The clinical summary on Down syndrome available on PTNow is not only a great resource on its own, it's also a great springboard for lively discussion. See for yourself by checking out the video from a recent Google+ "hangout" sponsored by PTNow.
In a discussion that ranged from the use of to the need for "culture change" in attitudes about physical activity and obesity, to the importance of communicating appropriate motor milestones to the families of children with Down syndrome, moderator Mary Tischio Blackinton, PT, EdD, CEEAA, GCS, clinical summary author Kathy Martin, PT, DHS, and pediatric physical therapist and educator Tracy Stoner, PT, DPT, PCS, connected the dots between evidence resources and day-to-day practice.
The panel answered presubmitted questions, but also set aside time to provide an overview of the summary, and the ways the summary's content is enriched through PTNow, which allows readers to access references and other supporting materials while reading the summary itself. More on the discussion—including information about a future presentation focused on orthotics—can be found at the PTNow blog.
