  • Anne Frank's House

    One of the great benefits of living in England is that the rest of Europe is very close by. I got to enjoy a mini-break in Amsterdam this weekend while my partner gave a speech for his work. The last time I was in Amsterdam was on Yom Kippur, the one day of the year the Anne Frank house is closed. I was not missing it this time! It was an ...

  • PT Payday

    When I was in high school, I worked at a local camera and photo studio -- it was a really fun job. I learned how to develop film and pick out mats for framing. It was probably where I developed my organizational skills, by following the rules of the shop to keep all the film negatives in order and prepared for customers to pick up. The business ...

  • Quantity vs. Quality of Life

    Just recently a friend of mine celebrated a significant birthday. I celebrated the same one a year ago. Something about turning this age propelled us both to contemplate the future in a different way than younger ''landmark'' birthdays had done. What to do with the time that is left? This article takes an interesting look at someone's choice to ...

  • Healthcare Knowledge Is Power

    I was plugged into the news last week in anticipation of the Apple event where the iPhone 6 and iWatch products were announced. I look forward to learning about new technology and have grown to look forward to the events hosted by Apple (and other tech companies) each year. What excites me about the new Apple line, more than the other ...

  • How the USA Could Kill the British NHS

    There is currently a huge issue facing Britain as Scotland votes this week on whether or not to leave the United Kingdom. While watching a debate on the BBC this morning, I learned about something else that could have devastating effects on the National Health Service. That something is the EU/US Free Trade Agreement or the Transatlantic Trade and ...

  • 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 ...

  • High-Deductible Health Plans

    Even though I'm living in England and enjoy the national health insurance, I still follow what is going on in the USA insurance market. I read a disturbing article in the New York Times this week about people choosing high-deductible insurance plans. It got me thinking about the dangers of these types of policies. Most importantly would people ...

  • Coordinating Our PT Requests to Congress

    I'm now participating in monthly conference calls for advocacy for physical therapy. Participating might be too strong a word. I listen. Others report. As a result, I've learned that much effort is being put into eliminating the therapy cap and other reimbursement issues. At the end of the call, the facilitator encouraged everyone to keep ...

  • Ice Bucket Challenge

    Over the past few weeks, I've noticed more videos of my friends appearing on various social media networks of themselves dumping ice cold water on their heads and nominating others to do the same. I didn't know much about how the trend started and after some reading (as well as the messages in each video), learned it was a fundraising effort to ...

  • The ‘No Productivity’ Scenario

    I've recently blogged about the potential closing of the long-term care/skilled nursing facility where I work. Although there has been no formal announcement from the administration, census continues to slow and hours have been cut from all departments -- for the exception of rehab. Due to the fact that we continue to generate revenue for the ...
