  • My First Physical Therapy Conference

    Over the weekend, I attended the Florida Physical Therapy Association's Annual Conference in Orlando, FL. The conference ran from September 11-14, and it was a great few days. I attended an interactive ''Speed Dating'' session where we got six 15-minute Q & A's with various PTs on different topics like Practice and Advocacy, the Chapter ...

  • Public Speaking

    This week, I'll be giving a presentation to half of our company about a recent continuous improvement project I've worked on. We are just weeks away from our project being implemented, and many of my coworkers who haven't been involved in the project don't know what to expect (rightfully so -- their focus is patient care!). I've been involved in ...

  • Interstate Practice

    One of the things that surprised me when I first moved to the United Kingdom was that my registration (equivalent to licensing) was valid not only in England, but also in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. If I suddenly got an offer in Edinburgh or Cardiff, I could simply accept it and go. No additional paperwork. I've held multiple licenses ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • '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 ...
  • My Mentor, My Inspiration

    For my birthday, I've treated myself to phone calls to friends and family back in the States. I just got off the line with the person who I can say is the reason I became a PT/physiotherapist. I had been in my mid-20s and the whole starving actor gig was more starving than acting and it really wasn't much fun. I figured that if I wasn't having ...

  • 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 ...
  • She Loves Her Job

    I always enjoy talking to the therapists who come to my course. Last week I met a PT I'll call Dottie. I don't want to use her real name, but she reminds me of someone named Dottie. Dottie has been a therapist since back in the day. She graduated years before I even thought about PT school and is still going strong. Dottie is a home health ...

  • Presenting, Presenting, Presenting...

    I got word today that the abstract for our study on the clinical and financial efficacy of our fall prevention clinic has been approved for a poster presentation at the annual Physiotherapy UK conference in Birmingham in October. I'm very pleased. While I was back in New York last year, the team here was collecting data. When I returned, we put it ...
