Yesterday we talked about the role of the educator in helping students and clinicians avoid burnout. Today we talked about strategies the individual themselves can take to ensure their fire builds instead of fades. Enjoy
Burnout it multi-factorial with responsibility shared by many. This morning we take a viewpoint rarely discussed, namely the role of the educator in facilitating burnout. A fine line exists between inspiring students while still giving a realistic perspective on clinic life, and failing to walk it properly may have long term repercussions. By sharing our clinical challenges, and how we find success within them, I believe we can contribute greatly to the mental health of new graduates. Enjoy the first episode of season 4!
Do PTs know how to hustle? What have I learned from those I have mentored over the years? Do I get separate consent for spinal manipulation? Lots of good ones, let's do it!

Trying to lead in a fashion that doesn't ruffle any feathers is both ineffective and exhausting. Let's talk
It seems that CPRs have been a topic of great debate since their inception in physical therapy research and practice. Most recently Dr. Chad Cook had a great blog post and editorial that highlighted some concerns with these tools. Today we tackle this important topic in hopes of generating more thoughtful discussion on how or if CPRs have a place in physical therapy.
Creating the vision is certainly the exciting part, but people who consistently deliver over time know the truth: It's all about execution on the small steps. Enjoy
