in the USA that every horrible thing they've heard ...

  • Strategic Meeting

    As part of my leadership program, I attended the Texas Physical Therapy Association (TPTA) strategic planning meeting last weekend. The idea was to get newer and upcoming leaders to meet and mingle with people in leadership positions. We also got insight into how decisions are made and what is on tap for us in the future. I loved it. I chose to ...

  • Continuing Education Courses

    A few years ago, I had the opportunity to teach a continuing education course on early mobility with three other physical therapists. We met for several weeks, reviewing the content along with the training and presentation materials. It took a lot of thought and effort to review every detail of the course to make sure it flowed well and the ...

  • My Latest Continuing Education Course

    Last month I went to an onsite CEU course. Back in the day, I was a CEU junkie. I'd go not just for CEUs but if the topic sounded interesting. More recently I've had to cut back and limit myself to CSM. This year I got burned by the stroke course at CSM. Needless to say, I was a little nervous about this one. The topic was motor learning. It was ...

  • Effective Agents for Change

    Two weeks ago I attended, and presented a poster, at a seminar on change within the National Health Service (NHS). We were asked to present because we had excellent outcomes in our service and we got them by doing things differently than other services had done. It was an enlightening day. The primary speaker, Helen Bevan, gave a fantastic ...

  • Consent for Professional Abuse

    If you're thinking this is a post about patient consent, it's not. Last week I wrote about the nearly unachievable productivity levels in skilled nursing facilities. I got a lot of responses from it. A former classmate wrote to tell me he was just separated from his employer due to saying ''no'' to unreasonable productivity levels. Professionals ...

  • How PT Can Benefit From Getting Social

    In our first few weeks of PT school, we've spent a lot of time discussing appropriate social media use. In one of our classes, we even did some ''cybervetting,'' or searching for ourselves online. As an admitted tech-geek, I have been all over social media from a young age and, before even beginning physical therapy school, I was blogging and ...

  • 'The Power of the Human Spirit'

    CHARLOTTE, NC -- Jimmy Fallon isn't down here for the APTA's 2014 NEXT Conference and Exposition, but he was about the only thing missing from the ''Tonight Show''-style opening event last night. APTA CFO Rob Batarla served as master of ceremonies, with the homage including everything from a comical monologue to interview couch, succession of ...
  • What Should I Do Before Starting PT School?

    The question of what one should do before starting physical therapy school is one I heard often among my peers throughout the application process. Should you study all the muscles and their innervations and insertions? Or should you travel the world? I had three weeks in between finishing my prerequisites and starting my program and, with just a ...

  • What's NEXT? The 2014 APTA Annual Conference

    The American Physical Therapy Association's yearly summertime showcase is celebrating significant changes in 2014. Traditionally known as the ''APTA Annual Conference & Exposition,'' it has been rebranded as ''NEXT.'' In addition, this year's event will be hosted by a city not typically seen among the organization's rotation of conference ...
