Plenary Lecture – Ten Little Things

We live in an era of constant and rapid change. It is very easy to be overwhelmed by our problems and fall into a pattern of professional learned helplessness – the sense that our current challenges are unsolvable, permanent and pervasive. So how should rehab professionals react to overcome such discouragement and headwinds? Prof James McDeavitt, Dean of Clinical Affairs at the Baylor College of Medicine will be sharing his thoughts on practical steps to help promoting positive professional change. Join his plenary lecture on “Ten Little Things” at the 6th Singapore Rehabilitation Conference, co-organised with the 3rd CAREhab 2020 to learn more about steps overcoming these challenges. Prof McDeavitt will also be presenting his insights on 2 other lectures, “The Profession of PM&R in the US: Can I Have a Mulligan?” and “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Brainstem Anatomy in 30 Minutes” at the conference.
