Partnering with Therapists Becoming More Prevalent

collaborate

Betta Ferrendelli’s recent article in the O&P Edge, Partnering With Therapists: Improving Patient Access and Outcomes Through Collaboration, is a good look at why the relationship between O&P and the therapy community is so important.

Physical Therapists are lucky if they receive three credit hours of O&P training throughout their entire collegiate careers.  So who better to educate therapists about orthotics and prosthetics than orthotists and prosthetists?

Providing regular in-services to your therapists is a great way to strengthen relationships and showcase your expertise as a clinician.  Learn more about education-based marketing.
