Non - Traditional Education for Healthcare Clinicians and Organizations

Why we are unique

OUR MISSION

To help clinicians and healthcare organizations

improve outcomes and achieve financial success

by reducing CLINICIAN BURNOUT

and

improving the PATIENT EXPERIENCE

Workshops for Healthcare Organizations

The 2 factors that most impact the bottom line at every healthcare organization are: 

CLINICIAN BURNOUT and PATIENT EXPERIENCE

That includes nursing homes, rehab centers, hospitals, home health agencies, and outpatient clinics.

WHY?

CLINICIAN BURNOUT leads to higher employee turnover rates resulting in another round of investing in finding and training new staff.

Poor PATIENT EXPERIENCE leads to fewer referrals and a lower census.

We can help you improve your bottom line by training your staff on strategies to 

reduce CLINICIAN BURNOUT and improve PATIENT EXPERIENCE.

Course Accreditations

These courses are unique psychology focused physical therapy continuing education courses and occupational therapy continuing education courses. Physical therapy training programs and occupational therapy training programs usually focus on developing clinical skills, but we at Psychology for the Body believe that non-clinical skills are equally as valuable to outcomes. Also, physical therapy certifications and occupational therapy certifications are primarily clinical, but our certification in Patient Experience Design provides clinicians with an expertise in patient experience. Enjoy all the opportunities for physical therapy classes online and occupational therapy classes online to improve your non-clinical skillset.
