  • The Importance of Mentorship

    Although having only been a PTA for three years, I've found myself in conversations with many potential future SPTA candidates. Quite a few have been with bright and hardworking CNAs who I work with in skilled nursing and others have been with folks my age or older (that would be the 40+ set if you were wondering) looking into PTA as a second or ...

  • Changing Goals

    With one week left until graduation, I had my most challenging patient-care conversation since starting PT school. One of my current patients, whom I happened to work with in inpatient rehabilitation during my previous clinical rotation, is a very complex case. He suffered an anoxic brain injury that unfortunately was complicated by a transfemoral ...

  • Asthma Educator Institute

    Continuing education is a necessity in the field of medicine. As a respiratory therapist, I want to know current evidence based information to provide my patients quality and cost effective care. This week, I went to a two day seminar provided by the America Lung Association called the Asthma Educator Institute (AEI). Most of the people there were ...
  • 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 ...

  • A Blog of Olympic Proportion

    Have you all seen what has been going on in Russia the last few weeks? No, not all that business with the Ukraine and Crimea (although honestly when was the last time one country just up and annexed part of another country? Seriously, it's been a while!). But I'm talking about the 2014 Paralympics in Sochi, Russia. After all the pomp and ...

  • Asthma & Mice

    Mouse. What do you think of when you hear the word? You may think of the most famous mouse - Mickey. Or you may think of a cute little field mouse, like the ones I had to deal with in my former state of Illinois. You might think about running away if you saw one. You could think of a pet or just a plain dirty rodent. One word can bring up so ...
  • I Can't Treat That

    I remember my neurology professor at physical therapy school would frequently joke that her friends didn't understand what type of work she did. She would say ''physical therapist'' and they would assume orthopedic injuries and ask for help with their necks, backs, and other musculoskeletal concerns. She would politely correct them and ...

  • Team-Based Care

    Over the past few months, I've heard more and more about the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model of healthcare. I typically think about healthcare models in the silos my physical therapy clinical rotations were centered on: inpatient, outpatient, or a skilled nursing facility. The idea of healthcare facilities as a ''home'' elicits a ...

  • Family-Centered Care

    This week, I was teaching clinicals for one of the local community colleges. My students were surprised by all the syndromes we come across in the pediatric world. I will admit I am the product of the times. I am used to electronic journals and having access to Google. I truly believe Google is your friend in pediatrics. I cannot ...
  • What Do Scores Really Mean?

    The National Health Service was in the news again this weekend, and not for good reasons.  The children's hospital in Bristol has a high mortality rate. The medical director of NHS England, Sir Bruce Keogh, has ordered an independent review of the matter, which is remarkable in that normally investigations have to go through numerous levels ...
