  • Interpreters

    I had my first evaluation via interpreter this week, leaving me certain that I'll attempt to learn Spanish when I'm done with school. There are a few things that I realized when the interpreter was translating the eval. First of all, interview ''cadence'' is not something you usually think about.

  • PT and the Poverty Line

    I had a teacher in PT school who told us the best first job he ever had was working in an inner-city hospital treating patients with low incomes or limited financial resources.

  • Affordable Care Act

    I'm embarrassed to say it, but it wasn't until last week that I finally got a grasp of the Affordable Care Act and specifically its implications for the future of physical therapy. As part of our ''Evidence-Based Practice'' coursework, Everette James, director of the Health Policy Institute at the University of Pittsburgh, addressed our class ...

  • Fall Semester Done

    After much sweat and tears this past semester, I've finally managed to finish my three online classes for my DPT with a month to spare. It was perhaps the most challenging semester so far, with a class titled ''Direct Access.'' Having worked 20-plus years for healthcare systems, I was quite comfortable with seeing patients who were required by ...

  • Team Building

    It has been a very busy week preparing, as best we could, for the changes we're currently experiencing. Working in a hospital-based, outpatient rehabilitation center, there had never been a dollar restriction on the visits allowed through straight Medicare. Beginning Oct. 1, we've been making patients aware of the amount they've used since ...
