68. Corporate Wellness: But Make it Sexy (and Impactful, and Profitable) with Ryan Baugus of HQPT

68. Corporate Wellness: But Make it Sexy (and Impactful, and Profitable) with Ryan Baugus of HQPT

In today's episode, we sit down with founder of HQPT, Ryan Baugus, and we discuss something we are very excited to bring to this community: a fresh perspective on Corporate Wellness.

When Ryan was telling me about what they are doing with corporate wellness, it felt like something you all needed to hear.

This could be the perfect thing for you to explore in 2023 not only as a way to make a large community impact, but as a killer way to beef up additional revenue streams for your clinical business.

In this 40' conversation, Ryan explains how and why they began their corporate wellness initiative, what a modern day CALU-aligned corporate wellness partnership looks like, and how YOU, yes, YOU, can look get started with seeing if this makes sense for your business in 2023.

Ryan is going to be working a select number of people to help them bring this to their own companies. So if this episode resonated with you, you can apply HERE or reach out to Ryan directly @hq_pt

66. Cooking = Rehab with Derek Miles

66. Cooking = Rehab with Derek Miles

What if we told you one of the ultimate keys to growing as a clinician could be found from the field of…Cooking?
 
Today, we are joined by one of the BIGGEST influences on the Level Up and CALU community, Derek Miles.
 
Derek is one of those people that is loaded with wisdom, and his unique background in cooking provides some ripe opportunities for analogies and incredible lessons that transcend the kitchen and take us into the clinic.
 
While he is famous for his cut rate IG series “cooking with adhesions,” this discussion is focused on a totally different set of key messages to be gleaned from the culinary field.
 
I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation, and think you will too! So give this episode a listen and make sure you are following Derek (@derek_barbellmedicine)Please be sure to give our podcast a rating if you find it helpful, and share it around!

65. Clin Ed Series: Embracing the Gray to Improve Clinical Confidence

In this special episode of the clin ed series, we bring you the audio cast of a free lecture recorded and housed on our CALU YouTube.

This presentation was originally created for a local DPT program, but it serves as the perfect piece for this aspect of our clin ed curriculum.

In this podcast you will:

  • Appreciate the inherent uncertainty embedded in clinical care.
  • Understand why embracing uncertainty allows for more authentic communication skills and clinical confidence.
  • Explore how to cultivate humility and why this is critical for doctor-patient relationships and meaningful professional development.

We hope that after listening to this, you will have more guidance, direction, and confidence with your clinical communication skills and critical thinking!

64. Clin Ed Series: Reconciling and Establishing a Rock Solid Orthopedic Foundation

64. Clin Ed Series: Reconciling and Establishing a Rock Solid Orthopedic Foundation

Have you ever felt:

  • The things you learned in school don't matter?
  • Paralyzed by the nocebo overlords on how to communicate exam findings in a way that doesn't nocebo your patients?

Well then, this episode is most definitely for you. But this episode will benefit anyone who is dedicated to growing as a clinician and looking to provide best care.

In this next portion of the clin-ed series, we take some time to discuss one of the most critical elements of being a competent clinician AND communicator, which is....having a rock solid orthopedic foundation!

The problem is, this foundation absolutely needs to be broadened and reconciled if you really want to provide that A1 care!!!

What we learn is school is so important, but if we leave it at that, it is often incomplete, and has the potential to be harmful to our patients.

In this episode we clarify more on:

  • New Grad Nihilism Crisis aka “nothing matters” phase
  • Differential Diagnosis Prep Work informing solid history taking
  • “The Diagnosis Dilemma" and the importance of context when discussing exam findings.
  • The Power of Prognosis 
  • How to communicate "uncertainty" with conviction
  • How to expand and reconcile a rock solid orthopedic foundation.

60. CALU Clinical Files with Shelbie Miller: Post Op Meniscectomy with a Side of Some Drama!

60. CALU Clinical Files with Shelbie Miller: Post Op Meniscectomy with a Side of Some Drama!

In this episode of clinical files, Shelbie works us through one of the rare times you get a zebra in clinical practice. What was supposed to be a breezy post op meniscectomy in a healthy 14 yo female ended up being massively complicated by a very strange neuro presentation that required some referring out.

We also go over Zak's very thought provoking case study involving a 14 yo f with BL "shin splints" that have been lingering for roughly 4 months. We discuss differential diagnosis, navigating the subjective interview, and what is the best possible course of action?

Tune in and let us know what you think!
