Despite living in different countries and health systems, physical therapists in Colombia and Peru are facing the same challenges as physical therapists in the United States. This discussion features Nancy Molina, president of the Colombian Physical Therapy Association, Gabriela Mallma, president of the Peruvian Physical Therapy Association and Ana Herrera, PT in Peru. Both presidents describe how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their countries, the response of each government, and how PTs are challenged by insufficient PPE and other difficulties to providing services. They also describe how PTs are finding innovative ways to care for their communities. The discussion is in Spanish and English.
Telehealth and telePT are increasing in scope and availability to providers and patients. As adoption and uptake of these delivery innovations has expanded, physical therapy research and education has been slow to address the nuances of clinical reasoning and patient management in a setting in which the patient is not in the same location as the clinician. In this panel, providers across specialties answer questions from audience members.
In this episode, Physical Therapist Rick Segal guides listeners as to how they can discover their career interests, what to do once they narrow down their options, and further insight on how to advance within our field and move our profession forward.
