1 Rehab Insider Volume 1 Issue 3 Inside this Issue Peds Residency...1 Quality Projects..2 MS Society Award.3 OT Burn Resident..4 Peds Physical Therapy Residency Receives Accreditation The Physical Therapy Pediatric Residency at UNC received accreditation from the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). This program serves as a post-professional residency for physical therapists in pediatrics. Raleigh Marathon.5 TBI Lecture Series..6 Rehab Highlights 7 Dr. Debby Givens, director of the Division of Physical Therapy at UNC, said the success of the residency lies in strong partnerships between the UNC Health Care Inpatient Rehabilitation Center and the Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities (CIDD). The CIDD houses the Leadership Education Neurodevelopmental Disorders (LEND) grant, which prepares trainees from diverse professional disciplines to assume leadership roles in their respective fields by insuring high levels of interdisciplinary clinical competence. Givens also credits residency director Dana McCarty, PT, DPT, PCS, and codirector Brian Trabulsi, PT, MPT, ATC, who have led an exceptional team of committed therapists and mentors in meeting this important milestone.

2 Quality Improvement Projects Continue to Enhance Rehab Service Line II The Falls Team obtained orange gait belts for each of the patient beds. The belts are hung on a hook inside the room and are labeled with UNC Rehab along with the room/bed number. Nursing staff was educated on the proper use of the gait belts and is finding them to be a useful tool in the care of their patients. Families wishing to purchase a gait belt for home use may do so at the Carolina Care at Home Store located on the ground floor. For better communication, the Patient Care Boards are being updated with symbols that replace employee freehand. Positive feedback has been received from patients, families and staff. All boards will be updated with the new process in the next couple of months. Thanks to our Patient and Family Advisory Board members who gave input into the Care Boards. Your feedback is greatly appreciated! The Outpatient Scheduling Team continues to work on fine tuning the standard work that has been developed. The No Show rates for new evaluations are down, with a positive correlation shown between reminder calls from the front desk staff and patients coming in for appointments. Therapists and front desk staff are working collaboratively to get patients on the wait list in as soon as possible. Management is continuing to meet weekly to assess data and proactively deal with issues that arise. The Center for Rehabilitation Care (CRC) conducted a 5S (Sort, set, standardize, shine, and sustain) event in hour blocks over several weeks in January and February. Staff has optimized their storage space and can find equipment more easily due to organizing and labeling. This enables them to spend more time with their patients and less time hunting and gathering. It s been a real Before morale booster! After II

3 CRC Designated Rehabilitation Partners in MS Care Facility III The UNC Health Care Center for Rehabilitation Care (CRC) was presented with a certificate recognizing its new designation as a Rehabilitation Partners in MS Care facility. Rehabilitation Partners in MS Care is a national program which recognizes and supports quality care for people with multiple sclerosis and fosters strong collaboration between the CRC and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The partnership will create optimal care and support for people living with MS. Kaye Gooch, Executive Vice President of the Greater Carolinas Chapter of the National MS Society, presents the award to CRC Staff The designation recognizes the collaboration of various therapies - physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy - in continuing rehabilitation for MS patients. Through this collaboration, individuals with MS will be made aware of the expertise and opportunities available at the CRC. Neuropsychiatrists and physiatrists (rehabilitation physicians) work together with the therapy team and other health care professionals to provide comprehensive MS care. The program will also offer professional and patient education resources, including support groups and case management. The nearby UNC Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation clinic at the CRC includes a rehabilitation neuropsychiatry team, which conducts evaluations for MS patients, recommends cognitive treatments and provides information about their services to researchers from the UNC DPT MS Step Up program. Physiatrists also manage rehabilitation care for patients. The Department of PM&R also includes the Program on Integrative Medicine (PIM), which provides education to healthprofessions about the use of complementary and alternative medicine for various conditions. In addition, PIM offers mind-body education programs, including mindfulness, mind-body skills training, and restorative yoga, which may be helpful as adjunctive therapies for those with MS. Kaye Gooch Diane Meyer "Becoming a partner in care is a unique opportunity to build on the quality care we already provide here at the CRC," said Diane Meyer, PT, Multiple Sclerosis Certified Specialist through the Consortium of MS Centers. "Through our collaboration with the MS Society, we will work toward further increasing availability of resources for individuals with MS and their care partners." III

4 New Resident Steps Into OT Burn Residency Program IV I am an Occupational Therapist and currently a resident at UNC OT Burn Residency Program. Prior to attending UNC OT Burn Residency program, I worked at a private outpatient pediatric facility for 14 months in Virginia. I have had a strong interest in burn care management ever since I heard about Occupational Therapy s role in helping patients with burn injuries during a graduate school clinical tutorial class at James Madison University. Hayley Mata - OT Burn Resident For more information regarding the UNC Occupational Therapy Burn Residency Program: -otburn-residency-flyer.pdf To learn more about burn care and to be more knowledgeable about the survivors experiences, I volunteered at Central Virginia Burn Camp in Charlottesville, Virginia. This gave me the opportunity to work alongside occupational therapists, firefighters, and nurses by providing a fun-filled week of camp activities for children burn survivors from the ages of 7 to 17. Additionally, I had opportunities to assist in treating burn injuries with my Level II Fieldwork supervisor at Children s Hospital of the King Daughter s at Harbour View in Suffolk, Virginia. After these experiences, I knew that I wanted my OT career to be in burn care management. When I learned about UNC OT Burn Residency program, I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity for me to advance my clinical skills and knowledge in burn care management. This program provides a variety of opportunities including advocating to the general assembly, conducting research, and teaching burn-care management to UNC OT students. This residency program also allows me to learn even more by working alongside my mentors and a medical team who are extremely knowledgeable and skilled at their work and specialties. Additionally, this program provides me an opportunity to work with both pediatric and adult populations. What I hope to gain after completing the OT Burn Residency program is an in-depth knowledge and skills that will allow me to contribute towards the total recovery of patients with burn injuries. IV

5 V UNC Therapists Make Huge Difference at Raleigh Marathon UNC Therapy Services provided pre- and postrace coverage at the Raleigh Rock and Roll Marathon for Team V of the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research. Braving the 34 degree starting temperatures, nearly 100 runners who had reached their fundraising goal for Team V were treated to individualized stretching, soft tissue mobilization, screening, foam rolling, and injury management advice. UNC Therapy Services physical therapists Keith Compson and Brendan Malay teamed up with PT students Walter Young and Chris Green to help the marathoners and half-marathoners aches and pains. The highlight of the day came when the UNCTS crew ran with the last Team V runner across the finish line a tremendous sign of how dedicated individuals can tackle obstacles and raise awareness and funds for such an important cause! V

6 TBI Lecture Series Advances Knowledge And Understanding Throughout March, in observance of brain injury month, UNC Rehab Services hosted a series of lectures devoted to traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs. Held each Wednesday afternoon, the series included information on different aspects of the TBI experience and recovery. The lectures covered information ranging from ICU (intensive care unit) protocols, to the role music can play during treatment, to an overview of current medical knowledge, and to community reintegration. The final talk, and highlight of the series, was the panel of caregivers of TBI patients who discussed their personal experiences. Attendees reported that hearing directly from these individuals gave insight into how to improve interactions with future patients and their families. This series is one of the many examples of UNC s mission of Leading, Teaching, Caring. VI VI

7 The primary goal of the Rehabilitation Service Line at UNC Hospitals is to provide quality rehabilitation and therapy services in an efficient, cost-effective manner consistent with the hospital s mission statement and strategic initiatives. The Rehabilitation Service Line consists of Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Pathology, Rehabilitation Nursing and Recreational Therapy and Child Life as well as the 30-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit.

Of these, almost 75% were discharged back into the community. This is a greater percentage when compared to similar facilities in the region and throughout the nation!
