APTA is continuing to expand its collection of video content on a variety of topics. Here's a quick rundown of some of our latest offerings.
Explore Executive Leadership Possibilities
We've partnered with the American College of Healthcare Executives to create a three-part series of APTA Live events focused on PTs and PTAs making the transition into high-level executive leadership roles. The live sessions are recorded, so you can tune in any time.
Part 1: From Clinic to Executive Leadership. PTs share their stories of moving into high-level executive leadership positions. (58 minutes)
Part 2: Preparing for Executive Roles. Hear from PTs who have developed their executive skills and knowledge by becoming Fellows of the American College of Healthcare Executives. (58 minutes)
Coming Nov. 30, 8 p.m. ET: Being a Physical Therapy Clinic CEO. Join us live for the final installment in the series. (But don't worry if you can't make it — this one will be recorded, too.)
The APTA Fit for Practice initiative, powered by Hyperice, is a new free program that helps you recover, evolve, and remain resilient. Sign up to receive weekly emails that include links to webinars, podcasts, articles, and courses (some offering CEUs) covering movement, resiliency, restoration, and practice health, tailored for the physical therapy profession. Launched in October, Fit for Practice has already produced several videos available to everyone. They include:
Strategies To Manage Mental Health Issues. Hear from Kevin Wilk PT, DPT, FAPTA, and Clinical & Sports Psychologist Bhrett McCabe, PhD, to get tools and resources to address your mental and emotional well-being in your professional and personal life. (54 min.)
Time to Exercise. Has the stress of the pandemic affected your exercise routine? Learn about how to get back on track, including where to start, and how to safely try something new. (43 min.)
Ground Yourself in Optimism. The harder you work, the more important it is to recover well. Mindset expert Michael Gervais, PhD, discusses the importance of "thinking well." (3 minutes)
Improve the Health of Society
The APTA Student Assembly regularly offers live online events that, while targeted at PT and PTA students, can be compelling viewing for PTs and PTAs at any stage in their careers. While some require advance registration to view live, all are available as recordings afterward. Two recent examples:
How Physical Therapists Can Make an Impact on the Opioid Crisis. In a recording of this Oct. 24 event, Eric Kruger, PT, DPT, MS, PhD, and Jake Magel, PT, PhD, DSc, discuss the latest in pain science and the important role PTs can play in responding to the opioid crisis. (60 min.)
Prevention, Health Promotion, and Wellness. This "APTA Student Social" event from Oct. 17 features Zachary Rethron, PT, DPT, PhD, and Hadiya Green Guerrero, PT, DPT, in an interactive conversation on the ways PTs and PTAs can provide prevention, health promotion, and wellness services to individuals and populations across the lifespan.
