WorkWell is one of three American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) practices selected to collaborate with ABIM. The other two are Kessler Rehab Center and Johns Hopkins, WorkWell notes in a media release.
The Building Trust initiative is a multi-faceted effort to increase conversation, thought leadership, research, and best practices to elevate trust as an essential organizing principle for improving healthcare.
These are the same principles that are critical for creating a world-class workplace safety program, WorkWell adds.
“We are proud to be recognized by the ABIM Foundation and APTA for our work in building trust in workplace safety. On-site physical therapists focus on preventing work-limiting problems, helping people who often have chronic conditions stay at work, many of whom work long shifts and reside in areas that don’t have readily accessible healthcare.
Being on-site enables therapists to take proactive measures to identify injury risks and treat work-related injuries before impacting people’s economic livelihood.”
— Karil Reibold, Acting Chief Executive Officer at WorkWell
Representatives from each of the three APTA practices recently participated in an informative Q&A video panel discussion regarding ways to promote exemplary practices that foster trust and trustworthiness in physical therapy.
