Sushi, Cocktails and Conversations: Episode 1
What direction do we need to go as a profession to ensure we build momentum, gain public attention and work together collaboratively? What do you need to feel supported in your practice, connected with your peers and something about growth?
Watch this recorded webinar to hear from Sanjeev Bhatia, Greg Leham, Jesse Awenus, Nicole Sullivan and Maggie Bergeron.
We sat down together to have sushi and cocktails, while chatting about the physiotherapy and rehabilitation industries
This webinar webinar was driven by audience questions and comments but some of the topics that came up were:
- The number 1 lesson learned in our careers
- Is research congruent with clinical priorities?
- As a profession, physios are resistant to change and are hesitant to integrate new technologies and innovations. Fear or fact based?
- Is social media important for us professionally?
- Predictions for the next 10 years in our industry
