Replay 2015 Session J3: How to Start Recreational Therapy Services at Skilled Nursing Facilities

Overview: Laura Kelly, CTRS Skilled Nursing Facilities including long term care and short-term rehabilitation units have been identified as one of the largest practice settings for recreational therapists. A common misuse of recreational therapists in these settings is placing them in activity director positions. Consequently, this professional trend has significant impacts on the future advancement of the RT profession. The purpose of this webinar is to convert traditional activity programs into physician referred recreational therapy services in SNF’s. Topics of discussion will include: thesis findings (administrative perspectives on RT), current professional issues that challenge the advancement of the RT profession, financial selling points, marketing strategies, and steps to consider when starting a RT program. Expires: 8/18/2020
