We get a physical therapist’s perspective on healthcare from Caroline Morris in this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare Podcast with Rob Oliver. Caroline is from Alexandria, Virginia (just outside of Washington DC.) She is a member of the millennial generation and has worked in the fields of geriatrics and women’s health. Additionally, Caroline Morris is a health coach and staff development specialist.
Here are 3 things that stood out as Caroline Morris gave us a physical therapist’s perspective on healthcare:
· Caroline was looking for ways to help her patients that went beyond the physical therapy role that she was playing in their lives. She was looking for a way to treat her patients holistically.
· Medical professionals need to ask themselves if this is the right treatment plan for this particular patient. The more involvement the patient has in developing their home program, the more successful it will be. Collaboration is the key!
· Collaboration between members of the healthcare community is essential as well. For patients with an acute stroke, there needs to be coordination between EMS, the Emergency Department, Cardiology, Neurology and Pharmacy (from the very first moment.)
