Clinical leaders from two nationally recognized therapy companies, Aegis Therapies® and HealthPRO® Heritage, are teaming up for a unique webinar event to share best practices and separate ‘fact from fiction’ about the provision of therapy services amidst the COVID-19 crisis.
“Therapy in the World of COVID: What Physical, Occupational & Speech Therapy Clinicians Need to Know” is designed specifically for clinicians providing post-acute therapy during COVID-19, and will be presented live Friday, April 17, from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Central time. A recording will be made available following the live event.
The webinar will focus on best practices for infection control, clinical decision-making and exposure protocols, as well as related topics such as CMS waivers and telehealth services. Presenters will also discuss the increased opportunity therapists have at this unprecedented time to serve as essential members of the interdisciplinary team.
With a combined clinical workforce of 18,000, the presenters will also share the most frequently asked questions from their teams and the latest information and responses to what is currently on the minds of clinicians across the country.
This webinar is offered free of charge for therapists and therapy assistants in any setting — but particularly those in skilled nursing, CCRC, independent & assisted living, home health and outpatient who may be working within a community or facility with suspected/confirmed COVID-19 cases.
