The Pennsylvania Chapter is inaugurating special programming related to education at its 2014 Annual Conference. This inaugural event, Educating Patients, Colleagues, and Students in the 21St Century, features a keynote by Eric Robertson, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT, titledInnovations in Teaching Patients, Colleagues, and Students. If you missed his inspiring talk at ELC last October this is your chance to hear his message! 

The day long workshop is Friday October 31, 2014, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Course Description: Almost all of us spend a good portion of our days in educating others: our patients, our students, our colleagues. Science and technology continually bring us new ways of thinking about how to do this teaching most effectively to reach the desired learning outcome. Whether teaching patients how to do exercises, colleagues how to stay safe in their work environment, or students how to develop skills as physical therapists and physical therapist assistants, this program will enhance our knowledge and skills as teachers. This program is approved for 5 general CEUS for Pennsylvania Licensure renewal.
