During the pandemic there has been an increased need for telehealth services especially for delivery of healthcare. Dr. Lacey Bromley in the Department of Physical Therapy has been invited to assist the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) in developing guidelines for both practitioners and patients. She joined the rehabilitation subgroup of the NMSS Medical Advisory Committee to create best practices for telemedicine for those living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). In addition, she was invited by the NMSS to be a speaker for a live “Ask an MS Expert” webinar to speak directly to persons with MS. During that event she addressed questions about rehabilitation in MS as well as tips and tricks when accessing a healthcare provider via telehealth.

With COVID-19 being like nothing the healthcare field had ever seen, there was a lot to be learned by physical therapists around the country. Dr. Pam Bartlo from D’Youville’s Physical Therapy Department is also Vice President of the Academy of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Physical Therapy. In this capacity and as a cardiac and pulmonary PT, Pam was immediately called upon to help colleagues that weren’t used to treating patients with such large pulmonary system involvements. Since the pandemic started, Pam has given several webinars and continuing education presentations for PTs around the country. One such presentation was part of the PACER Project (Post-Acute COVID-19 Exercise and Rehabilitation). The presentation that Dr. Bartlo and her colleague gave on pulmonary rehabilitation currently has almost 11,0000 views on YouTube.
