I am totally applying, I'm excited at the possible opportunity. 🙂
Today was shadowing outpatient – one to two weeks there and then start with my own case load across town. Reviewed and saw modalities (need to sign up for a PAMCA course asap in Atlanta so I can be certified in thermal modalities myself), scar massage, PNF patterns, leuko-tape, median gliding exercises, an eval, goniometry….lots to review!
AOTA Announces Leadership Development Program for New Practitioners
The announcement calling for New Practitioner Applicants:
Was very impressed to see a great article called “Blogging for Advocacy” by Alece Kaplan in the July 27th, 2009 issue of OT Practice, www.otadvocacy.com. Alece wrote about how she used her blog to advocate for OT (getting redundant here I guess lol) and some of the experiences she had and the people she reached! It was very informative and I was impressed with her descriptions of blogging for a cause. Great job Alece 🙂
Hahaha it's funny because it's true…good post Kimberly (who is doing great in OT school!) Congrats. (And congrats to Wendy, Liberty, Carina, Kacey, and several others I'm blanking on, as they continue on their OT student journey…)
Well I continue to learn new things every day about evaluations, discharges, treatment ideas…tons of treatment ideas I've been writing down. Need to share, perhaps this weekend. Learning more about manual muscle testing, PROM, AROM, adaptive equipment, durable medical equipment, and so forth. Tomorrow is my last day inpatient – next week I start outpatient training, then week after that different (final placement) outpatient, but I'm guessing I'll still be around in various areas as needed for a while, I dunno. I love being an occupational therapist but I still feel very much like a student. I hang out with the students too.
Wrote a post on this recently, too lazy to relink, but here is another comment on it that came from a cross-post I did on OT Connections
Jo (Community mental health OT, Northumberland, UK)
I posted a bunch of posts today…the easiest ones I could….went to coffee shop with fast internet for first time since move….of course its 7 miles away and only open until 8pm..lol.better than nothing….went from 163 emails to deal with to about 115….hope to go back within next week and cross out another 30-40….didnt necessarily deal with them chronologically so much as how quickly i could deal with it/how much thinking was involved….so blog readers/commenters….have hope, I still have a bunch more to go. Most recent, a few much older ones 😡
