Today, I'm broadcasting the second interview I recorded live at the Physical Therapy NEXT Exposition & Conference back in June. I want to thank the APTA for arranging this great interview on what's a very important topic for the profession. Each year at the convention, the John H.P. Maley Lecture Award is presented to an APTA member who has demonstrated clinical expertise and a significant contribution to the physical therapy profession. The lecture is considered to be one of the highlights at the APTA's NEXT Conference & Exposition. This year's lecture was awarded to Dr. Tara Jo Manal. It's titled Strike While the Iron is Hot. I really love that topic.
Dr. Manal was a Founding Co-Chair of APTA's PT Now initiative, is Director of Clinical Services and Residency Training at the University of Delaware's Physical Therapy Department, as well as an associate professor at the DPT program at the University of Delaware. She is board certified in orthopedics as well as sports physical therapy. Her focus is translating the evidence and how it could be implemented into clinical practice. I spoke to Dr. Manal about the importance of standardized practice and how we can prevent the unwanted variation, which can be such a challenge when there's so much information and a variety of treatments available to us today. This is an important topic whether you're a clinician, an administrator or a patient. Settle in and take a listen and of course make sure to share it with your friends and family on social media.
