Telehealth Ergonomics for Healthcare Professionals – Live Webinar
April 29, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC-7| $79.99
For years, the American Physical Therapy Associationhas been telling us as practitioners: “Telehealth will not replace traditional clinical care – but it will give flexibility to provide services efficiently. Quicker screening, assessment and referral can improve care coordination within collaborative delivery models.” They go on to further admit what’s now undeniable: “In physical therapy, patients /clients are asking for more time-efficient and less costly care models. Busy lifestyles make it difficult for greater numbers of people to attend traditional BIW / TIW appointments. Applications of telehealth in physical therapy already allows PT’s to better communicate with patients / clients and provide more flexible care.” These statements were all made prior to the new realities of a post-COVID-19 clinical landscape.
Telehealth Ergonomics is a novel approach to computer workstation ergonomic assessment and modification whosetime has come – especially with the current pressures made starkly clear by the new COVID-19 reality. This emerging wayto work effectively and efficiently will reduce the personalcost of obtaining expert ergonomic assessments andinterventions and provide an evidence-based and systematic program of completing ergonomic assessments remotely. It will also offer the scrupulous practitioner a new area of expertise and commerce. It couldn’t come at a better time.
