Welcome to the blog!
My name is Eric Trauber and I am a physical therapist.
I am board-certified orthopaedic clinical specialist from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties. I am also a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists and completed my training at Regis University.
My passion is to improve the development of aspiring physical therapists in various facets of clinical practice including:
- Building a strong therapeutic alliance
- Creating a holistic clinical framework
- Enhancing the patient experience
- Identifying specific factors that contribute to the autonomy of clinical practice
My previous learning experiences has helped me understand what are some strategies that we can implement in order to improve patient care. Having these strategies in place will allow for the clinician to dynamic and adaptable to varying clinical presentations. In order to maximize these strategies, there are multiple components to consider:
- Understand – understand the patient’s perspective and what they are experiencing
- Reflect – reflecting from those interactions and determine what are the best strategies for the specific clinical presentation at hand
- Refine – refine your approach to improve patient outcomes and enhance the overall patient experience
The goal of this blog is to provide insightful information and guide to help students, early professionals, and expert clinicians to enhance the patient experience and improve clinical outcomes.
The ability to share knowledge with one another is truly one of the most powerful things we can do. Therefore, it becomes ever so important to become a resource for our peers as well as the next generation of clinicians.
I will leave you with this quote…
