#SolvePT from 5-1-12

Another great tweetchat on #solvept, ended up being a discussion more on use of outcomes measures (at least between @donreagan @snippetphysther, myself, and @ptbise.

@nanc765 @Jerry_DurhamPT #solvept - that's what i am getting at! Data is good, and helpful, but can still be lacking on its own..

VegasAthletesPTMay 01, 10:57pm via web
@SnippetPhysTher @The_OMPT #solvept is your question referring to prospective patients? I would guess they want to get better.

“@The_OMPT#solvept more courses should have live pt treatments like McKenzie Institute, directly applicable” need pragmatic application!

There is tremendous value in looking at old concepts and technique through the lens of new research, no need for new jargon to sell #solvePT

Does the APTA or any other body get money for cert of CEU? Perhaps this could be part of the prob#followthemoney #solvePT

Could something be created like what journals use to indicate strength of the research? #solvePT

Late to the party, are we talking about CE = Clinical Education? #solvept

RT @PhysicalTherapy: CE that says "evidence based" is redundant and illusory at the same time #solvept <- agree

buyer beware-look for fusion of academia & "real PT's" who see "real patients" & get "real situations" w "real social complexities" #solvept

isn't it a little bit curious that out of 220+ #physicaltherapyprograms that less than handful offer CE? #solvept

@Kintegrate I fell for that lingo stuff once... was MAJORLY disappointed because it was re-gifted versus new & I expected new #solvePT

#solvept the trick is critical thinking skills taught to PT students. With that much of the mystery disappears

@SnippetPhysTher People create new lingo from old concepts and call it new to sell IMO, #solvePT, theory changes with ed techniques do not

via @PhysicalTherapy: buyer beware means if dude w reflex hammer selling CE wants to use it for other than traditional DTR's run #solvept

#solvept I think research has created a common scientific language that validate many effective PT interventions

By clearing house I mean website #solvePT

@Kintegrate Does the lingo create an increase desire to be cool and want to learn it because it's new? #solvePT
KintegrateMay 01, 9:06pm via HootSuite
If we could create a central clearing house with user ratings etc perhaps that is a start. #solvePT, we would need reviewers to but into it

Education should be de-mysticized and use language that is common instead of inventing some lingo to sell#solvePT
SnippetPhysTherMay 01, 9:03pm via TweetDeck
@PhysicalTherapy Should it be reasonable for buyer beware? Or could something help improve the ability to choose? #solvept
PhysicalTherapyMay 01, 9:01pm via TweetDeck
CE in #physicaltherapy is unregulated which is fine but definitely buyer beware #solvept
SnippetPhysTherMay 01, 9:01pm via TweetDeck
So, does anyone have any ideas on how to not fall into a fad trap of buzzwords when choosing continuing education? #solvePT
