The Importance of Observation in PT

Posted by Ann Porter Hoke, PT, DPT, OCS, FCAMPT, FAAOMPT on Mar 23, 2019 10:15:49 AM

This organization was built on and continues to be fueled by the idea that as clinicians--no matter how experienced--we can always become better at what we do. That asking questions, pushing boundaries and going outside the routine not only gives us career satisfaction, but truly makes a difference in our patients' lives. In the below video, I  discuss the importance of observation. Because coming back to the seemingly most basic of questions makes us better.

The thing is, if becoming a truly great clinician was easy, everyone would be doing it. It takes drive, determination and heart to reach new levels in this challenging work we do. Join us in 2020 and see what you're capable of. Browse NAIOMT's course schedule.
