You mentioned in the clinical bottom line that future studies will work on tailoring education levels to specific levels of chronicity. For your future research, what are the next steps you’ll take to find ways to tailor the education levels that are needed for PT’s to help carry out adequate therapy for PWP?
Great poster and layout!
According to the chart, home health physical therapists scored the lowest in overall knowledge questions however they scored toward the top in the perceived knowledge, importance, and preparedness. What is your reasoning or theory as to why this is and what is currently being done to close the knowledge gap for physical therapists who treat PWP? Thank you
