SM_VP Friday Webcast_Gary

As part of Micah Hunt’s popular “Virtual Presentation Friday” event, vcpi’s Gary Jones joins Dr. Deborah Oranchak and Glen Rundell on January 22, 2021 from 11-12 EST for a live discussion focused on the role of physiatrists (physicians specializing in rehab and tele-rehab) in restoring functional ability and improving outcomes for those with physical or cognitive impairments or disabilities.

Physiatrists are a crucial part of caregiving for patients and residents in Senior Living centers who benefit from the specialist care provided by these professionals.

You will learn how physiatry is now being effectively delivered remotely in the age of COVID-19. The panel will also discuss an emerging long-term post-COVID-19-related physical, cognitive, and emotional condition which includes post-intensive care syndrome, a type of post-traumatic stress.

This program will offer 1 participant hour of continuing education credit through the Virginia Assisted Living Association as authorized by NAB/NCERS.
