  • 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 ...

  • SPT Test-Taking Skills

    One of my biggest strengths in PT school thus far has been my test-taking skills. Due to the extremely accelerated summer semester, there is simply no way to study everything to the extent you can in undergraduate studies. This means you can no longer out-study bad test-taking skills. Here are a few lessons I've learned so far: Eliminate answer ...

  • On the Job Training

    I have found there are a few skill sets PTAs might find useful in their careers that are not covered in the PTA program curriculum. The techniques relate mostly to skilled nursing PT, as that's been my setting since I graduated, but can certainly translate to home health or inpatient/acute physical therapy. The first and most often demonstrated ...

  • 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 ...

  • Scheduling Conflict

    I've got a bone to pick with you outpatient therapists! When I first started working at the hospital, our inpatient office was right next door to the front office of our outpatient department. It was pretty easy to listen to some of the phone calls come in, and one of the most frequent things I'd hear that always bothered me was a conversation ...

  • Delayed ICD-10

    Medicare and Medicaid announced recently that ICD-10 will go-live on October 1, 2015, which is the third time the change has been delayed since 2009. CMS states that several factors impact the delay of implementing the updated coding guidelines: software, staff training, updating policies and guidelines, as well as paperwork to reflect the ...

  • Student and Patient Communication

    So I had a student start a couple weeks ago. You may recall I wanted to have a ''student summit'' this summer, but unfortunately it got bogged down in some administrative red tape. Needless to say it's been tentatively scheduled for this fall after my student's rotation is done. Anyway, my student has been doing well. This is his third clinical of ...

  • 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 ...

  • New Beginnings

    For many in this country, the beginning of July is marked by celebrations of America's independence. Parades, BBQs, fireworks... it's all part of the annual celebration of this land we call home. But for those of us in the healthcare field, the beginning of July also signifies something else: new residents. That's right folks, around the ...
