This title from a recent Advance
Article caught my attention. As a
golf enthusiast (where my score does not yet reflect my passion for the game!)
and with May being Mental Health Awareness Month I found the topic timely and
fascinating. Basically a group of Level
2 fieldwork students at Kean University in Union, NJ developed ...
Amazing what can happen in one week. In a major healthcare system of a large metropolitan area surrounded by water, we've successfully accomplished separating pediatric from adult rehabilitation in preparation for our growth as the Rehabilitation Institute of South Florida. Every day of this mission has started at 5 a.m. with communication with ...
I was glad to see this pop up on my radar. This Thursday May 9th is National Children’s Mental
Health Awareness Day. With our 24/7
news and social media feed these days it just seems
as if there is a barrage of attention lately focused on escalating violence
affecting children. Traumatic events
such as the Sandy ...
I sat in on a great short course for Children and Youth last
week at the AOTA conference. Entitled Finding Our Niche in RtI, instructors Joyce Salis, OTD, OTR/L and
Janet Bucey, OTR/L did a super job of explaining OT’s role in the RtI process
at each of the tiers. There was no
shortage of suggested resources either, from EBP ...
A short break between semesters has proven to come at the best time for me. Today brings with it a major change in my facility, where one department is becoming two. Employees have been preparing for months for this change, with hopes that everything goes smoothly. In a large department where things don't always go smoothly on a regular day, we ...
I was thrilled to be at the AOTA conference last week in San
Diego. This is the first time in many
years that I have gone just as an attendee/participant and it was both
insightful and delightful to sit in on courses, go to poster sessions and
network with colleagues and friends. I
believe this year’s attendance was one of the ...
Continuing on our Earth
Day adventures with the theme of getting outside one of my fellow
colleagues who is a former PE instructor sent me a great blog from peds OT
Loren Shlaes. Entitled Why
Kids Need Recess and PE for Academic Success it is an open invitation to
teachers (and parents and ANYONE who will listen!) on the value of recess ...
A most disturbing week has occurred, once again, for the citizens of our country. As I look forward to starting a new semester once again and booking a flight to attend a weekend course for the final session in the quest for my DPT, I'm shaken by the latest attack on our fellow citizens. Although acts of terrorism occur all over the world and ...
This concept is popping up in my world again so just thought
I would give an update on my blog from earlier this year on Telehealth. My sister is a clinical nurse specialist who
works for a busy pediatric cardiology center. Her team is discussing how
telehealth may possibly be used to monitor discharged infants and children who
live in ...
Last November my daughter experienced her first migraine-free month -- at the hands of gabapentin. The GI effects were worse than the headaches, so she stopped taking the medication. The headaches immediately returned.
When my daughter's neurologist put gabapentin on the table, I was already familiar with it from two decades earlier -- when I ...
