LAMP Management Essentials

Date: February 11-12, 2020

Session Type: PreConference

Description: LAMP (Leadership * Administration * Management * Professionalism) was developed by the Section on Health Policy and Administration to address member needs in leadership, administration, management, and professionalism skills. Initiated in 2000, LAMP has evolved over the years to the present-day LAMP Institute for Leadership in Physical Therapy, a certification program that began in 2009. Administration and management are considered separate constructs from leadership, although clearly interdependent. A need was identified by the members for expansion of LAMP to topics germane to administration and management. At the recommendation of the HPA Board-appointed task force, the LAMP Administration and Management Subcommittee was instituted in late 2014 to develop a plan to integrate management development activities into the operations and educational offerings of the section, as part of the LAMP Committee. The plan would include actions to integrate best management practices, be financially self-sustaining, and complement existing section education. The LAMP Administration and Management Subcommittee, is composed of experienced managers charged with describing the basic “toolbox” and essentials of managerial and administrative competencies and begin developing educational offerings.

Session Type: PreConference

Description: Innovations in value-based care delivery in health systems are important in managing the resources, outcomes, and relevant cost for a target population. Important considerations made by health systems include the consistent measurement and aggregation of specific outcomes which are important to patients, balanced by the expenses required for delivery across the continuum of care. In order to have an impact on the health of the populations they serve, health systems are moving outside their traditional walls and reaching into their communities with innovative models. Many institutions are integrating more holistic approaches to address the social determinants that directly impact societal health. Physical therapists must be key in this process. Whether it is influencing care across the continuum, after discharge, or implementing community-based programs, physical therapists are instrumental in developing strategies focusing on the health of the population. A panel of experts will share best practice models that have been developed within health systems that may stimulate innovation, strengthen collaboration, improve communication, and promote effective, value-based practice.


LGBTQ+ Brave Space Training: Encouraging Difficult Dialogues in Physical Therapy Practice

Time: 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

Speakers: Melissa Hofmann, MSPT, PhD, Karla Ann Bell, PT, DPT, GCS, Chris Condran, PT, DPT and Ashley King, PT, DPT

Location: Colorado Convention Center

Room: TBA

Session Type: PreConference

Description: The Safe Zone Project was implemented to affect the climate that LGBTQ+ individuals engage in and to provide an environment for students where they feel valued and safe. Education centered on increasing awareness of LGBTQ+ identities, gender, and sexuality as well as unlearning preconceived prejudices. The “safe zone” premise was used to develop “brave spaces” in order to acknowledge and prepare students to be uncomfortable at times, while simultaneously laying ground rules to cope with that discomfort and productively challenge one another. It was a call on students to be “brave” in the face of discomfort. A GLSEN survey showed that teachers were unlikely to receive professional development regarding LGBTQ+ student issues. Three-fourths said they had some type of diversity education but less than a third said any of that training was on LGBTQ content. This preconference course will utilize the theoretical framework and course curriculum adopted by the Safe Zone Project; however, the training will be recognized under the umbrella of Brave Space Training to foster qualities of self-efficacy, empowerment, and pride among LGBTQ+ students. Specific case examples focused on increasing practitioner, faculty, and student awareness will be used to demonstrate current LGBTQ+ disparities in health care/classroom.
