  • 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 ...

  • Blatant Rudeness

    Usually when I go on a teaching trip, I have wonderful students. For the most part they pay attention. I get good questions. Some have fallen asleep because they drove three hours to get there. Others are obviously there for the CEUs. Last week I had someone who disrupted the class. I encourage questions and discussion with attendees. This time ...

  • Request for Submissions

    It's that time of year again. The company that I teach for is requesting submissions for an education summit next year. I'm supposed to select a topic, describe what it is and why I think people would be interested. Then I submit that and five references no more than a year or two old. They try to present newer information. The problem is I can't ...

  • Beyond Multidisciplinary

    Most of us are well familiar with a multidisciplinary approach to meeting all of a patient's needs. Input from doctors, nursing, OT, PT, speech, and social work help us to provide better outcomes for patients. Notice the key word there... patients. What about people? Once a person becomes a patient, something has already gone wrong. This is where ...

  • We Are Our Biggest Challenge

    (Editor's Note: Throughout the month of February, ADVANCE bloggers Lisa Mueller and Michael Kelley will post ''Dueling Blogs,'' in which they argue opposing sides of the same issue. Topic #4 -- ''What Is the Biggest Challenge to the PT Profession?'') When Michael and I discussed writing four weeks of ''Dueling Blogs'' in mid-January, we ...
