Rank #3: Playing to DPT Students Strengths with Megan Moran

Podcast cover
Read more

Megan Moran is a Physical Therapist and Assistant Professor at Marymount University.

Megan shares how she used Clifton StrengthsFinders in DPT education to test if grouping students by various strengths could make them more productive in school, at work, or in their personal lives.

CliftonStrengths is an assessment tool used across different industries to inform individuals of their personal strengths or talents.  Individuals are encouraged to leverage their strengths to make them more productive at work or in their personal lives.  At MU, we are introducing this to students as they enter the program with hopes they will continue to use their talents throughout their graduate education and as they enter the profession.

The assessment is easily available online, for a minimal fee.  Individuals can gain insight as to why they gravitate to certain tasks at work, or why they work well with others.  Knowing one’s strength can help an individual choose roles where they will thrive.

  • Know your strengths and how others might view the strengths
  • Don’t spend most of your time focusing on your weaknesses
  • Learn the strengths of those you work with and discuss how your team can best achieve goals

Podcast cover
Read more

Joe has spent the last 30 years training physical therapy residents and fellows in programs in Southern California, and across the US and around the world in USC affiliated programs.

And, from 2006 to 2017, he served as the editor of the Clinical Practice Guidelines for Common Musculoskeletal Conditions for the Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy and the Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy.

What a participant will get by participating in the AOPT meeting in Minneapolis in April

  • Summary of what makes this meeting different than other continuing professional education events
  • Quality of the presenters – actual authors of the cutting edge science match with master clinicians who were also authors of the recent clinical practice guidelines
  • Small group – hands-on sessions – an opportunity to interact in a face to face manner with the presenters
  • Leading-edge content – integrating science into practice with a focus on inter-regional relations
  • There are two unique practice areas of physical therapists.
  • One is making clinical decisions on and providing interventions for our clients based upon movement/pain relations
  • The other is making clinical decisions and providing interventions for our clients based upon inter-regional relationships
  • We need to own these areas. 
  • This the presentations and discussions in this meeting are focused on making this improving the ability of the participants in these two areas of practice for the Head, Neck, Thorax, and Shoulder regions.
  • Clinical success in physical therapy for our clients with common musculoskeletal disorders is highly related to correctly determining the physical impairments most related to the clients reported concern or limitation
  • Then, determine the intervention and the dosage of that intervention is critical to be therapeutic
  • Make incorrect decisions or poor treatment implementation results increased likelihood of chronic disablement in our clients.   The stakes are high.  The responsibility is high.

Rank #6: Nutrition! It’s in your PT Scope of Practice!

Podcast cover
Read more

We talk to PT and Registered Dietician Patrick Berner about PT scope of practice and nutrition.

Believe it or not nutrition is something well within the scope of practice of a physical therapy practitioner. Something that the APTA fully supports and of recent fully supports the collaboration/referral to registered dietitians. The degree of use will of course also depend on practitioner’s local practice acts.

Why does this matter?

Because the physical therapy profession needs to become more holistic in nature and the nutrition is a huge part of it.

Nutrition is within the PT scope.

State practice acts makes a difference.

Know the limitations of your “personal scope.”

Can technology can help a PT do their job better and expand the scope of their practice?

Podcast cover
Read more

Nick Housley is a physical therapist with a PhD in neuroscience and is the director of clinical research at Motus Nova working with new rehab technologies. You can check out Motus rehab here: https://motusnova.com/

Nick tells his story of being a nationally ranked cyclist and had an accident during this time. His experience with his physical therapist inspired him to pursue PT more specifically with robotics and assisted technology. He hopes that robotics will be that step to advance care and rehab for patients with neurological injuries.

He brings us to the Motus Nova walkthrough where he illustrates the types of exoskeletons he works with and how they are beneficial for our patients. He also discusses even the disadvantages because assisted technology needs to be able to fit with each individual patient.

The next step of robotics in PT is helping people adopt tele-rehab delivery methods. Robotics can be a new tool to adjust and modify PT practices.

He paints us a picture of his ideal patient for his clinic and building relationships and connections to this patient population helped him define his target audience. Identifying the target audience will eventually transform the business operation.

Bringing back to the basics, Jamey breaks down the difference between benefits and features of treating patients and owning a business.

·        Referral partners

·        Connecting with the customer directly

·        Have something to offer the target audience

The Great PT Reset – with Sean Bagbey and Craig Phifer

Podcast cover
Read more

The Great Reset

Craig Phifer, PT and Sean Bagbey, PTA are co-owners of Rehabilitation & Performance Institute which puts the person first. They created the Private Practice Rebellion where they teach other business owners their model. Check those out here:

·        Rehabilitation & Performance Institute https://rehabilitationperformance.com/

·        Private Practice Rebellion https://www.privatepracticerebellion.com/

Craig follows Dave Chase’s idea of what healthcare should look like and recommends the book “The CEO’s Guide to Restoring the American Dream.” In this book, Dave Chase discusses this period we are in today is “The Great Reset.”

Craig gave us his equation on what the “great reset” is in patient care. Craig emphasizes not all parts of this equation are weighted the same in each patient interaction.

·        Value = patient experience + emotional experience + physical outcome / effort putting in + price their paying + risk taking.

Sean shares a personal story about himself and his treating physical therapist. From his experience, he feels PTs are needed now more than ever as our skills are essential.

Craig explains the patient perspective in physical therapy and if patients do value us to pay for our services. He describes this value is developed in the first 3-4 visits with the patient.  

Craig and Sean demonstrate that PTs need to have an existing relationship to build trust. How to build a relationship with your patient is different now compared to pre-COVID.

QUOTES

“If this is a reset, what is going to change and how are we going to adapt with it?” – CRAIG

“Physical therapy needs to have a better place in our society.” – SEAN

“We need to show our worth and this is our chance to start doing that.” – SEAN

“It just reinforces to me what we can do in this profession.” – SEAN

“If you want to seem interesting, be interested.” – JIMMY

“That monster becomes bigger when you think it is under the bed.” – JIMMY

“We are not the star of the show when we are treating someone.” – SEAN

PARTING SHOT

“The profession of physical therapy can be much better then what we currently live in.” – SEAN

“We gotta get away from talking and we need to get to doing.” – SEAN

 “Make healthcare work really well for us.” – CRAIG 

It has been suggested by Dave Chase that this period of time may be defined “The Great Reset.” I believe we’re about to see much faster changes in opinion, lifestyle, and behavior then we normally would. What does that mean for the profession of physical therapy?

We’re doing so much right as a profession, but our service is generally not valued (5th choice for chronic MSK pain by primary care physicians, 6th-ranked choice for people who have LBP). Right now, we have a tremendous opportunity to change that.

  • Understanding that while clinically, we’re doing so much well, that doesn’t mean that people value the service we provide on a macro level.
  • People significantly changed where and how they spent their money in the Great Recession, and we are very likely to see changes again.
  • We can prepare PT to be at the forefront of this change, but we have to acknowledge and deliver what people want from our service – price transparency, highly individualized care, and trusting relationships with providers.

People don’t value PT the way it’s currently being delivered (trying to offend as few people as possible). This is a business systems problem and not a clinical problem. As few as 10% of patients complete their prescribed care plan (WebPT 2018 State of Rehab Survey), and 78% of PTs reported that they thought this number was at least 50% of patients (16% not sure, only 6% of therapists indicated a number less than 50%). So, it’s a problem therapists either don’t know about or don’t want to know about. What’s worse, is that most of them are not put in a position to do anything about it. Now is a great opportunity to change that for the following reasons: 

  • Many therapists are finding out their employers kind of suck and probably see that if they want to do this right they may need to do it on their own or with others who see what they see
  • Patients attitudes and beliefs are changing – if a company depends on therapists seeing 2-3 patients at a time to make it financially, that company is not going to do well. This gives new small businesses a massive advantage

The Experiences of Black Students in Physical Therapy Education in Texas: A Qualitative Study

Podcast cover
Read more

Stephanie Williams, DPT, Mercia Bakouetila, DPT, Andrea Pantoja, DPT, and Amy Marie Lucero, DPT are four class of 2020 graduates and physical therapists from Texas State University to discuss their qualitative study on black students in PT education.

Stephanie begins the chat by giving us the statistics of black physical therapists and students in our profession compared to the population.

Amy paints a picture of the difficulties black PT students face enrolling into school and the lack of mentorship towards these groups of students. Mercia mentions from the study there was a wide spectrum of both micro and macroaggressions from stereotypes, prejudice, and even racism.

Andrea defines social isolation and assumed universality for this population which includes under representation, lack of support from faculty, feelings of loneliness within PT education and similarities among this population.

Mercia illustrates what code-switching means through example stories and that black students need to “code switch” even in a physical therapy program.  

This group found that black students in PT programs did seek organizations that included diversity to feel comfortable and have a sense of community but also had allyship from their peers and faculty to help establish a more diverse PT experience.

QUOTES

49:16 “If you don’t know anyone that looks like you in this position, you might not even find out that physical therapy is a thing.” – MERCIA

46:12 “It doesn’t matter what I’ve done. It does matter that I have a 4.0 in undergrad. For some people, all they’re going to see is the color of my skin.” – MERCIA

41:57 “Man I wish one of my white friends would have spoken up.” – STEPHANIE

38:35 “I have to put a bigger effort in getting to know people compared to them trying to get to know me.” – ANDREA

34:13 “You have experiences as a white person. I have experiences as a black person. You can’t relate to what I say but you need to try to understand.” – MERCIA

30:24 “I am going to be unapologetically black in everything that I do even if that means being isolated.” – MERCIA

17:28 “Race might be uncomfortable to talk about, but you got to become uncomfortable, you got to learn.” – ANDREA

14:22 “We’ve come a long way but we still have so much work to do.” – STEPHANIE

WTF is UX (User Experience)? And how can it help Science?

Podcast cover
Read more

Mike Morrison is a former web designer turned PhD student in Work Psychology using design and psychology backgrounds to share knowledge.

Mike defines the user experience (UX) in common web designs today and how UX makes consuming information faster and more efficient in websites or presentations.

With his background in web design, Mike created Twister Poster and Better Poster to improve the way information is presented. Check them out here:

·        Twitter poster: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQDL8r3r_d4

·        Better poster: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RwJbhkCA58&t=3s

He describes what is included in the Better Poster and how it compares to other posters usually seen at conferences. He talks about the importance of catching attention and emotion with your poster design.

He explains how to create a Twitter Poster and found this design to be more eye catching to the consumer versus a link or graphic.

Mike breaks down what information foraging theory is and why it is important to engage your audience with little effort.

Mike believes there is not a better time then to start and apply UX than during COVID. With the rise in virtual events and increase in technology use, it is time to improve the presentation of your information and make presenting easier.
