I was so happy to have attended the 4 days of programs at the CSM 2013 in San Diego. I attended programmings from the Health Policy and Administration, Geriatrics and Acute Care sections. Not only were the programmings I attended gave me so much information to digest and utilize on my return to work but this Event reminded how much I love my profession. I have been a Therapist for 30 years and listening to the "newer" therapist have great therapeutic discussions renewed my PT soul. I would like to mention inparticular the speakers who presented the material needed on Medicares new Functional Limitation Reporting presented by the Health Policy and Administration section which affects my clinic. They were great and I know many people in the audience were so very appreciative with the work they put into presenting the material they collected from Washington and CSM. Thanks to all who presented at this great event. Looking forward to next CSM 2014!
