A special live event this month

Do any of these scenarios resonate with you?

  • Patients doubting your role in their recovery, saying they don't need you. In the case of an SLP, they may say, "I talk just fine." In the case of an OT, they might say, "I don't have a job anymore." In the case of the PT... well, we all know you don't have this problem ;)
  • Getting chewed out by an overwhelmed family member looking for any method of releasing their extraordinary anger and stress about their loved one's situation. This might look like getting upset about their loved one choosing not to participate in therapy and blaming you for not trying hard enough to make them do it.
  • Filling out progress notes, wondering how to document the complexity of the patient's situation in the context of measurable goals. This might look like creating a goal around using the call light, only to find that staff is not using any of the visual cues you provided nor are they following your recommendations to help improve independence with this task.

If any of these resonate with you, I invite you to join me for a live discussion!

In this discussion, we're digging into the root cause of all of those scenarios listed above: Poor health literacy combined with an authoritative traditional medical model perpetuated by insurance companies and for-profit healthcare.

It's gonna be FIRE!

I majored in history (back before I knew about the amazing profession of rehab therapy), so to get the ball rolling in this discussion, we're going to look at all of this through the lens of history.

What is the traditional medical model? Where did it come from and why is it so prevalent today?

How does the traditional medical model cause the kinds of tension and friction between therapists, patients, and other staff that leaves us all feeling like we're fighting each other instead of reaching common goals?

Is there a different kind of medical model out there?

I believe there is, and I believe it's time we all be talking about it on the regular.

Join me as I outline 8 questions that truly have the capacity to transform your clinical practice. These are 8 questions that you can start asking your patients immediately. Upon incorpoating them into your clinical practice, I believe you will notice a shift not only in your interactions with patients, family, and staff, but in your own awareness of the power and value of what you bring to the table.

These questions are based on the work of Dr. Atul Gawande, who wrote, among many other books, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End.

This will be different than our usual courses in the following ways:

  • It will only be offered live (if there's enough interest, I will offer multiple dates).
  • It will be offered for ASHA CEUs. There will be no quiz. To get credit, you will need to write a brief essay answering 3 questions. Or, you can just come and enjoy the conversation and not attend for CEUs! Totally up to you.
  • It will be a Zoom meeting format, meaning that we will all get to see each other! Come with your favorite warm beverage and willingness to turn your camera on because I want to see all of your beautiful faces!!
