PTAE SIG March Webinar

The next webinar of our 2021-2022 series will be held on Thursday, March 3, 2022, from 7:00 PM EST to 8:00 PM EST and Michael Wong, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT and Holly Tkackik, PT, DPT will present Modeling Professional Behaviors- Emotional Intelligence and Conflict Management.

This presentation proposes an evidence-based approach that uses technology to develop these key skills prior to students beginning their clinical rotations. This strategy takes the mystery out of the affective domain by providing a framework for uniformity in student preparation prior to their clinical experiences. Utilizing this innovative curricular strategy will help to promote excellence in PT/PTA education, and ultimately, PT practice and patient care.

We hope to see you there!

Cultivating the Habits at the Heart of Patient Care: Compassion, Vulnerability, & Imagination
The best clinicians know that caring well for patients requires more than technical skill. Yet, too often this “something more” is reduced to ideas about “soft skills” or “bedside manner.” As a result, qualities like empathy, vulnerability, and connection—that is, habits of the heart—are seen as extraneous to the “real” work of patient care. This talk aims to show how habits of the heart are not mere “add ons” to clinical care but are essential to the everyday practice of assessing, diagnosing, and treating patients—and asks us to consider whether and how these habits can be cultivated among current and future clinicians.
