We have some exciting news to share with you!

The companies you have come to rely upon for evidenced-based healthcare education are uniting under one brand for the good of PT, OT and all the healthcare professions we serve.

In January 2020, Evidence In Motion (EIM), International Spine and Pain Institute (ISPI), KinetaCore, and Neuro Recovery and Training Institute (NeuroRTI), are becoming one. We aren’t just changing our name; we are uniting our faculty and staff to truly work as one team to bring you innovative and evidence-based education that will elevate your clinic and your patient care. Together, we’re going to take healthcare education to the next, NEXT level.

So, what does this mean for you? In January 2020:

  • All of our companies are coming under one name – Evidence In Motion.
  • Course and program options – including pain sciences, dry needling and neuro offerings – will live on one website at evidenceinmotion.com.
  • You’ll still find your favorite faculty member teaching your favorite topics.
  • We’re elevating your student experience as you pursue your passion and goals.

As ONE EIM, you will find us tirelessly pursuing our shared vision: reimagining healthcare education to humanize patient care in every community.

We’ve always been in this all together. Now we are making it official.

Hi Chris and Mark, I LOVED this podcast and diving into the importance of the subjective exam! I also have been inspired by the work of Atul Gawande's "Checklist Manifesto" and have applied that reasoning to creating PT evaluation "checklists" to facilitate some of the similar points that you mention: keeping a logical flow and structure for an exam, asking comprehensive red flag screening questions, guiding a systematic decision making process and allowing for "checking" and self-reflection after patient evaluations to assess whether my clinical thought process for diagnosis and treatment followed a rational progression (also as a teaching tool for students learning exam skills). Would love your feedback on how I apply this and if you find these checklists useful (Below are 2 links to blog posts that I wrote specifically about these ideas, and within are links to my checklists): https://sapiensmoves.com/2018/03/31/can-a-checklist-make-you-a-better-physical-therapist/ https://sapiensmoves.com/2019/08/18/checklists-for-physical-therapists-re-visited/ Thanks very much for sharing your experience and expertise! Best, Leda

Heidi, I appreciate you sharing your thoughts. I share in your frustration and certainly agree we need to think creatively and be pro-active when evaluating the administrative side of things and our commitment to high level documentation. I also agree that patient advocacy is the primary driver of change for an organization like CMS. My greatest frustration is that this seems fairly obvious, however the APTA has done nothing to communicate these changes to the patients directly other than social media. Drug companies long ago realized that they needed to cut out the middle man and make the case for their products directly to the consumer. As a result, every other commercial these days is from a drug manufacturer, so now patients go into the doctor's office asking about these drugs instead of waiting for the doctor's suggestion that they might help. We wouldn't still be bombarded by drug ads if they weren't effective. I can't understand why the APTA has not used some of it's marketing budget to speak directly to consumers about our services so patients were educated about the benefits of physical therapy, so they were aware how CMS policies will affect their care and can get directly involved, so when they went in to see the doctor because of neck pain or balance issues that they are the ones asking to go to PT. You point out that we must think proactively and advocate, but when productivity requirements continue to go up and more personal time is spent on documentation we need to rely on our professional association. I feel it is time that they consider some forward thinking and radical changes to the way they do business. I refer to the old adage that doing what you have always done and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity. The APTA needs to change their methods and communicate directly with our current and future patients if we are to stop this steady decline in reimbursement and spread the word about the benefits of physical therapy care.
