Recommended Sessions with Doug Cundiff: CSM 2019

APTA’s 2019 Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C., January 23-26, 2019. Thousands of committed and innovative professionals will be in attendance for the country’s largest physical therapy conference to network and learn with like-minded people. The program is stacked this year with hands-on, pre-conference courses, educational sessions, and more, so there are numerous opportunities for learning and professional/business growth.  However, there is only so much time in the day and that time should be used wisely and efficiently.  Similar to my PPS 2018 blog post, I’ve gathered a list of sessions I recommend attending at CSM 2019.  I encourage you to consider attending the sessions below that focus on building effective leadership skills, developing an exceptional workforce in a patient-outcomes payment environment, and of course, reimbursements.
