Title: Patient Expectations for Physical Therapy for Musculoskeletal Complaints

Presenter: Josh Subialka, PT, DPT, DSc

Lecture Topic: Individual and societal expectations help predict recovery, cost, healthcare utilization, quality, and satisfaction for several musculoskeletal conditions. Positive expectations can lead to a greater chance of positive outcomes, and vice versa for negative outcomes. This presentation will discuss what patients expect from an episode of PT for musculoskeletal complaints to deliver more patient-centered and psychologically informed care.
