The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the world in dramatic ways, and physical therapists have been impacted in their daily activities in treating patients in their clinical settings. With the US on a virtual lockdown, many therapists are looking to telehealth as a way to bridge the gap and continue to treat and progress their patients during this pandemic.
The Rehab Essentials Telehealth Educational Series provides a step by step process for establishing a telehealth program as well as delineate the differences between telehealth, e-visits and phone assessment and management services through six on-demand sessions you can watch at any time. This includes three full length, educational telehealth sessions conducted by Dr. Jen Gamboa who evaluates and treats her example patient, Dr. Robbie Leonard. These are recorded in real time, so participants can feel free to fast forward or watch the entire sessions to get an idea of the flow of an evaluation and follow up visit. Our last session, was a live Q & A Session, where participants asked our experts, Dr. Jen Gamboa & Dr. Robbie Leonard questions on how to establish a telehealth program.
