Shoulder to Shoulder, a Continent Apart

Posted on: May 03, 2018

A group of ten physical and occupational therapists from Methodist North Hospital recently traveled to Chile’s Puerto Montt Hospital to help train local kinesiologists and occupational therapists in shoulder rehabilitation.                          

The week-long trip, organized by fellow MLH Associate Luis Velasquez with the support of Nidia Diaz, kinesiologist coordinator for the Puerto Montt Hospital, included a two and a half hour course on shoulder rehabilitation, led by Krissi Moore from North’s PT department, and a full tour of Puerto Montt Hospital.

The MLH team spent time networking and collaborating with the Chilean therapists, discussing both treatment and delivery of care. Both groups instantly bonded over shared standards of teamwork, innovation and delivering the best care for patients.
