Rehabilitation Science PhD student, Katie Butera, co-mentor Dr. Steven George, and UF Health clinician and first author, Kathryn Zeppieri, OT, collaborated on a platform presentation entitled, “Predictive Tools in Inpatient Disposition Outcomes: A Pilot Study for Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Patients,” for the 2017 Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) of the American Physical Therapy Association. The project was selected as the Academy of Acute Care Physical Therapy’s Outstanding Platform Presentation from the 2017 presented at Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) of the American Physical Therapy Association.
The presentation was judged in a number of areas, including the significance of the problem, scientific design and methodology, clinical implications of the work, and presentation style. Katie completed the data analysis for the design and served as second author. Reviewers encouraged the authors to considering submitting this and future work for review as potential publication in the Academy or Association research journals.
This is a great example of team science and interdisciplinary collaboration. Congratulations to Ms. Zeppieri, Katie, and their collaborators!
