2015 - The Voices of PT Education Podcast

In her creative keynote presentation at the 2nd annual Geneva R. Johnson Innovations in Physical Therapy Forum, Dr. Susan S. Deusinger PT, PhD, FAPTA used music to inspire change in professional education.  The “voices” calling for change in physical therapy come from many sources.

Susie chose three musical concepts as analogies of important parameters of change in our professional work – the type (timbre), the pace (tempo) and the power (dynamics) of change. Deusinger urged all physical therapists to:

  1. adopt the movement system as the core philosophy of the profession,
  2. use standardized approaches in education for more consistent outcomes, and
  3. see change in professional education as the vehicle to expand the influence of physical therapy on individual and public health across the lifespan.

With Dr. Dennis Fell, MD, PT playing the violin, Deusinger blended live music into the presentation to encourage reflection on the opportunities to use the power of education to move physical therapy toward higher levels of effectiveness. Listen to the podcast here
