I would never have expected a hotel like this to be in Spokane – it is so ornate, so luxurious. And the Spokane Falls are something to behold. Back to the reason we’re here….
This morning John Barnes (APTA CEO, not the other one) gave a presentation on the state of healthcare reform and how the APTA is positioned. I appreciated that he simply stated what everyone agrees on and what they don’t, and how the APTA can participate and move forward. I did miss out on the town hall forum at lunch in favor of sunshine, a walk, and the falls however.
I’m attending a 2-day presentation on geriatric orthopedics by Jennifer Bottomley, PT, PhD. She is a great presenter, and today was a great review of aging on body systems and modifying some tests for the patient. It seems to be more directed toward outpatient, but I can still come away with things for working with my SNF patients. More thoughts/ comments tomorrow – I need my sleep as I have a long drive tomorrow night.
