DESCRIPTION OF SESSION:
In order to provide the best possible physiotherapy care to our patients, outcome measures are needed; but have you heard of electronic outcome measures (eOM)? In this session, physiotherapists Mark Werneke and Kerry Kittson will discuss the value of eOM for both public and private physiotherapists and share patient examples. You will learn how eOM engages patients in their care, guides treatment, facilitates professional development, and is a timesaver for you and your patients.
To provide physiotherapy eOM services to members, CPA has partnered with Focus On Therapeutic Outcomes Inc. (FOTO). Sign up for this free Webinar, and you will receive a coupon for 2 months of free FOTO use!
