In this 1-hour course, occupational therapy practitioners will learn about the concepts of eHealth and participatory medicine—and, how they are shaping the future of our profession.
Both eHealth and participatory medicine will give you a new lens to understand some of the seismic shifts that are happening in health care right now. And, the good news is that even amidst rapid change, the basic tenet of both concepts, of helping the patient to be more active in their care, has long been a tenant of OT and will leave you feeling affirmed of the value of the work we do.
The course will begin with a breakdown of the research, and then Lauren Sheehan, OTD, OTR/L, an occupational therapist and rehab technology expert, will join us to discuss practical takeaways.
We’re excited to explore this topic with you!
