Therapy Times Establishes New Group Blog

February 01, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
NORRISTOWN, Pa., – Therapy Times, the only multidisciplinary online community for nutrition, physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapists, announces its new Therapy Times group blog section.

“The new Therapy Times group blog section underscores the publication’s primary mission: providing a network where therapists learn more about their profession as well as the disciplines with which they work closely,” says Heather Brennan Koitzsch, RD, publisher of Therapy Times and president of the Valley Forge Publishing Group. “The group blog provides a window into one particular facility’s collaborative model, so readers can learn, be inspired, network and implement change to enhance patient care in their facility.”

Collaboration is progressively vital to healthcare facilities as staffing demands increase and responsibilities are shared. In addition, recently published evidence-based practices strongly support a “whole-person” approach to rehabilitation, where therapists work together to better achieve the patient’s goals and enhance the continuum of care. Therapy Times strives to supply this growing demand with innovative communication tools – such as the group blog – as well as cutting-edge editorial and networking tools.

Therapy Times’ new group blog section is designed to focus on one healthcare facility’s group of therapists each month. For that month, the therapists involved can detail their collaboration initiatives, creative therapy models, intervention techniques, session structures and more.

The Therapy Times group blog launches Feb. 1, with five therapy practitioners from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
