My guest is Hannah Johnson. She is a clinician as well as an educator. She earned DPT in 2013, as well as a Geriatric Clinical Specialist certification in 2016. In 2018, she published her book, Psychosocial Elements of Physical Therapy in effort to fill the gap in mental health education for physical therapists and physical therapy students. Her PhD research explores how to improve interdisciplinary quality care in nursing homes. In this episode, you'll learn about the biggest obstacles in physical therapists management of complex patients. You’ll learn how residents of long-term care facilities can keep up their physical activity, as well as evidence-based supported practical strategies for managing behavior such as agitation, aggression, refusal of care and inappropriateness that are often associated with various medical, psychological and social conditions. I highly recommend you check out Hannah's book. It's an excellent resource for physical therapists and other health professionals. Without further ado, let's begin and let's meet Hannah.
