Who Do You Think You Are? The Impact of Professional Identity on Professional Practice

April 28, 2021 | 4:00 p.m. ET

Speaker: Zubin Austin

In professions such as medicine, pharmacy, and nursing, there is increasing interest in understanding how professional identity and self-understanding of profession-hood shapes clinical practice and day-to-day interactions with patients and colleagues. Professional identity defines characteristics such as trust and capacity to collaborate, behaviors such as communication and conflict management, and psychological responses such as resilience and self-confidence. In this workshop, professional identity literature from other professions will be used and participants will collaborate to identify opportunities for application of this theory and these methods to physical therapy and rehabilitation medicine professions.

Imaging Referral by Physical Therapists: Progression of PT Education, Advocacy, Practice and Regulation

July 14, 2021 | 4:00 p.m. ET

Speakers: Jeanne DeKrey, Daniel Markels, and Charles Hazle

This multi-speaker session explores the issues accompanying the evolving interest in imaging referral as a component of general physical therapist practice in the US. Historical, present, and future practice perspectives are presented with attention to the challenges likely to be encountered as this is adopted state-by-state. The number of jurisdictions with imaging referral privileges is steadily increasing with many state associations having pursuit of imaging referral privileges in their strategic plans. While long incorporated into the practice models in the US military and several other countries, the addition of imaging referral and the responsibilities attending the privilege in general PT practice presents new challenges for educational institutions, established practitioners, payers, and regulatory agencies. Additionally, interactions with other health care providers may present new issues many may have not yet considered. This session seeks to increase awareness of these topic areas and stimulate discussion, including consideration of factors common and differing among jurisdictions.

The Future of the Professions in the Age of COVID-19

February 25, 2021 | 4:00 p.m. ET

Speaker: Daniel Susskind

In this talk, Daniel Susskind will explore the future of the professions in the age of COVID-19. Drawing on his best-selling books, The Future of the Professions (OUP, 2015) and A World Without Work (Allen Lane, 2020), he will set out two futures for the professions. Both rest on technology. One is reassuringly familiar. It is a more efficient version of what we have today. The other is transformational—a gradual replacement of professionals by increasingly capable systems. In an Internet society, the professions will look remarkably different from today, and we will neither need nor want lawyers, doctors, teachers, architects, the clergy, consultants, and many others to work as they did in the twentieth century.
