    How do patients engage with pain medications? How much of this is influenced by their medical providers? How do we make sure that patients are in more control of their pain? Does this article really provide a good faith exploration of these issues?

    198 Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in Physical Therapy

    Support us on Patreon!

    Systemic racism is a topic that we have covered before on PT Inquest, but it has recently become the focus of worldwide attention. In this episode, we talked with Tim Vidale and Deidra Debnam from the American Academy of Sports Physical Therapy's (AASPT) Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee to discuss some of the current conversations around race. We hope that this discussion can help give some insight and initial guidance for individuals and PT organizations to push positive and effective change regarding DEI.
