Modernizing Rehab - Is the Term 'HEP' Outdated?

Apr 29, 2024 - 19:00 (EDT)
1 hour


The term "home exercise prescription" has a passive connotation. Instead, we should use a term that empowers patients in their rehabilitation journey. This shift emphasizes patient engagement and collaboration rather than a unilateral prescription. It fosters a sense of ownership, encouraging adherence and better outcomes. Moreover, it reflects the evolving role of physiotherapists from directive to facilitative partners in patient care. 

By reframing the language, physiotherapists promote a patient-centred approach, enhancing motivation, compliance, and ultimately, the effectiveness of rehabilitation interventions.

Join Dr. Ginger Garner for this interactive live webinar to answer the question 'Is the Term 'HEP' Outdated?' Come prepared to participate in the chat and join on the virtual stage (if desired).

As an HEP software provider, Embodia will also be chiming in during this webinar. Co-founder and PT, Maggie Bergeron, will join Ginger as a panelist. Embodia builds its platform based on member and community feedback, requests, and suggestions. You can see our live changelog here.
