BACK TO BETTER: POST PANDEMIC EDUCATION

Back to Better: Post-Pandemic Education, Research, and Clinical Care in Rehabilitation

Description: The United States is currently on pace to hit herd immunity from COVID-19 this summer. For the first time in more than a year, organizations are actively exploring how the post-pandemic world should function. All of our new habits and processes for clinical care, human-subject research studies and education within the field of rehabilitation need to be reviewed. But rather than just snapping back to “normal,” how do we “build back better” as Dr. Ngozi Ezike recently asked?

In this 60-minute panel discussion with rehabilitation leaders from Chicago, South Carolina, and New York City, we will explore how we can capitalize on what we have learned and what we look forward to reintroducing as the world reopens. We will discuss how the adoption of technology, such as video conferences and telehealth has enhanced our program delivery and clinical care, and where it is falling short. Finally, we will compare how these programs from across the country are re-introducing in-person programming. Come prepared to ask questions and share insights from your own institutions. 

Objectives: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify what changes implemented due to COVID-19 that clinical, academic and research centers expect to retain, such as Telehealth, hybrid and on-demand learning, remote and flexible working schedules, etc.
  • Discuss the challenges and benefits of re-opening clinics, medical programs and research studies.
  • Compare the experiences and practices of rehabilitation in programs across the country as they start to figure out re-opening plans.
  • Discuss the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic had on resident and fellowship training and how that can be addressed over the next year.
